A. How to understand the width of the fabric?
The width is the actual width of the fabric, the distance between the outermost edge of the warp yarn on both sides of the fabric, also known as the width of the door. The width of the door is also called cloth seal, cloth seal is the name of the Guangdong area, the width of the door is the name of the Yangtze River Delta area. Now you know, there are three kinds of fabric widths in China: width, width, and fabric seal. The general Chinese unit for fabric width is expressed in inches or centimeters.
Generally, the cloth sold by textile factories is edge-to-edge width, and the garment factory will ask to know the cuttable width of the fabric, which is the range available when the fabric is being processed.
Cuttable width = edge-to-edge width – 2 inches.
Wide width means the fabric is 2.3~2.35 meters wide, narrow width means the fabric is 1.5~1.6 meters wide. Generally speaking, the wide width of the sheets and covers made without splicing, most of them will be in the bag in a prominent place to indicate “full width”, narrow width in the sheets and covers are definitely spliced. Most people like the wide width (especially the elderly who have suffered, because the patchwork always makes people feel the lack of food and clothing economic tension. But I’ve seen a lot of broken flowers and broken square patchwork do the bedding is very British manor style, very beautiful), the same quality of the cost of the wide fabric may also be higher.
Second, the material width of the size of the influencing factors
- The thicker the yarn count, the larger the width of the door.
- The heavier the weight of the finished product, the smaller the width of the door.
- The larger the horizontal shrinkage, the larger the width of the door will be; (the general effect is very small, only 2-3CM up and down)
- The structure of the needle will increase the width of the door, and the flat needle will make the door width smaller.
At present, the market on the fabric width of the standard common 36 inches, 44 inches, 56-60 inches, etc., respectively, called narrow, medium and wide, higher than 60 inches of fabric for the extra-wide width, generally often called wide cloth, today’s China’s extra wide fabric width can reach 360 cm.
