Fine rib

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Comparison of double rib (above) with fine rib

Feinripp refers to right / left knitwear that is made on circular knitting machines . When stretched, you can see alternating right and left stitches on both sides in the course of a row of stitches . The knitted wales form a fine continuous rib in the longitudinal direction.

Material made of fine combed yarns , which has a slight elasticity due to its structure, is particularly easy to wear and well suited for cuts that fit the body. Therefore mainly from rib are vests and underpants ( lower knitwear ) made.

Today, cotton with a proportion of polyurethane ( elastane ) is mostly used as the fiber .

Double rib is coarser and more elastic than fine rib.
