key difference between knit and woven fabrics

Knit fabrics, a staple in the production of various apparel by some of the top textile companies in India, are produced by interlocking loops from a single yarn using knitting machines. This method results in a fabric with a distinctive braided or looped appearance. Known for their softness, stretchiness, and flexibility, knit fabrics offer significant width-wise (horizontal) stretch, offering comfortable movement. However, the stretch is somewhat constrained lengthwise (vertical).
