Double Knit

Double knit is a type of knit fabric that is made with a double weave construction usually creating a more stable knit. Double knits give a more structured, stable look to your garments and are great for beginners wanting to sew with knits. Double knits are suitable for tops, pants, skirts, dresses, sturdy leggings and cardigans.

Other types of double knits include: Liverpool Knits, Jacquard Double Knits, Scuba Knits and Techno Knits. We also offer a selection of Ponte Knit in its own category.

Scuba knit is a medium weight double knit with a smooth, spongey texture. It is best for strong, structured garments. Techno knits are similar to scuba knit, but is a little lighter in weight, making it have a bit more drape than scuba knit. 

Liverpool knits are a double knit with a fine texture on the face. They are have a soft, yet stable hand and are similar to a scuba knit. They also have good stretch and recovery.

Jacquard Double Knits have a design woven into the fabric. They vary in weight and come in an array of designs and colors.
