Knit Jacquard

At New Creation our knitwear is consistently the best selling and most popular products we offer. In order to keep prices down and quality up for our customers, we are always exploring the newest knit techniques and technologies. One of our favorite techniques, knit jacquard, has become much more mainstream (and therefore cheaper to manufacture). Once confined to a heavy sweater-like thickness, knit jacquard fabrics can now be manufactured at considerably lighter weights thanks to improved technologies.

Knit Jacquard is different than a traditional knit fabric in that the machine used to manufacture it is much more complex and has computer aided design capabilities. These capabilities allow the use of automated patterning, ability to use 2 or more yarns at a time, and can be used to create double-sided reversable fabrics which can not be made on a traditional knitting machine. Below we have several examples of what can be done with knit jacquard.

Clean geometric patterns look fantastic when knitted directly into the fabric.
