Here are three kinds of interfacing fabric are used widely in our daily life. Here are non-woven interfacing, woven and knit interfacing. Here are some description about them.

Non Woven interfacing

Non-woven interfacing is made by bonding fibers together and therefore has no grain. You can cut it in any direction, plus it will not ravel, so it is particularly easy to use. Non-woven interfacing is the mostly widely used interfacing base on it’s cheaper prices and available properties.

Woven interfacing

Woven interfacing, like woven fabric, has a lengthwise and crosswise grain. When you cut woven interfacing, be sure to match the grain of the interfacing with the grain of the part of the garment to be interfaced, to make sure the two layers of fabric work together properly. Europe and America like using woven interfacing, because it is more environmental and stable.

Knit interfacing

Knit interfacing is made by knitting the fiber together, and so it has an amount of stretch in it. Knit interfacing is especially suitable for use with jerseys and other stretch fabrics as it will stretch with the garment and not hinder it (if you apply woven interfacing to a knit fabric, you reduce the fabric’s stretch properties as the interfacing layer is unable to stretch with the outer fabric layer).

The decision as to whether to buy woven, non-woven or knit interfacing is usually dictated by the pattern and / or type of fabric you are using. As a general rule, non-woven interfacing is suitable for most tasks unless you are sewing with a jersey of stretch fabric in which case knit interfacing is appropriate. You only really need to consider woven interfacing for particularly fine fabrics such as sheers and silks, where a very natural shaping is essential to preserve the qualities of the fabric.
