What is considered a stable knit fabric?

Stable Knit Fabric

Generally, stretch between 18-25%. This is the best kind of knit for beginners to use for many patterns as they are easiest to sew and don’t over stretch underneath your sewing machine foot. Examples of stable knits include polar fleece and sweatshirt fabrics.

What type of knit is used for leggings?

My favorite fabrics to use for leggings are cotton/Lycra jersey or rib knits, and wool jersey or rib (with or without Lycra; wool has better recovery on its own than cotton does). Assuming you’ll be using one of these types of knit, you can deduct 10% from each of the measurements with a * after them for negative ease.

Which fabric is more dimensionally stable?

Type of material: The type of material used in the fabric affects the dimensional stability of the fabric up to some extent. If the yarn has been spun with fine and long staple fibres, it will give better dimensional stability. Polyester fibre shows better dimensional stability than cotton fibre.

What are the disadvantages of knitted fabric?
