Effect of Knitted Structure on the Properties of Knitted Fabric
Ahmed Asif | Moshiur Rahman  | Farial Islam Farha
Abstract: Fabric structure shows great impact on different properties of weft knitted fabric if processing parameters such as, yarn count, stitch length, machine diameter, needle gauge, dyeing parameters and finishing parameters remain constant. This study investigates the effect of three weft knitted structures, plain jersey, single lacoste and double lacoste on several properties such as dimensional stability, fabric width, areal density, spirality, resistance to pilling, color fastness to washing, color fastness to light and color fastness to rubbing at finished state. From the analysis it is seen that for single jersey fabrics areal density, fabric width, resistance to pilling, width shrinkage increases with the increase of tuck stitch and spirality, length shrinkage decreases. From the investigation it is also found that fabric structure has less influence on color fastness to washing, color fastness to light and color fastness to rubbing.
Keywords: Areal density, Dimensional stability, Fabric width, Fastness property, Pilling resistance and Spirality
