Sweater fabric is a knitted fabric with a smooth front side and long loops on the back of the fabric. The backside is (to a greater or lesser extent) roughened. The more the backside is roughened, the softer and warmer the fabric is. With a French Terry, the back is not roughened. The front and the back of the fabric have a different look. Because of the knitted structure, sweater fabric is slightly elastic broadwise.
Suitable for: Jumpers, hoodies, jackets, sweatshirts, sweatpants, skirts, baby wear, shawls.
