More About Terry Knitted Fabrics:

Terry knitted Fabric is a variety of knitted fabric. Terry knitted fabric is characterized by soft touch, thick texture, excellent water absorption and heat retention. Terry knitted fabric can be divided into single-sided and double-sided Terry loop fabrics. Terry knitted fabric after shearing or other process can be turned into fleece or velvet fabric.

Terry knitted fabric features loops of fibers that are quite absorbent, soft and cozy to the touch.

Terry knitted fabric typically features a looped texture on only one side of the fabric and a smooth texture on the other side. Typically, the smooth side of the fabric is considered the right side, though many sewists choose to feature the looped side in their garments for a bit of visual interest.

While Terry knitted fabric is technically a jersey fabric, it's heavier in weight than a standard cotton jersey and lighter than a sweatshirt fleece.

Another characteristic of Terry knitted fabric is that the looped side can be a different color than the smooth side. This provides the opportunity to sew contrasting cuffs and neckbands on knit tops by simply using the other side of the fabric.
