This dramatic, stormy green and teal viscose jersey fabric is just the kind of thing we delight in. It’s a fabulous draping single knit jersey, with a print design which we think will bring your winter wardrobe to life. The swooping spirals and curves are inspired by stormy seas with bolts of gold popping out from a melée of green, teal blue, tobacco and toning shades of all these colours. The print pattern has been applied in three vertical strips across the width of the fabric (see our horizontal image with a ruler for the middle band) but these breaks in such a sweeping pattern aren’t noticeable in a garments with the kind of drape and movement that this fabric is destined for.
What kind of fabric is this?
Our gold, teal and green viscose jersey fabric is a draping single-knit composed primarily of viscose, with 4% elastane. It’s a good 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 50% 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 moody green and teal 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 may need a half-slip to enable this fabric to move across hosiery.
What can I make with this fabric?
Tops, tunics and dresses 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 or gathers and requiring movement will work better with this fabric since it doesn’t have the capacity to hold a shape.
The ‘Wanda’ Wrap Dress from Wardrobe by Me would be a fabulous way of showcasing this amazing print design.
