Normally you will get price list for knit fabric in Rate/Kg. But sometimes you may need to tell fabric price per meter for customer requirement. Do you know how to find that?

 Question: I am facing problem in this calculation. The fabric price is given Rs. 600 per KG of Knit Fabric. And the consumption is 0.20 kgs and GSM is 240. How do I calculate fabric price per meter. Please advice. ... asked by OCS reader

Knitted fabric is sold in weight (Kgs) and woven fabrics in linear length (meters or yards). Price for knits fabric is quoted per kg. To calculate fabric price in meter you need to find how many meters of fabric make one kg weight for that particular fabric. Following formula is used to convert kg to meter for knitted fabric.

 Weight (in gram) = Fabric length (in meter) X fabric width (in meter) X Fabric GSM
Read this post to know how this formula is derived.

You need following information to calculate fabric price per meter for knits.

• Fabric weight - that is 1 Kg (as you have price per kg)
• Fabric GSM - 240 grams
• Fabric width - Not available in your question. For example I am considering fabric width is 1 meter (for calculation purpose)

With above details calculate fabric length of 1 Kg fabric.

Fabric length= (1 X 1000) /(240 *1) in meter = 4.17 meter
Therefore fabric price Rs. 600 per Kg is equivalent to 4.17 meters of fabric.

Fabric price per meter is Rs. 143.88

Note: In this example, Indian currency (Rs.) is used.

P.S. The above method is for your information purpose only. The conversion value shows approximate value. It may vary depending on fabric width and fabric weight (density). Before using this method please cross-check with a physical sample.
