Large-Scale Floral – Rayon/Spandex Knit – 1/2 yard

$5.50

A large-scale floral knit that acts as a perfect stand in for actual flowers until spring shows up.

This rayon knit is:

  • Super drapey with a good snappy recovery
  • Deadstock from fabric designer Kathy Davis
  • Extra soft with a high-quality matte look 

 

Details

  • Colour: Large-scale floral print (repeating pattern is about 7” x7”) with burn orange, teal & raspberry
  • Tone: Warm
  • Stretch percentage: 50% widthwise stretch, 80% lengthwise stretch
  • Fabric Content: 97% rayon, 3% Lycra
  • Opacity: Quite opaque – some shadow will show through when held up to direct light, but you could definitely feel confident making a tight-fitting garment with this.
  • Drape: Fluid drape
  • Weight: Lightweight
  • Width: 60"
  • Source: Kathy Davis deadstock
  • Care: Wash on cool & tumble dry low. Use a veeery low iron on this.

 

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!
