Fabric Properties

Fabric properties are the characteristics of a specific fabric. The properties of woven fabrics are very different to the properties of knitted fabrics. Build up your knowledge of these properties to ensure that you always choose the right textile for your project. By properties of fabrics we refer to the unique qualities that make each type of fabric different from another. Fabric characteristics can include things like texture, thickness, stretchiness and durability.

To examine the properties of a fabric, there's a range of criteria to look at: drape, resilience, airflow, weight, smoothness, its weave, and waterproof qualities. 

Fabrics usually feature either a knitted or woven construction, and most fabrics fall into one of these categories, but the weave is not the only factor that influences a fabric's appearance. The type of yarn and method of construction are also hugely relevant to the properties of a fabric. The properties of a knitted fabric vary from those of a woven fabric. One is made by looping warps and wefts, while the other consists of weaving them. The method of construction creates unique characteristics for each fabric. 

DIYers tend to gravitate towards the properties of natural fabrics, using them for everything from accessories to furnishings. The strength, natural radiance and eco-friendly production of these fabrics make them suitable for various types of projects.
