Classy Crepe Fabrics at Croft Mill
The term 'crepe' is given to fabrics that have a distinctive puckered or crinkled appearance. Crepe can be made from all different kinds of natural fibres including silk, wool and cotton as well as synthetic fibres like polyester. As there are so many different kinds of crepe fabrics, they can be used to create an array of items from garments like dresses, trousers and tops to soft furnishings like pillows and curtains. They are also great for lots of different craft applications.
One of the most beautiful and luxurious types of crepe fabric is Crepe de Chine, which is French for 'Crepe from China'. These delightful fabrics are made using tightly-twisted yarns. Crepe de Chine fabrics do not have the puckered appearance that is typical of standard crepe fabrics, instead boasting a beautifully-smooth matte finish that displays slight pebbling.
