Sky Blue – Cotton Modal Jersey – 1/2 yard
These deadstock cotton/modal/lycra jerseys have it all: colourful shades, crisp drape & snappy recovery. I’m thinking close-fitting T, leggings or turtleneck! (The lycra content, amazing stretch and great recovery also makes ‘em great for activewear, underwear & bras.)
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!
- Colour: Sky blue with a subtle sheen
- Tone: Cool
- Stretch percentage: 75% widthwise stretch, 50% lengthwise
- Fabric Content: Cotton/modal/lycra blend – my guess is about 50/50 cotton & modal with a good amount of lycra as it has a great recovery
- Opacity: Opaque
- Weight: Lightweight with a crisp drape
- Width: 64”
- Source: Deadstock
Care: Wash on warm & hang to dry (continual machine drying can weaken the lycra fibres!). Easy peasy.
