This is a thicker, knitted fabric with a smooth front and a roughened back. The fabric is often described as fleece. This is actually a misnomer because real fleece is a non-woven, it is a layer of fibres that are cohesive by the messy structure in which the fibres are laid. The yellow household cloth is a well-known example, you can tear it apart. That's a lot more difficult with sweater fabric.
The fabric is supple and soft and because it is a knitted fabric, it is slightly elastic in the width direction. Sweater fabric is often used for hoodies, sweatshirts and sweatpants, both for adults and children. But also scarves, blankets and baby clothes. We sell this fabric in seven different colours; natural, off-white, optical white, potter's clay, dark blue, anthracite and black. With wrist fabric in matching colour.
This knitted fabric is heavily roughened on both sides and feels extremely soft. It has the softness of cotton wool. It is a suitable fabric for linings or interlinings for jackets and children's jackets, cardigans, scarves, mittens and baby blankets. This fabric has a shrinkage of 5-10% on the first wash.
