ABSTRACT
The article discusses some of the mechanical developments on warp knitting machinery and weft knitting machinery. There has been a lively production of outerwear fabrics using weft and warp knitting machinery. In the past years, warp knitting machinery was used in making outerwear particularly when warp guides were first fitted to the hand frame. After that, came the loom and the weft knitting frame but with warp frame, there is a higher rate of production than either of the two competitors in terms of wider frames. Meanwhile, the mechanical developments of the weft knitting machinery and weaving machinery outpaced the development of warp knitting equipment in view of outerwear that is why the warp knitting manufacturers instead focused on lace and openwork fabrics.
