Description

Knitwit Printed Cotton Jersey Bentley Floral is  a new addition to our range of beautiful cotton jersey digital prints with brilliant colours. Lightweight, cool to wear, and ideal for warm days. It is also a good trans-seasonal fabric as it would make a comfortable long sleeve top as well.

This natural fibre fabric has OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certification that the fabric is harmless to health, and adheres to prescribed limit values for potentially harmful chemicals.

Medium stretch, by which we mean 35% stretch. If your pattern is sized for a low stretch fabric (less then 35% stretch), you can still use it, but you may need to take the garment in.

Four way stretch, by which we mean the fabric stretches in 2 directions: from selvedge to selvedge and also lengthways. If your pattern is sized for a two way stretch fabric, you can still use it.

Cotton 95%/Spandex 5%    150cm wide      Light weight – 190gsm        Country of origin – Turkey

Sewing with Jersey Knit Fabrics

Pre-wash before cutting out and allow up to 5% shrinkage.

For jersey 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.

[Spandex is the preferred name of spandex fibre in the US. It is known in Europe as elastane, and in the UK and Australia as Lycra®. Spandex is actually an anagram of expands.]
