Best Answer

Interlock fabric is a variation of rib knit construction. Similar to a Jersey knit except both front and back of the fabric look identical. Double knit construction makes this a thicker knit fabric. Interlock is the tightest weave, gives the smoothest surface and the finest hand. The fabric is extremely soft, firm and absorbent.

Woven fabric tends to have a fairly stable size, so you can measure it by length.

However, in most fabric stores, you will purchase both woven and knitted fabrics by the yard (length).
