ITY stands for interlock twist yarn. It is a method of putting a twist in yarn used for knit fabrics resulting in a more natural elasticity and a soft feel inside and out. ITY knits are easy to sew with and popular for tops, dresses, skirts and flowy pants. They come in a wide array of prints and solids. Great for traveling because it doesn't crease! - FabricMart

These videos are great.  I learned to sew before knits became  popular and also before these wonderful sewing machines were made.  So wonderful to learn all these tips I never knew.  There was no public Internet for learning in the "old" days.
