Lacoste is a type of suspended knitted fabric with a special structure similar to honeycomb, which is formed with the lock and needle sequences, especially with loop and hanger movements in single-plate knitting machines. Lacoste is widely preferred for tightly looped t-shirts and sports tops, which are generally produced from mercerized cotton or polyester/cotton blend yarn. It was named after a French company with a crocodile coat of arms. This type of looped fabric, known from tennis shirts, is also known as single needle pique in the market. Flexibility can be added to the fabric with elastane threads attached to the machine during knitting.
