Knitwit Stresa Italian Knit Black Charcoal is an exclusive import – a beautiful warm fabric to make stylish coats, jackets or capes.
Medium stretch, by which we mean 25%-35% stretch. Two way stretch, by which we mean the fabric stretches in 1 direction only, from selvedge to selvedge.
If you use a pattern such as KwikSew 3977, you can make the jacket in an hour or less!
You can sew this fabric on a machine, but it is even easier on an overlocker, as you can just overlock the edges and avoid having to turn them under and make a hem or facing.
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.
