You'll choose this rib knit for adult attire like twinsets, tank tops, athletic clothes, leggings, and more, but it's also great for kids' and toddlers' outfits and even for baby clothes and blankets (either single or double-layer). Designer Marylou Marsh describes rib knit fabrics as "good for any body-conscious design and fit, because the fabric has recovery without the element of lycra. It's one of my favorite fabrics to work with because you can tailor it, but it's also very comfortable and easy to wear and design."
At 9.0 ounces per linear yard, this fabric weighs 5.6 ounces per square yard and has approximately 75% stretch. It's a tubular fabric, which means it's either 29.5" wide uncut or 59" wide if you choose to cut it open. Knit in the US from American-grown cotton.
