Back to wordbookTricot Knit
A warp knit fabric in which the fabric is formed by interloping adjacent parallel yarns. The warp beam holds thousands of yards in a parallel arrangement, and these yarns are fed into the knitting area simultaneously. Sufficient yarns to produce the final fabric width and length are on the beam. Tricot knits are frequently used in women's lingerie items such as slips, bras, panties, and nightgowns.
