Question: How can I convert knitted fabric from meters to kg? Suppose someone ordered me to make 1700 meters fabric with 230gsm and 72" width then how can I convert it into kg. Please advice. ... asked by OCS reader.

You can convert fabric requirement from meter to kg (weight) provided you have information of the following parameters
• Fabric width
• Fabric weight per square unit (Normally fabric weight is represented per square meter in grams. (GSM) )
• Fabric weight that you want to convert in meters
Use following formula to know approx weight of the fabric roll.

Weight of a fabric roll is calculated using this formula

Areas of the fabric roll in open width X weight per square unit

Weight (in gram) = Fabric length (in meter) X fabric width (in meter) X Fabric GSM

In the example:
1. Fabric length is 1700 meters
2. Fabric width = 72 inch convert it into meters = (72 * 2.54) /100 =1.83 meters
3. Fabric GSM = 230 grams
Use above formula to find the result

Weight (in gram) = 1700 X 1.83 X 230 = 715,530 grams

Convert weight into Kg dividing it by 1000.
Therefore fabric weight will be 715.53 Kgs

Note: The above formula will give you approx weight of the fabric roll as density of the fabric throughout the roll length may change. Secondly if you include more than one roll in the calculation, width of the fabric may also vary roll to roll.
