What is differential feed

An overlocker without differential feed is as much use as a sewing machine without a needle..!
Knitted fabrics tend to stretch when sewn whilst woven fabrics can contract. Differential feed means that the layers of fabric are fed through evenly which helps prevent knitted fabrics from puckering and woven or sheer fabrics from wavering. It is also very effective for gathering.
