Tarzana, CA  August 11, 2010 – The FabricLink Network, the premiere resource for educational information on textile fibers and fabrics on the Internet, today added a new sweater knit and yarn resources to their updated website.
 
The new “Sweater Knit and Yarn Resource” contains in-depth information and images on a wide variety of products and processes. The resource link is located in the Fabric University http://www.fabriclink.com/University/knit/home.cfm area of FabricLink.com, which features a variety of educational information about fabric history, yarn facts, and fiber production, as well as the quick and informative fabric seminar. As increasing numbers of industry insiders are discovering, there is no other website that offers such comprehensive information about textile fibers and fabrics.
 
“We are very excited about our new ‘Sweater Knit and Yarn Resource,'” says Kathy Swantko, president of the FabricLink Network. “It's a great way to learn about yarn and knit constructions.  The close-up photograph of each sweater knit and yarn sample, along with the complete description, explains the production and usage of various fabric and yarn types.”
 
The new information guide covers a range of knit constructions from a basic jersey and rib knit to more specialized constructions like a jacquard knit or a plaited knit. The resource also includes various sweater knit trim and finishing techniques, including the crocheted edge, curl-edge trim, border trim, and linking. There are also views of 15 different specialty yarns, along with descriptions, ranging from the basic filament and spun yarns, to the more unique marled yarn and space dyed yarn, to the distinctive chenille and bouclé yarns.
 
According to Swantko, the new “Sweater Knit and Yarn Resource” will be continuously expanded to eventually include a full range of knit, woven and non-woven constructions. The company plans to create a complete guide for all types of fabrics and yarns, with visual examples and descriptions of how they're made, along with the qualities for every sample.  The goal is to create an invaluable resource for fashion and apparel designers, as well as for textile and fashion design students.

“Our ‘Sweater Knit and Yarn Resource' will always be a work in progress,” she says.
