What "Jersey" means?

Fabric characteristics

Jersey is a knit fabric mainly used in the production of clothing. It was produced of wool initially but is now made of:

  • wool,
  • cotton,
  • synthetic materials.

 The fabric can be a very stretchy single knitting with one plain side and one stacked side, generally lightweight, cloth. This is the cloth most commonly used to create Tshirts when produced with lightweight yarn. It can also be a double knitted jersey with less stretch, which creates a heavier fabric of two single jerseys knitted together to leave the two flat sides on the outsides of the fabric, with the piles in the middle. Interlock cloth is sometimes used as a knit for polo shirts and is usually the favorite tie for Pima cotton knits. Jersey is regarded to be an outstanding fabric for draped clothes like garments and tops for women.
