The difference between knit yarn and woven yarn - Knitting using the best raw materials

Knitted yarns that are required for fiber thinness and long raw materials


It seems to become a boast story of knit, but when making (spinning) yarn with raw materials of natural materials, it is not well known that it is knit yarn that uses the best raw materials.

There are times when there is a story between knit shops that say, "Knitting yarn is impossible because it is impossible in the length of the raw material of this cashmere."
Why are knit yarns of high grade? It is the sweetness of the twist.


The basic principle of yarn making (spinning) is to bundle the fibers of the raw materials and twist them.
In addition to the amount of fiber that is bundled together, it is possible to pull even a strong and fairly thin thread if the twist is strong.

However, in the case of knit yarn, it is not possible to twist strongly because fluffy yarn is life.
If a strong twist is not put, it will come out if the fiber of each raw material is not long.

I want to make a soft thread, but I can't put a strong twist on it, so I have no other way but to use "long fiber raw materials". The long thin fiber is expensive.


Knitted art masters say that wool yarn can be eddered just by set it on a knitting machine and knitting it a little bit.
Because the thread other than wool is a strong twist to some extent, it does not come out and cut very much.


Wool, especially cashmere, angola, moheya, camel, alpaca, etc., which are said to be bounts, also have the characteristics of each raw material, and it is necessary to have knowledge and experience because there is a difference in the length of the fiber and the number of twists.
Cashmere is easy to come off when the fiber is short, the wind is hard to come out even if the twist is too strong. Alpacas are the easiest to get out of the hair and easy to wear. Angola is easy to cut hair and scatters like dust, and Moheya is also a straight fiber, so it has a hard time knitting with weak stretch. And so on.



Is textile a game after it becomes a fabric?


On the other hand, in the case of woven yarn, a firm thread is made by applying a considerable twist. The thread must be firm and strong because the warp is put up, woven while passing the weft, and it is packed with 筬 on it and made into a piece of cloth. In order to do that, I increase the number of twists and make it a strong thread to pull.


Cashmere fabrics make a unique weave by scratching the surface of the fabric and making hair stand out. The goodness of the flue greatly influences the evaluation of the fabric.

I've been using wild azami fruit mussels to scratch the dough and make it flur. That's why high-end fabric production plants in Europe were growing azami by home-grown. There seems to be a substitute such as metal these days, but there seems to be nothing better than the fruit of natural azami after all.

As if proud of its flue technology, we often use the mark of the fruit of the azami in the maker of the weave of cashmere. The mark of Loropiana, which is said to be representative of cashmere weaves, is also designed with azami fruit, and the crunchy is a fruit of morozami.


Even if the fiber of the same raw material is used like this, how to choose the raw material is different because the demand for the thread is different. It's pretty deep and interesting, isn't it?
