A plain stitch knit fabric with a set of yarns pulled out on the technical back to form loops, as in woven terry cloth. Unlike woven terry, the loops are only on one side, and the fabric stretches.

Terry knit is usually made of cotton and cotton blends, also manufactured fibers. It probably was originally made of silk.

Uses: Sportswear, loungewear, sleepwear, children’s clothing
