FAQ: Wildemasche knit fabric

What kind of fabric is this?

It is a 4 color jacquard knit fabric. Fine knit in gauge E18, so it has 18 stitches per inch.

The design is visible in the fabric because the stitches are knitted in different colors. One pixel in the design becomes one knitted stitch in the fabric.

What are the DIY knit panel details?

A fabric panel has a fixed height and width. So you cannot have it by the yard, but by number of pieces. The Wildemasche knit panel size is ca. 155x80cm. The panel has a cuff as solid border at the bottom. Left, right and top have to be cut and sewn.

The threads on the left are due to production, then there is a spacer in light blue, then the actual design starts.

The cuff at the bottom is unicolor, in the sample it is unicolor white. The design above is jacquard knitted, the other colors used in the design lay behind the white. That is why the white there has a color cast of the other colors (sand, light blue and dark blue).

For quantities of 60pcs / 50 meters or more, production by the yard resp. meter is possible. Please send enquiry with email.

What are the limitations of the fabric?

Each item is knitted and processed as single piece. The design can be done freely, you can choose from a color palette with 29 colors, giving over 400 color combinations. Because of this complete freedom of design, not every piece comes out exactly the same.

  • Depending on design and color distribution, deviation in size and weight are possible
  • One pixel in the design becomes one knitted stitch in the fabric. Due to the jacquard knit, and because knitted stitches are not squarish like pixel, there is a distortion of about 25% between design and knit. This can be compensated by stretching the design left/right, or by compressing it up/down. In the visualisation of the fabric in the Online Designer, the effect is shown.
    If you e.g. need your design to have perfect circles in any case, printed fabric may be a better choice for you.
  • Alignment when steaming might also not be perfectly accurate. This may not stand out for small tiled patterns, but rather for patterns with stripes going over the total width or length.

If in doubt, email us before you order, or order only a single piece for testing before going to larger quantities. You can use the "Send enquiry" or "Share design" button (only desktop version) at the top right of the Online Designer to send the current state of your design in progress.
