There’s a new Inventorium space inside the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto, part of the space included live demonstrations of weaving, plus weaving and knitting activities for visitors to learn about these two technologies for making textiles from various plant-sources.
Recently Effort’s Eco-Essentials fabrics were part of a textile science educational exhibit/activity kit at the Science Centre teaching the difference between woven and knit textiles.
We have both in our fabric collection.
Do you know the difference?
Woven fabric is any textile formed by weaving. Woven fabrics are often created on a loom, and made of many threads woven on a warp and a weft. Technically, a woven fabric is any fabric made by interlacing two or more threads at right angles to one another.
Knitted fabric is a textile that results from knitting. Its properties are distinct from woven fabric in that it is more flexible and can be more readily constructed into smaller pieces, making it ideal for socks and hats. T-shirt are considered a jersey knit.
The basic difference between woven and knit fabrics is in the yarn or thread that composes them. A knit fabric is made up of a single yarn, looped continuously to produce a braided look. … Multiple yarns comprise a woven fabric, crossing each other at right angles to form the grain.
Efforts Eco Essentials has a wide variety of hemp and bamboo clothing styles to choose from for both men and women at very reasonable prices. They also have the fabrics for sale as well, and they will ship anywhere in North America.
