How to Identify a Jersey, Rib and Interlock Fabric

A very easy to understand identify the three is given here.

What is 3-Fleece and 2-Fleece

Three end and two end, course cut (10 to 14), knitting techniques are conventionally used to produce knitted fleece with low stitch densities (600-700). Fabric with a higher stitch density is generally perceived to be a higher quality fabric because it has a lower shrinkage rate and a more stable print platform.

The term "stitch density" is frequently used in knitting instead of a linear measurement of courses and wales, it is the total number of needle loops in a square area measurement such as square inch. It is obtained by multiplying the number of courses per inch by the number of wales per inch. Stitch density tends to be a more accurate measurement because tension acting in one direction in the fabric may, for example, produce a low reading for the courses and a high reading for the wales, which when multiplied together cancel the effect out.

Two end, course cut knitting techniques are generally used to produce knitted fleece fabric with lower stitch density, which is generally perceived to be low quality fabric. Two end knitted fleece fabric constructions are typically less costly to produce compared to three end knitted fleece fabric constructions because of lower yarn material costs.


Both three end and two end course cut knitting techniques can be used to produce knitted fleece fabric having the same fabric weight and the same stitch density. However, because three end knitting uses three yarn ends, as opposed to two yarn ends used by two end knitting, a yarn having a finer yarn count, which is significantly more expensive, is necessary to produce knitted fleece fabric with the same fabric weight and same stitch density. Thus, it is much more costly to produce knitted fleece fabric of a given weight and stitch density using a three end knitting technique. See a patent based on this information here.

I have just started a new T shirt business and i got my first lot of t shirts made from Tiruppur, since i was new with limited knowledge i was too dependent on manufacturer and in-spite of me telling him that i need good quality he messed up and me being here in Delhi could not monitor much never the less few lessons learned and now i am planning to get the second lot from Delhi NCR.

I plan to go for 26's single jersey 160-170 gsm and 30's 150 gsm fabric.
Now what all things should i keep in mind before ordering, how do i make sure that they use good yarn and dye so that there is very less shrinkage and no bleeding. I am looking for a good quality bio washed fabric.

Please provide inputs and suggestions, also if you know anyone around NCR who does great job at competitive prices.
