This fabric is a soft, comfortable knitted fabric made primarily of cotton, with the addition of elastane for stretch recovery.
With less stretch than a single jersey it’s easy to sew, even for a beginner… It’s also easy to care for, being wrinkle resistant and machine washable.
French Terry can either be loop or brush backed. This is the brushed version, also known as Stretch Sweat, which features a cosy brushed back. The result is a fabric that is smooth and jersey-like on the outside and soft and snuggly on the inside. Slightly thicker than the loop back french terry the brushed back adds volume and warmth without adding too much bulk. It is also known as 'Summer Sweat' fabric.
