Navy – 100% Cotton French Terry – 1/2 yard


This breezy, 100% cotton french terry feels like your favourite lived-in sweater (without the holes around neckline & questionable college football insignia.)

This french terry:

-is structured, crisp & 100% cotton

-has a flat loop texture on the back

-is perfect for a classic structured tee or casual sweater


  • Colour: Navy
  • Tone: Neutral
  • Stretch percentage: 30% widthwise and lengthwise. There isn’t a ton of recovery as it’s 100% cotton, without any spandex content – something to keep in mind when you’re planning a pattern
  • Fabric Content: 100% cotton
  • Opacity: Opaque
  • Drape: Crisp with structure
  • Weight: Mediumweight
  • Width: 60
  • Source: Deadstock
  • Care: Wash on warm or cool, tumble dry on medium, iron with steam. Cotton shrinks quite a bit, so be sure to prewash!


Sustainability: Deadstock is high-quality fabric that went unused by the mill or designer who ordered it – be it a big-name fashion brand, fabric mill or film & TV set. (Kind of like browsing the fashion industry's fabric stash.) Buying deadstock supports a circular textile economy, avoids net new production of acrylic fibres & diverts high-quality textiles away from landfills. Pretty cool!
