This item needs further information[edit]

I came to this article randomly and am amazed that a textile that is so important has such little information so far. If jersey fabric is used to make T-shirts and so many other items of clothing then it is possibly the most important textile on the planet. I would like to see more info on the history of how it is made, how it is woven, who makes it and links to articles on fabric manufacture and the machines used over time. These links are an example of further info[1] [2] Many of the Google search results for jersey knit use this Wikipedia entry as a source so it makes it even more useful to expand the article. I have an engineering background and so am naturally inquisitive as to how things are made. Andrew ranfurly (talk) 19:01, 21 December 2017 (UTC)
