Advantages And Disadvantages of Wool Fabric
Wool fabrics are fabrics woven from wool, which are divided into woven fabrics and knitted fabrics. Woven fabric is a fabric formed by intertwining warp and weft vertically with each other. Knitting fabrics are made by using knitting needles to form loops of yarn or filaments, and then stringing the loops into each other. Knitted fabrics are divided into single-sided and double-sided. Knitted fabrics can be divided into weft knitted fabrics and warp knitted fabrics: ①Weft knitted fabric is a fabric formed by feeding the yarns in the weft direction, and bending the same yarn into a circle in sequence and interlocking with each other. The most common sweater is the weft knitted fabric. ②The threading direction of warp knitted fabrics is just opposite to that of weft knitting. It is one or several groups of yarns arranged in parallel.
The main processing bases of wool in China are Zhejiang Kongpuyuan, Zhejiang Hangzhou, Guangdong Dalang, Hebei Qinghe and Inner Mongolia and other places.
