Interlocks & Jerserys

Interlocks & Jerserys

Both knitted fabrics, jerseys and interlocks are broadly similar fabrics, but where jersey fabrics are single knits, interlock are double knits.

This means that jersey knits are generally a little more clingy and softer, while interlock fabrics are a bit firmer but will usually hold their shape longer. Both can be used to make a variety of garments from dresses to sportswear.

Here at Spotlight, choose from cotton and polyester fabrics including jersey, combed cotton, interlock, spandex and other knitted fabrics in a huge range of different colours and styles including plain, patterned and striped fabrics.

Can I purchase knitted apparel fabrics at Spotlight?

Yes, Spotlight stock a wide variety of knitted apparel fabrics including jersey, Ponta di Roma, double knits, ribbing and many more. Moist of our fabrics are available by the metre, except a few which are available in pre-cut pieces. This is more economical if for instance you only need a small piece for some cuffs or a waistband, or want to use some for craft projects.

What are the features of knitted apparel fabric?

In principle, there are two main types of knitted apparel fabrics, weft-knitted and warp-knitted.

Weft-knitted fabric is made by looping together long lengths of yarn. It can be made by hand or machine. The yarn runs in rows across the fabric. If a stitch is dropped, or the fabric is damaged, it will ladder down the length of the fabric. The fabric is stretchy and comfortable and is used for socks, T-shirts and jumpers.

In warp-knitted fabric, the loops interlock vertically along the length of the fabric. Warp knits are slightly stretchy and do not ladder. Warp-knitted fabric is made by machine. It is often used for swimwear and underwear.

What are the benefits of knitted apparel fabric?

Some of the main benefits of knitted fabrics are:

Stretch - Sewing with knitted fabric can be a challenge, mainly because these fabrics have plenty of stretch and the edges may curl up as you work. However, this feature makes it possible to create form-fitting garments that do not require buttons, zippers or hooks. Knit materials stretch in all four directions, which is useful for creating comfortable t-shirts, underwear and other one-piece garments.

Easy Care - Depending on the material used in the fabric and the size of the knitting, knit fabrics are usually easy to care for. Most of them are suitable for machine washing, although a gentle temperature and spin speed are recommended. Wool knits do need more care, with most of them requiring hand washing in warm water with liquid soap, and air-drying flat to avoid stretching the garment's shape.

Comfortable to Wear - Most people like knitted fabrics for their softness, warmth and stretch. The softness does depend on the fabric or material yarns used. Properly cared for knitted fabrics retain their shape and elasticity and do not wrinkle easily, which increases their aesthetic appeal.

Knitted fabrics are also easier to produce than woven ones, involving fewer man hours and machinery, so the cost is usually lower than that of woven fabrics, but they may be less durable.

Does Spotlight sell other types of fabric too?

Yes, as well as over 400 different types of knitted apparel fabric, available in many different colourways and designs, Spotlight stocks a full range of woven fabrics and specialty fabrics, and the range is further extended with decorating and interior fabrics, craft fabrics and general-purpose fabrics, so check out the full range today!
