Reliable Cotton Knit Fabric Producer in Vietnam

Knit fabric supplier in Vietnam

We are a reliable knit fabric supplier in Vietnam. We buy cotton, polyester, viscose, modal and spandex yarn from suppliers all over Asia. We import the yarn and drop ship it to our partner knitting factories. We can make jersey, pique, jacquard, rib, waffle, interlock, french terry or Ponte Roma. We can make slub, space-dye, tie-dye, hot TR, burn-out, melange and more. We send the fabric to our partner dye houses and manage the dyeing to meet your requirements like Pantone color, weight and finish. If you need special finishes like acid wash, silicone wash, wicking or anti-microbial, then we can do it. We check the fabric using the 4-point checking system and take full responsibility.

Do you need stripes? We can produce engineered stripes with a repeat of 1.6 meters. We can also offer AOP stripes. AOP stands for all over print.

China still offers great quality and competitive pricing compared to locally made circular knit textiles. Most factories in Vietnam buy their fabric from China. We also have good sources of textile fabric in China. We often buy polyester and fleece fabric from China because the quality is good and the prices are cheaper than making it in Vietnam. We manage the shipping and always inspect the fabric before cutting.

The fabric dye-houses we work with are Oeko-Tex certified and if you need Organic GOTs certified fabric we have supply chains established to support your needs. Generally our fabric lead time is 2 to 4 weeks and we always send you lab dibs for approval ASAP.

We can print on the fabric using any quality of ink you are willing to pay for. Our screen printing partners can do piece printing and all over printing. Send us your art work in high resolution files and we will suggest the best printing technique to meet your requirements. We can offer water based ink, plastisol ink and discharge printing.

Please note the distinction between circular knit and flat knit. Flat knit is also referred to fully fashion knit or sweater fabric. We don't work with flat knit fabric. We also don't produce garments made with woven fabric.

Please contact us to inquire about fabrics for your designs. Also see our list of fabrics below to see if we already have it in stock.

We need to know your:

  • Knitting structure
  • Weight
  • Pantone Color
  • Finish

What is the 4-point fabric checking method?

The majority of fabric produced in the world has a fixed width of 1.8 meters. Therefore, when someone says I want to buy 400 meters of fabric, the width is assumed to be 1.8 meters. If the width is something other than 1.8 meters then this width must be clearly noted.

When it’s time to inspect fabric, you need to decide how many meters will be inspected. If the total fabric length (total lot) is less than 2,500 meters then you should inspect 20%. If it is more, then inspect 10%. Randomly choose rolls from the lot.

The goal of inspection is to find major defects. Each major defect will be assigned 1, 2, 3 or 4 points depending on the size and significance of the defect.

Provide a list of major fabric defects for the factory to use during inspection. Or ask the factory to provide their list and approve it.

Their are minor defects which need to be clearly defined by both parties. No penalty points are recorded or assigned for minor defects using the 4 point fabric inspection method.

Minor defects are defects that a customer will accept. Examples are physical debris that can be brushed off the fabric or a stain or tear within one centimeter of the fabrics’ edge. The edges are cut away and not used for making the finished garment.

Major woven fabric defects are:
  • slubs
 • holes
 • missing yarn
 • conspicuous yarn variation
 • end out
 • soiled yarn
 • wrong yarn
Major knitted fabric defects are:
  • mixed yarn
 • yarn variation
 • runner
 • needle line
 • barre
 • slub
 • hole
 • press off
Major dye or printing defects are:
  • out of register
 • dye spots
 • machine stop
 • color out
 • color smear
 • shading 

Some 4 point system rules:

  • No more than four penalty points can be assigned for any single defect.
  • No linear meter can contain more than four points of defects.
  • Defects must be documented by type and point count on the inspection report.

  • All defects must be marked with a sticker at the location of defect and with a marker at the fabric edge.
  • Fabric width must be measured and recorded three times. Once at the beginning, once in the middle and once at the end of the roll.
  • The actual roll length must be measured and recorded.
  • The length of each roll must be compared to the length mentioned on the supplier list. All discrepancies must be documented and reported to the fabric supplier for additional replacement to avoid shortage.
  • Fabric inspection is done in a suitable and safe environment with enough ventilation and proper lighting.
  • Fabric must be between 45-60 degree angles to the inspector.
  • Two cool white light F96 fluorescent bulbs should be installed one meter above the fabric. Back light can be used.
  • Fabric speed on the inspection machine must not be more than 15 meters per minute.
  • The approved standard of bulk dye lots must be available before starting inspection for assessing color, construction, finish and visual appearance.
  • Shade continuity within a roll must be checked between the center and outer edge, and at the beginning, middle and end of each roll. Any shade variations must be evaluated and documented.
  • Fabric must be evaluated for weight using a circular scissor and a calibrated scale.
  • If yarn dyed or printed fabrics are being inspected the repeat measurement must be done from the beginning, middle and end of selected rolls.

Point calculation and point limit for rolls and lot

In the 4 point system, the quality of fabric is evaluated by the number of major defect points per 100 m2 in the roll. The number of acceptable major defect points per 100 m2 ranges from 24 to 48 depending on the fabric type. For example, polyester fabric is acceptable if the number is 24 defect points per 100 m2 or less. The number is 48 for linen. Check with the factory what number they consider acceptable or tell them the number you will accept. Here is the formula for calculating the number of defect points in a roll:

Variables you need to measure and use in the formula are:
  • Total major defect points
 • Length of fabric in meters
 • Cuttable fabric width in millimeters

Once all the rolls are checked then you must calculate if the whole shipment is acceptable or not. Here is the formula for calculating the defect points for all the fabric. Keep in mind that most fabric comes in rolls that contain around 200 meters.

Variables you need to collect and use in the formula are:
  • Total average defect points per linear meter
 • Total meters inspected
 • Cuttable fabric width in millimeters

The number of acceptable major defect points per 100 m2 for the lot will range from 18 to 38 depending on the fabric type. Check with the factory what number they consider acceptable or tell them the number you will accept.

Color and shade inspection
Fabric must be checked for shading issues. Cut a swatch from every roll and tape them to a piece of cardboard perfectly aligned next to each other. In a light box, compare each piece to the others. Ensure the light box is placed in a dark place and shielded from ambient light. If there are any clear shading differences that are detectable with the naked eye then the roll is rejected.
