It is vital to select the appropriate type of interfacing for the particular garment. Woven interfacings have lengthwise and crosswise grain which is similar to the fashion fabric to maintain the drape of the garment. Interfacings are primarily utilized on knitted fabrics to stabilize and to prevent excessive stretching. There are several kinds of nonwoven interfacings.
• Stable – It has little grain in any direction and is excellent for shoulder pads.
• Stretch – It crosswise stretch but is stable lengthwise.
• All-bias – It has stretch in all directions.
Knit interfacings are generally softer and more flexible due to their excellent stretch properties. Weft-insertions and warp-insertions are created on a knit machine, and then either a warp or weft yarn is inserted. The addition of the extra yarns makes this knit interfacing fabric more stable. The weft insertion has the higher stretch on the bias direction whereas the warp insertions have the higher stretch in the crosswise direction. They can be fused at a lower temperature than other fusibles.
