Our silver grey ponte Roma jersey fabric another one of our doubleknit jersey fabrics that aren’t quite what they seam – but in the best possible way! We frequently find that our grey and charcoal jersey fabrics are offered in a ‘marled’ knit – that is, combining a number of different shades of yarn that add depth to what might otherwise be a very flat colour.
In the case of our silver grey ponte Roma jersey fabric complexity is provided through the use of marled pale and silver grey yarns in a fine stripe that serves to lift this fabric to another level. Our silver grey ponte Roma jersey fabric is a medium-weight doubleknit which achieves a balance between softness of handle, stretch, structure and drape. It moves with elegance with a resilient but not excessive stretch of about 15%, mostly across its width as you can see in this video.
We think that this silver grey ponte Roma jersey fabric is as versatile as you’d expect from a classic doubleknit. It would be perfect as a dress, top, tunic or relaxed trousers. As with our other ponte Roma jersey fabrics it also works wonderfully for layering – and being a neutral will work with lots of other colours, from charcoal and black, to ivory, with pastels and vibrant pinks and teals in between.
We’ve put together a ‘Coatigans’ Pinterest board with some pattern ideas that you might want to consider for this or other knitted or wool fabrics. These are simple, often unlined, relaxed, wrapping and draping garments, perfect for putting on and setting aside as you move in and out of the house or as the temperature changes. They’re both practical and elegant – more so than the the title ‘coatigan’ might suggest!
If layering’s your thing, then you might want to try this ‘Esmé’ Maxi cardigan from Named Clothing for our silver grey ponte Roma jersey fabric. We think it would be wonderful over a tunic in one of our other ponte Roma jersey colour options.
