Ponte Roma Structure

Ponte knit fabric is a double-knit fabric with a firm and stable structure. Unlike many other knit fabrics, Ponte Roma has a similar appearance on both sides. It offers a sleek finish and is valued for its ability to retain its shape.

One of the standout features of Ponte Roma fabric is its GSM (Grams per Square Meter), which is over 300. This higher GSM indicates a denser material, contributing to its strength and durability. Despite its heavier weight, it retains a moderate amount of stretch and drape, characteristics that are highly valued in knit fabrics. 

How Ponte knit is make?

Ponte Roma fabric is manufactured using a double-knitting technique. In this process, two sets of needles and yarns are used to create a double-layered material. This results in a smooth surface on both sides and improves the fabric’s durability and structure.

Ponte Roma fabric is typically composed of fibers, often combining synthetic and natural materials. Commonly used fibers include polyester, rayon, spandex, and blends of these materials. The combination of fibers enhances the fabric’s stretch, recovery, and overall performance.

Ponte Roma Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is Ponte Roma fabric?

    Ponte Roma is a durable double-knit material made from a blend of natural and synthetic fibers, known for its comfort and stretch. It is heavier than a regular jersey knit, with a GSM over 300, providing strength and durability while maintaining stretch and drape. Its non-curling edges make it ideal for form-fitting clothing and simplify garment manufacturing.

  • What is ponte fabric made of?

    Ponte fabric, also known as Ponte di Roma, is made from a blend of three types of fibers: rayon, polyester, and spandex. This combination of materials contributes to its unique properties and makes it a versatile choice for various garments. The rayon offers a smooth, silky feel and adds breathability, the polyester contributes to the fabric’s strength and durability, and the spandex provides the essential stretch and flexibility that makes Ponte fabric comfortable to wear and suitable for form-fitting designs.

  • What is ponte roma fabric used for?

    Ponte Roma fabric is used for making various clothing items like skirts, treggings, jeggings, track pants, shorts, dresses, and jackets, suitable for different fashion styles. Its stability and ease of handling make it ideal for beginners in garment making. The fabric’s ability to create a streamlined look is favored for designs that seek a flattering fit. Its ease of care makes garments practical for regular wear and maintenance, appealing to various fashion needs and skill levels.

  • Does Ponte fabric pill?

    Ponte fabric is generally known for its pill-resistant qualities, meaning it is less likely to develop those small, fuzzy balls on the surface that are common in many other fabrics. However, it’s important to note that while Ponte fabric initially resists pilling, it can still experience pilling over time, particularly as it ages. The likelihood of pilling increases, mainly if the fabric’s blend contains more polyester. Pilling in Ponte fabric, when it does occur, is the result of shorter fibers protruding out of the yarn, which leads to a fuzzy texture on the surface of the fabric. This can happen through regular use and wear. Additionally, the spinning process during the production of the fabric can also contribute to pilling, as the material may rub against itself, causing fibers to break free and form pills. While Ponte fabric is more resistant to pilling than many other fabrics, it is not entirely pill-proof, particularly in the presence of a high percentage of polyester in its blend and with age and wear.

  • Does ponte fabric stretch?

    Yes, Ponte fabric does stretch. Its composition, which includes a blend of rayon, polyester, and spandex fibers, gives it moderate stretch and drape. This stretch is a key characteristic that contributes to the comfort and flexibility of garments made with Ponte fabric. Additionally, the type of stretch varies among Ponte fabrics. Some offer two-way stretch, stretching only from selvage to selvage, while others provide four-way stretch, allowing the material to stretch in all directions. This variability in stretch allows for a range of applications in clothing, catering to different fit and comfort needs.

  • Is ponte fabric warm?

    Ponte knit fabric, while not as breathable as cotton or linen, can be considered warm to some extent. This characteristic makes it not ideal for extremely warm weather due to its lower breathability. However, its warmth and relative breathability make it great for transeasonal pieces, such as vests. These garments provide some warmth while still allowing for a degree of breathability. Thus, Ponte fabric can be warm and is suitable for clothing worn in transitional seasons, where it offers a balance between providing warmth and allowing air circulation.
