Knit de knit (kDk) is a special technique of creating a textured yarn. Whereas special machines are used with other texturing techniques, kDk relies on ring knitting and heat setting.
Firstly, the yarn is knitted into a tube on a knitting machine. Once the fabric is finished, it gets steam treated (or dyed, depending on the exact method), which fixates the crimps/loops. Afterwards, the farbic get unknitted, creating a yarn with the typical loops as can be seen in the picture on the left (desktop version) / above (mobile version).
