Black – Brushed Back Scuba Knit – 1/2 yard
Had to dive deep to find this scuba knit (see what I did there?) but it was so worth it – scuba (a type of double knit fabric that is similar to ponte) is the perfect pair for a high-waisted pencil skirt or structured dress, and this particular knit is super high-quality. Smooth on one side and snuggly & cozy on the other, it’ll be the perfect partner for all your winter sewing plans. (Note: The black is softer than the navy on its brushed side!)
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!
