Heavier jersey fabrics are easier to sew and make more structured garments. Heavier jersey materials are Ponte Roma and scuba, they are a double jersey fabric and are more stable.

Viscose jersey fabric has the best draping qualities and is wonderful to wear. It breathes like cotton so you stay cool. Polyester jersey materials can be slippery to sew but it will hang well and doesn't need ironing.

Our cotton jersey fabric comes in a vast array of weights; French terry jersey to fine t-shirting. As you can see, a lot to choose from and all these come in a range of plains and patterns. Please check out each fabric for more information.

There are three main types of jersey fabric: interlock knit, rib knit, and single knit.

Interlock Knit: Interlock knit is the most common type of jersey fabric and is usually made from 100% cotton or a cotton-polyester blend. It has two layers that are connected together with a knitted stitch pattern which gives it extra strength and stability compared to other jersey fabrics. Interlock knit fabrics are ideal for t-shirts, leggings, dresses, and skirts because they have good stretch recovery and hold their shape well after washing. 

Rib Knit: Rib knit dress fabric has alternating ribs on both sides which give it more elasticity than other types of jersey fabric. This makes it ideal for items like cuffs and neckbands as the ribbing will provide them with extra support while still allowing them to stretch without losing their shape over time. Another advantage of rib knit fabric is that it creates less bulk when sewn into garments because the ribs add texture without adding weight or thickness. 

Single Knit: Single knit dress fabrics are made from one layer of yarn that has been knitted in one direction only. This makes them lightweight but also somewhat delicate as they can easily tear if pulled too hard or stretched too far during sewing or wearing. While single knit fabrics aren’t as strong as interlock or rib knits, they do have their uses such as making lightweight tops and scarves due to their lightness and breathability compared to other fabrics.
