Designer Marylou Marsh loves this french terry, which she describes as "a great fabric because on one side it has the nubby texture of a sweater, and on the reverse it is smooth like a heavy jersey. It is a great fabric to tailor, as it holds a shape well. It's excellent for jackets and hoodies because it is quite warm, working like a thermal because of the layer of trapped air. It also has wool-like qualities, which make it great for skirts and warm casual pants. It's like a sweater/wool hybrid, without the itch!" This is a wonderful fabric for clothing the whole family, from casually sophisticated cardigans to little kids' gym suits and everything in-between.
You'll find this material a much-needed addition to so many wardrobes. The intense hue is perfect for fall and winter wear while also adding an unexpected touch of color during the other seasons. It layers splendidly, too.
As with all of our dyed fabrics, this one is colored using low-impact fiber-reactive dyes. A square yard weighs approximately 12 ounces.
Knit in the US, from US-grown organic cotton.
The color of the fabric has changed slightly from the previous roll. If you received a swatch before October 2012, please request a new swatch.
