Double-knit interlock
Double knits are woven with two yarns and two sets of needles to create a more stable fabric, which looks the same on front and back. Double knits retain their shape, and work well for tailored garments. Choose double knits for jackets, pants, skirts and dresses, or when you want tops, t-shirts, and sleepwear with a denser weight and no see-through.

Rib knits are made from two types of stitches, knit and purl, that create visible vertical ribs on both sides of the fabric. Rib knits have considerable crosswise stretch, but minimal lengthwise stretch. Use it for ribbing, cuffs, tops, jackets, leggings, and other form-fitting garments. Rib knits are a great fabric choice for children's clothes.

Single knits are made from a single layer of fabric, providing a lighter weight and more fluidity in clothing.
