In the textile process, there is a kind of fabric with a relatively complicated process method-knitted fabric. Knitted fabric is the yarn formed by bending the yarn into loops with knitting needles and interlocking each other.

Knitted fabrics are widely used in clothing fabrics and linings, home textiles and other products, and are loved by consumers. However, the counts and stitches of different knitted fabrics are very different, and the wearing effect will also be very different.

So what do counts and stitches mean?

Two concepts that are often said: one is called the number of branches, and the other is called the number of needles (number of roots)


The count refers to the thick thread of the silk thread, which is marked with S, such as 100S, also called 100 counts. The higher the count per unit area, the thinner the thread and the thinner the fabric. There are also double-strand single-strand, so I won’t say much. Why do you say Egyptian cotton is good? Because of the high-count cotton, short-staple cotton cannot be woven at all.

The number of stitches refers to the density of the fabric, using (t) (c), the most old-fashioned way is that T is polyester. It is pure cotton. Now the American style is generally called T, such as a bedding, called 200T.

What does 200 stitches mean? For example, for a piece of fabric, the British standard will generally mark 133*72, which means that within 1 inch: there are 133 warp yarns and 72 weft yarns. Then 133 plus 72 will wait until 205, and the American density standard method will be simplified to 200T. But for this density mark, the number of threads is only mentioned for general bedding, not for clothes.

The count and the number of stitches generally complement each other. Only high counts can have high density. For example, 40S cotton fabrics are generally 250T, 200T,


Simply tell everyone an arbitrary judgment standard

Slag Level 1: shirts less than 40 pieces, bedding less than 30 pieces, and bedding less than 200 tons

Ordinary level: 40-60 shirts and bedding 300T-600T

Good first level: 60-100 shirts, 800T-1000T bedding, negative two students said "high-count cotton with more than 80 counts is close to the texture of silk" is a bit problematic, in fact, the difference is very big. More than 80 pieces have a silky luster, so there was a saying of mercerized cotton in the past, but now the concept of mercerized cotton is very broad.

Good level: 100-140 shirts, 1000T-1400T bedding (from this stage onwards, it is the choice of real big-name fabrics)

Luxury level: more than 140 shirts, and more than 1400T bedding, but note that the higher the better, the 140-count pure cotton fabric yarn is already very thin, and wearing shirts in summer will feel too thin and uncomfortable, so The mainstream is still 120-140S, and bedding above 1400T is generally very heavy and expensive.

In the same way, bedding above 80S will feel too thin, light and has no texture, especially when sleeping at night, if it is not a fitted sheet but a sheet, it will easily slip and run. So don't blindly pursue indicators, and look at personal feelings on the basis of numbers.

Why are there no counts on many clothes? Generally, their counts are very low, so they will not be marked. Generally, as long as the fabrics of the big brands are used well, most of them will be marked with joy.

If you use the British method to measure density, in addition to paying attention to the value of the addition of two numbers, you should also pay attention to the difference between the previous number (longitude) and the latter number (latitude). 40 pieces, 133*100 is better than 133*72. If you encounter such a strange thing as 128*68, just tell him to fuck off.
