Getting Started With Sweater Designing And Production
The textile industry will continue to exist as long as there are still people in the planet. Of course, you would want to cover the delicate and sensitive parts of your body with something comfortable. Now that the cold season is fast approaching, many are contemplating on buying new sweaters in order to match with fashion as well as their need.
When the topic is sweaters, one cannot do away with ugly Christmas sweaters. For over more than a decade now, this trend seems to thrive. This has not only become a trend but has been part of the American culture. There are also a lot of entrepreneurs who are into the production of this kind of sweaters. The ugly Christmas sweater is just one distinct type of sweater.
There are two major types of sweaters. The first is known as the full fashioning sweater while the other one is the cut and sew type. Full fashioning sweaters undergo the process of creating sweater which is being assembled from pieces of fabrics. This will definitely take less yarn but will consider a higher level of skill when manipulating the pieces of cloth since this will have to be assembled with the use of a linking machine.
In the cut and sew sweater types, the fabrics are knit using large panels and are then cut out like a woven garment and is then sewn on a machine. This type of sweater processing is what is commonly used in the US. The cut and sew type of sweaters are simple when stitching and in the overall design phase of the product. However, the trend is that designs have become very complicated in that companies that create sweaters have to go to other countries and have their designs created in foreign soil. These manufacturing facilities will usually provide knitdowns. These are large swatches with stitch designs which are used in creating a design and new samples of sweater.
Someone who knits from home with the use of a home knitting machine is known as a production knitter. Machines used in this production are usually smaller versions of the various automated machines in plants.
