Knits vs. Woven Fabrics: A Fashionable Showdown

At Rarity Fashion, we celebrate the beauty of both knits and woven fabrics in our handmade, heirloom quality kids fashions. Today, let's dive into the fascinating world of fabrics and explore the differences between knits and woven fabrics.


Knits: Cozy and Versatile

When it comes to knits, comfort takes centre stage. These fabrics are typically made by interlocking loops of yarn, resulting in a stretchy and flexible material. Knit fabrics, such as bamboo, jersey or rib knits, are perfect for those active playdates and adventures. They allow for freedom of movement, making them a go-to choice for kids who love to jump, run, and explore. Plus, their elasticity ensures a snug fit, making them excellent for growing children. So, next time you want your little one to feel both cozy and stylish, reach for a knit!

Wovens: Classic and Refined

On the other side of the fashion spectrum, we have woven fabrics. These fabrics are created by weaving yarns together in a perpendicular pattern, resulting in a more structured and stable material. Woven fabrics, like cotton or linen, exude elegance and refinement. They are perfect for special occasions, providing a polished and sophisticated look. Wovens are also great for creating intricate details and patterns, making them a favourite for our meticulous designs. Whether it's a fancy dress or a tailored shirt, woven fabrics bring a touch of timeless charm to any outfit.


Choosing the Right Fabric:

Now that we've explored the merits of both knits and wovens, how do you decide which one to choose? Consider the occasion, comfort level, and style you're aiming for. Knits offer flexibility and ease of movement, while wovens bring a touch of sophistication. 


Whether it’s the cozy comfort of knits or the refined elegance of wovens, we believe that both fabric choices are perfect for celebrating rare moments and the magic of childhood. At rarity we offer both options, and seamlessly blend them together in each seasons cohesive capsule kids wardrobes.
