This ribbing can be used on it's own for cozy sweaters, sweatpants, or as a ribbing for necklines and hems. Either side can be used - one side showing more dark coffee, the other showing cafe au lait. This ribbing is very stretchy - for slouchy garments cut as the pattern requires, however, for more of a fitted look, pattern pieces may need to be cut slightly narrower. We recommend testing before sewing the final garment.
Note this ribbing is tubular, meaning it is manufactured on a tubular knitting machine; you will need to cut a selvedge for it to lie flat for cutting.

Fabric is priced and sold by the 1/4 metre. We cut multiple 1/4 metres continuously. For example; 2 units is 1/2m, 3 units is 3/4m, 4 units is a full metre, 5 units is 1.25m. A single 1/4 metre will be cut as a fat quarter, unless you request a skinny quarter. Fat Quarters are half the width of the fabric x 0.5m, whereas Skinny Quarters are the full width of the fabric x 0.25m. We do this so you can order just as much fabric as you need, to decrease fabric wastage.
While we make every effort to ensure the accuracy of our photos, please be aware that we cannot control for
