What is the difference between single knit fabric and double knit fabric

Single jersey fabrics and double jersey fabrics differ in structure and appearance. Single-knit fabrics are relatively simple in appearance and structure, while double-knit fabrics are more diverse and designable. The choice of which fabric to use depends on the needs and design requirements of the garment or product being made. Here are their main differences:

     Construction: Single jersey fabrics are constructed from a single layer of fabric with distinct grain and pattern on only one side. Double-knit fabrics are formed from two layers of fabric interwoven through a knit structure, with texture and pattern on both sides.

     Appearance: Since single jersey fabrics have texture and pattern on only one side, the other side is usually smooth or slightly textured. Double knit fabrics have textures and patterns on both sides, which can be the exact same design or different designs.

     Wearable way: Since single jersey fabric has textures and patterns on only one side, it is usually used to make garments with relatively simple appearance requirements, such as T-shirts, underwear, etc. Both sides of the double-knitted fabric have textures and patterns, and different sides can be selected as the appearance of the fabric according to needs, making the design more diverse.

     Material selection: Both single-knit and double-knit fabrics can use different fiber materials, such as cotton, wool, silk, polyester, etc. When choosing a material, the main considerations are the use of the fabric, season and comfort.
