This rich chocolate brown viscose and angora jersey fabric reflects the fact that after a long period in the cold, brown is back as a fashion colour. Not, of course, that we’ve ever discounted it – but it’s rather lovely to have a choice of such interesting shades and the excuse to showcase it.
What kind of fabric is this?
Our dark chocolate jersey has a high viscose content (64%) and along with a little nylon for durability, it’s softened with angora wool. That angora is very much evident in the gentle surface texture of this lovely single knit. This is a lighter-weight jersey but one with good opacity due to the fine yarn use in the knit.
What does this fabric feel like?
They don’t come softer than this rich brown viscose and angora jersey fabric. If you’re looking for a touch of luxury next to your skin – then welcome home.
How does this fabric move?
This rich cocoa viscose and angora jersey fabric has a softy elegant drape. It falls into beautiful folds and wafts a little in a breeze. There’s a good 40% stretch across its width with rather less than 10% mechanical stretch down its length. You can see how it stretches and moves in this video.
Will I need to line this fabric?
A t-shirt, top or tunic in this fabric won’t need lining; you’ll simply have to pay attention to the texture and fit of your undergarments. As a T-shirt dress or longer tunic you might want to consider wearing a slip underneath in order to smooth out lumps and bumps and to enable free movement against the body and across hosiery.
What can I make with this fabric?
Tops, t-shirts and tunics are going to be the obvious choices for our deep brown viscose and angora jersey fabric. It will cope nicely with ruching or a little negative ease. Longer tunics or gently draping dresses will also be options, as will lingerie.
This will be a fabulous fabric for winter layers. We think the simple lines of this ‘Esme’ Designer Top from Style Arc are a good example of the kind of garment for which this softest of soft jerseys would be perfect.
64% viscose, 24% nylon, 12% angora.
We recommend washing this jersey either by hand or on a ‘delicates’ machine cycle. Find out more on our About our fabric pages
