Black - Organic Cotton Stretch Poplin – 1/2 yard

$ 7.99 CAD

Woven with twice the yarn as other shirting-weight cottons, this GOTS-certified organic poplin is soft to the touch while retaining a beautiful, crip & floaty drape. It's one of my favourite fabrics for sewing statement sleeves, boxy shirtdresses and classic button-ups, with a bit of stretch for comfort thrown in. 



  • Colour: Black
  • Tone: Neutral
  • Fabric Content: 97% cotton, 3% spandex
  • Stretch percentage: 20% widthwise stretch
  • Opacity: Mostly opaque – some shadow will show when held up to direct light, as with all white fabrics 
  • Drape: Crisp and floaty
  • Weight: Lightweight, 130 gsm / 3.8 oz
  • Width: 57”
  • Source: Deadstock, by way of the NYC garment district
  • Care:  Be sure to prewash, as cotton will shrink! Wash on cool, tumble dry on permanent press (or lower) and iron with a low-to-medium iron. Hang to dry to better protect the spandex content of your finished garment.

*We recommend taking a screenshot of this page to capture the care instructions, as listings often disappear when fabric goes out of stock! 

🌱Sustainability: Our organic poplin is made with 97% GOTS-certified organic cotton.

Non-organic cotton production is responsible for 25% of the world’s insecticide use and more than 10% of pesticide use – pretty staggering for just one crop. Traditional cotton is also incredibly water-hungry – it takes 20,000 litres of water to produce just 2 pounds of cotton. Organic cotton uses (on average) 30% less water – reserving more natural resources for the inhabitants of the often water-challenged countries where cotton is harvested.
