Today I'm going to share with you a very very important topic which is related to Yarn Dyed Fabric. My this post is only based on knitted fabric not woven and other's fabrications.
When we got a work order of garments item from the buyer at first we collect the fabric to make the garments. We could purchase this fabric directly from the fabric supplier or also could make the fabrics in our own factory. In both the way we need to produce the fabric at first. The main raw materials of fabric is yarn.
In a general way at first we collect the gray yarn from yarn factory to produce the fabric. The factory which made the yarn from cotton are called as Spinning factory. Then from this gray yarn we knit the fabric by knitting machine. As this machine worked as a circle so we called this machine as circular knit machine. The company which made (knit) the fabric by circular knit machine are called as Knitting Factory.
As at first we produce the fabric from gray yarnso we called this fabric as gray fabric. Then we dye the fabric in any color as per requirement of color. The company which dyes the gray fabric are called as dyeing factory. After dye the fabric we called this fabric as solid color fabric or solid color dyed fabric.
But sometimes after collecting the yarn we direct dye the yarn before knit the fabric. We called this dyeing process as yarn dyeing. And the factory which dyes the yarn are called as yarn dyeing factory. In our country there is a very small number of factories which dye the yarn. It is a very costly project.
After dye the yarn we knit the fabric with this dyed yarn. As this fabric is made from dyed yarn so we called this fabric as yarn dyed fabrics.
Today I will mainly discuss with you about this yarn dyeing and yarn dyed fabric knitting process. We can produce various kinds of fabric by this dyed yarn.

What is yarn Dye-
In the general sense dyeing of gray yarn we can call "Yarn Dye". But many times we received some order of striped T-shirt or Polo shirt or any other garments item. This stripe can be made byprints or dyed yarn. If buyer asked for dyed yarn then we dye the yarn and knit the fabric with this dyed yarn. In textile sector we called this yarn dyeing process as yarn dye. Many times we also dye the yarn for some other purpose other than body stripe, it can be for a fancy yarn dyed fabric also.
How the yarn dyed fabric is made
For normal knit fabrication we put the cone of gray yarn on the feeder and then knit the fabric. But when put the cone of colored yarn on the feeder (as per our requirement) and produce the fabric with these colored yarns then we called this fabric as yarn dyed fabric.
What is yarn dyed fabric
The fabric which is made from dyed yarn are called as yarn dyed fabric. This yarn dyed fabric will not be always striped, it can be solid color also. We can use all the feeder yarn dyed, also we can use some specific yarn dyed feeder to knit the fabric. Actually how many yarn dyed feeder will be used, its depends on the fabric requirements. Such as when we produce a yarn dyed polo shirt that times we also knit the flat knit solid color collar with dyed yarn with a view to mach the color with body fabric. Many times I saw some supplier try to dyeing the (grey) collar and cuff, which color is related with body stripe to reduce the cost. I request to all of you please don't try to do this, better carefully include the yarn dyeing price before quote the price to buyer. Sometimes buyer ask for tipping collar with solid color polo shirt, in this case used good quality yarn to avoid color migration problem
