The methods used for printing have developed over time.
We can dye at different stages during the production process. We can use dyes to make designs in a process called “resist printing”.
How do we improve the affinity of dyes for fibers?
We give color to textiles using dyes and pigments.
We don’t need to use fibers to make nonyarn fabrics, we can just use polymers in solution or look to nature.
The nonyarn fabrics usually have fairly descriptive names.
We can make fabrics without using yarns.
Weft and warp knits don’t have warp or weft yarns, but they do go in different directions. The warp knits include tricot and raschel knits.
The weft knits include jersey, rib and purl knits.
Knits are far newer than wovens and borrow vocabulary from wovens.
