Defining tricot fabric

Resources | October 7, 2009 | By:

We have a project requiring tricot fabric. What is that?

Tricot is the name of a particular type of warp knit fabric, accomplished on a tricot knitting machine. Basically, in a tricot knit, two parallel lines of yarns are interloped, the loops being formed in roughly the warp direction. As compared to filling knits such as jersey, tricot knits are known for being dimensionally stable and not running. Tricot has a number of industrial applications, including as a base material for coating and laminating, filtration and automotive seating.
