Select the correct Yarn count for Interlock 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.

Interlock

Say, the require GSM is 220

Yarn count  = (-0.206) X (GSM) + 80.56

= (-0.206) X (220) + 80.56

= -45.32 + 80.56

= 35.24

So, to knit 220 gsm Interlock fabric we need yarn count 35.24/s

Thanks & best regards

3. could you tell me regarding woven fabric on below issue:
suppose , fabric gsm is 245 how do i calculate fabric construction on basis of GSM?

4. In woven fabric we calculate it in yards or meter not GSM. Moreover, it is also not possible in knit fabric to detect any fabric construction from the GSM.

At first you should know the definition of fabric construction.

Thanks!
