Wonderful slubbed open-weave knit with a faintly irregular stripe design in 2 beautiful color ways – blue, aqua, and yellow or red, dark pink and light pink on white. Perfect for summer tops, beach wraps, gauzy drapes, light cardigans, etc.!
I easily stretched 2″ to 3″ – most stretch along the cross grain (from side to side, not parallel with the selvedge), along the grain I stretched 2″ to 2.5″, so this would be considered a 4-way stretch
This fabric is very lightweight, nicely draped, faintly textured, and a little coarse to the hand (more textured than rough). Does not have the stretch recovery of ITY and similar knits, so best to use it in loose, slouchy designs.
Very easy to work with!
Sewing with knits can seem intimidating, but they are pretty easy to work with, and once you find your grove, you won’t want to stop – they’re so easy to sew and fit and flatter! Just use a knit needle in your machine, a slightly longer stitch length than usual, and go slowly until you’re comfortable – being sure that your marks and notches stay lined up!
100% Linen, 54″ wide, price per yard.
