We’re constantly seeking out prints that veer away from the classic floral, lovely though they may be. This grey and rust printed viscose jersey fabric is a wild combination of animal print and rich rust and ochre blooms. We’re particularly keen on the soft violet tint of the grey animal print background; the perfect colour complement to those rich autumnal colours in the unconventional floral element.
What kind of fabric is this?
Our grey and rust printed viscose jersey fabric is a draping single-knit composed primarily of viscose, with 5% elastane. We’d describe it as a medium-weight single knit – there’s a real sense of substance to it once you have a metre or more in your hand. There’s about a 60% stretch across the width of this fabric but only around 35% down its length.
What does this fabric feel like?
This jersey has a soft, very gentle handle. It will be very comfortable to wear next to the skin and it’s breathable too.
How does this fabric move?
Our left-field grey and rust printed viscose jersey fabric is very much a draping knit with a fluid movement. You can see how it moves and stretches in this video.

Will I need to line this fabric?
You won’t need to line a shirt, top or tunic made from this fabric, however a dress may require a bodice lining for structure depending on your pattern design. Unless you’re wearing it over bare legs, then you’ll need a half-slip to enable this fabric to move against your body.
What can I make with this fabric?
Tops, tunics and dresses are all options for this distinctive grey and rust printed viscose jersey fabric. You’ll need to find a pattern intended for a knit fabric; garments with more draping designs will work particularly well, as will those which incorporate elements of ruching and negative ease. This selection of simple tunics in Vogue pattern 8952 is the perfect opportunity to show off the print pattern as well as the drape and movement of this lovely jersey.
