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.

When looking at the basic properties of fabrics, certain features are necessary to consider: breathability, weight, drape, durability, softness, construction and whether it is a water-repellent fabric.

Most fabrics fall into 2 categories when it comes to their construction properties: woven and knitted. A textile’s specific properties and appearance are affected by not only the type of yarn used but how the material was constructed. The properties of woven fabrics differ greatly from the properties of knitted fabrics. Where one is made up of woven wefts and warps, the other is made by looping them. This difference in construction gives both fabric types completely different characteristics.

The properties of natural fabrics make them a popular choice for many DIYers, whether for making clothing, furnishings, accessories, upholstery or anything else. Their natural beauty, sustainable background and durability lends themselves to various projects.
