We’re continuing to add to our popular collection of high-quality cotton twills and drills. This classic stone cotton twill fabric is a colourway that will work with pale neutrals such as ivory and white, as well as pastels and many more vibrant colours. The shade of stone is quite a cool one which will alter subtly according to the light. If precise shade is important then don’t forget our free sample service. What to make? The list is long and includes summer or cross-season crops – either fitted or wide legged; casual or utility jackets and more besides..
What kind of fabric is this?
Our classic stone 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 stone cotton twill fabric has a soft handle. On the ‘right’ side, the surface has been very slightly brushed – not so much as to change the nature of the fabric but sufficient to give it a soft handle. The reverse is very smooth and will be 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 its softness and pliability, 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 timeless classic stone green cotton twill fabric is perfect for casual skirts, jean-style and chore or utility jackets as well as jean-style and fitted trousers. We’ve found quite the treasure-trove of trousers and shorts at Itch to Stitch patterns – including their ‘Upland Trousers’ which would be perfect for this mid-weight cotton twill. We like the neat waistline – and think you could try cropping them for summer wear too.
As a plant-based fibre, cotton is a natural product that can be grown easily. Cotton garments tend to be strong and durable and can be recycled. However current production levels of cotton will be increasingly difficult to sustain, especially when chemicals and large amounts of water are used to process cotton fabrics.
