Select the correct Yarn count for Lycra 1×1 Rib fabric:
In my post I will introduce you with some equations, with which we can select the actual yarn count for knit the fabric. These are vary for fabric types.
Lycra 1×1 Rib
Say, the require GSM is 220
Yarn count = (-0.119) X (GSM) + 59.12
= (-0.119) X (220) + 59.12
= -26.18 + 59.12
So, to knit 220 gsm Lycra 1×1 Rib fabric we need yarn count 32.94/s
Thanks & best regards
