Marylou Marsh adds that these striped fabrics are "not for the fashion wallflower." Indeed, she continues, "stripes can be a great way to get noticed. Stripes can be used as a accent to accentuate a classic design, or for a more forward and fun full garment. Stripes are also fantastic for babies' and men's tees, or women's tank tops. I find that a narrow silhouette compliments a stripe better." She adds that the 1x1 Rib Knit fabric "is 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."
Many people choose this material for twinsets, athletic attire, all sorts of baby clothes, and so much more. (How much more, you ask? Well, there's dresses and skirts, pajamas, nursing tops, sexy dresses ... is that enough?)
The fabric has a bit more than 50% stretch coupled with good rebound for maximum comfort, and the charcoal stripes are about 3/8" wide next to a 1/8" natural stripe background.
Stripes run from selvage to selvage. At approximately 10.4 ounces per linear yard, the fabric weighs around 6.5 ounces per square yard.
Like all our dyed fabrics, this one too is colored using low-impact dyes. Knit in the USA, from USA-grown 100% organic cotton.
