Non-woven, Woven or Knit Interfacing
non-woven, woven and knit interfacing
There are three kinds of interfacing fabric are used widely in our daily life. Here are non woven interfacing, woven and knit 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 stretch, so it is particularly easy to use. Non-woven interfacing is the mostly widely used interfacing base on cheaper prices and available properties.
Woven interfacing 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 woven interfacing, because it is more environmental and stable.
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 jerseys and other stretch fabrics as it will stretch with the garment and not hinder it.
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.
