Width: 60 inches
4-way stretch: 70% crossgrain, 50% parallel to selvedge
Time to stock up on basics! This lightweight designer deadstock* hacci sweater knit has the 4-way stretch and recovery you're looking for to make a bodysuit. The sleek Megan Nielsen Rowan or the draped Seamwork Angela are perfect options. Not into bodysuits? We love knits with a twist! If you haven't checked out Meg's Sew Twists and Ties, you really must. It's a yearly challenge in January to sew patterns with twists and ties, and she's already compiled lots of pattern inspiration! The Aomori Twist Top by Papercut is a favorite. What about a super soft Friday Pattern Company Adrienne blouse? Or maybe a drapey cardigan like the Laurelhurst by Straight Stitch? With 8 colors in stock ("fern" green shown) at 60 inches wide, you can make one for every day of the week with leftover to make matching infinity scarves for friends!
A note about care: hacci knits should be washed in cold water on a gentle setting and allowed to air dry for best results.
*Many fabrics in the Sewing Studio are "deadstock" fabrics from the fashion industry, and fiber content is sometimes best educated guess. Sourcing in general is less predictable during COVID-19, and it's very rare to restock a dead stock fabric during normal circumstances. We source and purchase only what we feel to be of the highest quality for our customers. Due to setting fluctuations on monitors, photo color accuracy cannot be guaranteed.
