Tricot has a unique weave that allows it to be smooth on one side while sporting texture on the other. Here are some basic facts about tricot fabric and how to the material is used. Basically a plain warp knit fabric, tricot fabric can be created with an array of fibres and fibre blends. It is not unusual for various types of tricot to be manufactured with the use of cotton, wool, silk, rayon, or nylon, or any combination of fibres. Because the pattern for tricot fabric is a close knit design with the fibres running lengthwise while employing an interloped yarn pattern, the texture of tricot is a little different from some other types of material. One side will feature fine ribs running in a lengthwise pattern, while the other side will feature ribs that run in a crosswise direction. The finished look of tricot is that of a sturdy yet soft material that can be ideal for a number of applications. A popular use of tricot fabric is for women’s undergarments. Because the material can be made with fibres that allow for not only support but also comfort, tricot is often employed with the manufacture of panties in particular. Tricot can be created with a fabric pattern as well as dyed any number of colours, so the selection of tricot undergarments is not limited when it comes to the look. As a perfect choice in warm weather, tricot undergarments are especially helpful, since they do allow the body to breathe.
