This glowing ochre organic french terry fabric is a wonderfully-versatile cotton jersey fabric. French terry fabrics are as easy to work with as they are to wear; we think they’re set to become familiar friends in our wardrobes. This is a beautiful-quality fabric with a smooth and refined knit on the right side that belies the likely casual destiny of this classic jersey.
What kind of fabric is this?
Our ochre organic french terry fabric is a loop-backed jersey knit, made from organic cotton and with just enough elastane for a resilient stretch-and-return.
What does this fabric feel like?
The fine yarns used in this french terry means that the ‘right’ side has a beautifully-smooth feel; the looped inside has a soft and comforting texture.
How does this fabric move?
Our ochre organic french terry fabric isn’t a fluid knit – but it hangs and swings with character and falls into softly-angled folds. It has approximately 30% stretch-and-return across its width and length. You can see how it drapes and stretches in this video.

Will I need to line this fabric?
Our ochre organic french terry fabric has great opacity; tops, hoodies, tunics and even trousers won’t need lining. This is a fabric that will be so comfortable next to the skin and which won’t embarrass you either.
What can I make with this fabric?
Tops, tunics, hoodies, sweater dresses – the list is endless! You could try a simple pair of pull-on lounge trousers, cropped with a slight flare – you wouldn’t even need to hem them – just let the bottoms roll up slightly for a casual finish (this fabric won’t fray!)
The ‘Como Knit Pant’ pattern from Style Arc is the perfect trouser option for this ochre organic french terry fabric. We love the length options in a trouser that takes ‘laid-back’ as seriously as we do!
