Knitwit Jacquard Knit Carla Red Black is an exclusive import from Italy. It is a versatile, thicker fabric suitable for jackets, cardigans and skirts.
It is an easy fabric to handle and sew, and using the reverse of the fabric creates an interesting contrast in a garment.
The fabric is strong enough to make, for example, a straight skirt without lining.
Medium stretch, by which we mean 25% stretch. If your pattern is sized for a low stretch (less then 25%) fabric, you can still use it. You may need to take the garment in on the side seams after you have tried it on.
Two way stretch, by which we mean the fabric stretches in one direction only, from selvedge to selvedge.
Blunt needle warning – please remember to start every garment with a new stretch needle. Use 75/11 for fine fabrics, and 90/14 for heavier fabrics.
If you need to, brush up on sewing with jersey knit fabrics.
