This delightfully soft, solid black cotton jersey fabric is the latest in our range of certified organic cotton jersey fabrics. They’re versatile fabrics, adaptable for use across your wardrobe.
What kind of fabric is this?
As with its sibling colourways, this is a versatile single-knit jersey fabric. It’s solidly into the ‘medium-weight’ single-knit jersey category and with a close knit, has very good opacity for its weight.
What does this fabric feel like?
Our organic black cotton jersey fabric feels soft and very smooth to the touch. As you’d expect, it’s beautifully comfortable next to the skin.
How does this fabric move?
This isn’t a draping fabric; rather, our black cotton jersey fabric as something of a swing to it and falls into soft folds. It has about a 20% two-way mechanical stretch (that means the stretch comes from the knit structure, rather than any spandex content.) You can see how it moves and stretches in this video.
Will I need to line this fabric?
The more casual garments that this fabric is likely to be used for means that you won’t need to line a top or tunic, nor a t-shirt style dress if it was being worn casually over bare skin.
What can I make with this fabric?
Style Arc have lots of patterns for layering jersey fabrics – from relaxed wrap cardigans to tunics and t-shirts in different styles. One of our favourites is their ‘Adele’ Top which we think would be a fabulous foundation layering piece in this organic black cotton jersey fabric.
