Knitwit Double Knit Fabric Monaco is our classic best-selling double knit. An ideal heavier fabric suitable for hard-wearing pants and skirts as well as jackets. Cotton rich on the inside for comfort and polyester rich on the outside for wear.
Knitwit Monaco is low stretch, by which we mean less than 25%. If your pattern is sized for a medium stretch (25-35%) fabric, you can still use it, but you may need to cut out a size bigger.
Knitwit Monaco is a two way stretch, by which we mean the fabric stretches in 1 direction only, from selvedge to selvedge.

Sewing with Knit Fabrics
For knit fabrics, we use and recommend Gutermann Sew-All Thread, a top quality 100% polyester thread available in a huge range of colours to match your fabric.
You will need stretch needles for sewing knit fabrics. Use Schmetz Stretch needles – 75/11 on fine knit fabrics, and 90/14 on other knit fabrics.
Start each new project with a fresh needle, especially if the fabric contains cotton or wool. Blunt needles can leave holes on the stitching line.
Vliesofix Bondaweb Tape is a must if you want to get more professional looking hems and neck edges.
