We’ve unearthed a fabulous range of cotton twills in colours perfect for a year-round wardrobe. This classic cotton twill fabric is a warm, creamy shade of stone, similar to a cup of milky latte as its name suggests. It will complement clean, fresh neutrals as well as duck-egg blues and rich purples. Think simple jeans, shape-holding cropped trousers and casual jackets.
What kind of fabric is this?
Our creamy latte cotton twill fabric has a classic diagonal twill weave. We’d describe it as a medium-weight twill, with excellent opacity for its weight. This is a 100% cotton fabric – there’s a very little mechanical ease across its width and on the bias but the give is minimal.
What does this fabric feel like?
Although a robust fabric, our latte cotton twill fabric has a crisp handle. The reverse is a smooth drill weave and will be perfectly comfortable next to the skin.
How does this fabric move?
This is a very pliable fabric which isn’t in the least bulky. However despite that fact, it’s not a draping fabric. It holds a shape and falls into angled folds as you can see from this video.

Will I need to line this fabric?
A pair of trousers or casual jacket in this fabric won’t need lining. However a dress, skirt or more formal jacket could be lined in order to add shape and structure; also to enable ease of movement when being worn or when you’re taking it on and off.
What can I make with this fabric?
Our creamy latte cotton twill fabric is perfect for casual skirts and jean-style jackets as well as jean-style and fitted trousers. We’ve got our eye on these new ‘Albors’ cargo pants from Pauline Alice patterns – this fabric will hit the sweet spot between upmarket yet laid-back style and practicality.
