program Cotton GSM™

ARKET differentiates the number of knitting needles and yarn counts used to create a core collection of jersey materials in four different weights. GSM, a standard measurement of fabric weights in textile trading, stands for grams per square metre and indicates the material’s density. A high-GSM fabric is typically knitted with shorter loops and is thus thicker and more compact, while a lower GSM denotes a finer and more loosely knitted material.

The customised machine settings yield a variety of knitted fabrics characterised by firmness and balance. The resulting array of fabric weights allows garment patterns to be replicated in varying textures for different applications.

Yarn spinning

A yarn consists of several strands of fibres – either staple fibres or long, continuous filaments – twisted together. The amount of twist impacts the feature of the yarn. A lower degree of twist produces soft and lustrous yarns while high-twist yarns are stronger and more compact; an even tighter twist produces crinkled crêpe yarn. The oldest and most widespread method of yarn manufacturing is spinning yarn from staple fibres, such as cotton (as opposed to filaments, such as silk or synthetic fibres). The five processing steps – opening and blending, carding or combing, drawing, drafting and spinning – convert raw fibres to airy and rope-like ‘slivers’ that are twisted and spun into yarn, and wound up on cones ready for knitting or weaving machines.
