True Bias—is obtained by folding the on-grain fabric diagonally so the crosswise threads are parallel to the selvage. True bias exists at any 45° angle to any straight edge of fabric whose lengthwise and crosswise threads are perpendicular.
Bolt—is the packaged state of fabric. Fabric is sold to a store either folded or rolled lengthwise on a cardboard or metal form. You may find that the selvages are found on the top and bottom of the bolt or both selvages at one end and a fold at the other end. Knitted fabrics are structured of interlocking loops of yarn. They come either flat or tubular. Tubular knits can be cut open along one edge.
Wales or Ribs—are columns of loops running parallel to the long measurement of a knitted fabric. They correspond to the lengthwise grain of a woven fabric.
Courses—are the crosswise rows of loops of a knitted fabric.
