This abstract black and rust viscose jersey fabric checks all our autumnal boxes. It’s a lovely draping single knit jersey, with a striking yet elegant print design which we think will elevate your winter wardrobe. The black and rust elements in the print design make for a vibrant contrast while the ivory background lifts the design and brings some light without compromising the intensity of the print.
What kind of fabric is this?
Our ivory, black and rust viscose jersey fabric is a draping single-knit composed primarily of viscose, with 5% elastane. It’s a good light-to-medium-weight single-knit with plenty of weight in a metre or two. It is a closely-knit fabric, this fact, as well as the print pattern, mean that it has very good opacity for its weight. There’s about a 60% stretch across the width of this fabric and around 40% down its length.
What does this fabric feel like?
This is a beautifully-smooth and soft jersey. It will be very comfortable to wear next to the skin and it’s breathable too.
How does this fabric move?
Our sophisticated black and rust 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, a dress will need a half-slip to enable this fabric to move against your body.
What can I make with this fabric?
Tops and tunics are very much the forte of this black and rust 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. Dresses are an option too, although ones with plenty of drape and some volume will work better with this fabric since it doesn’t have the capacity to hold a shape. The ‘Isla’ Top from Tessuti would be a great way of making the most of the print pattern as well as the movement and drape of this fabric.
Viscose fibres are produced using cellulose which has been extracted from wood. As such it is a plant-based fabric, however unless stated otherwise, chemicals will have been used to produce the viscose yarns used in textile production.
