Ribbing/cuffing fabric which can be sewn with other knit fabrics such as French Terry, jersey and sweat shirting.
Ribbing is a double-knit fabric in which the rib wales or vertical rows of stitches intermesh alternatively on the face and the back of the fabric. Rib knit fabrics have good elasticity and shape retention, especially in the width.
This fabric can be used for complete garments, although bare in mind that it is both tubular and much narrower width than other fabrics. Lightweight sweaters in rib knits provide a close, body-hugging fit.
Ribbing is most suitable for the cuffs and necklines of sweaters, the ankles of sweat pants and edging most stretch fabrics.
