List of various types of yarn compositions (Knit Fabric)

  1. 100% Cotton: Yarn made entirely from cotton fibers. Cotton yarn is known for its softness, breathability, and suitability for warm-weather garments and accessories.
  2. VP (Viscose 80%, Polyester 20%): This yarn contains 80% viscose and 20% polyester fibers. Viscose gives the yarn a silky and smooth texture, while polyester adds durability.
  3. CVC (Cheap Value Cotton – 60% Cotton, 40% Polyester): CVC yarn is a blend of 60% cotton and 40% polyester. It offers a balance between the softness of cotton and the durability of polyester.
  4. Organic Cotton: Yarn made from cotton fibers that are grown without the use of synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, following organic farming practices.
  5. 100% Cotton Carded: Similar to 100% cotton, but the cotton fibers are carded before spinning, which can result in a slightly different texture.
  6. 100% Carded Slub: Yarn made from 100% cotton fibers, with a slub texture. Slub yarns have thicker and thinner areas, creating a textured look when knitted or crocheted.
  7. 100% PSCP Cotton: Primary Sustainable Cotton Program
  8. 95% Cotton: A yarn with a high cotton content (95%) and likely a small percentage of another fiber or blend for added characteristics.
  9. 100% Cotton Combed: Similar to 100% cotton, but the cotton fibers are combed before spinning, resulting in a smoother and more refined yarn.
  10. 65% Cotton 35% Polyester: A blend of 65% cotton and 35% polyester. This blend combines the softness of cotton with the durability and wrinkle resistance of polyester.
  11. 100% Viscose: Viscose yarns tend to have a subtle sheen or luster
  12. 100% Polyester: Polyester will feel very smooth and silky.

These different yarn compositions have distinct characteristics and are chosen based on the requirements of knitting.
