French terry is my absolute favourite sweatshirt fabric. It's cozy and warm, but not super fleecy so I don't overheat. It's soft, it has good drape without being clingy, and it stretches nicely as you move.
If you tried our snuggly soft Bamboo/Cotton french terry, this fabric is like a more structured, less drapey version. In my opinion, a little easier to sew, and less clingy. It washes and wears really well, and the heathered colours have a nice depth.
** Please note: This particular bolt of french terry was damaged in shipping and some cuts may have some dirt or scoring along the selvedge edge. The main fabric is completely fine, but we didn't feel we could sell it at full price. If you purchase this colour you understand there may be some damage to your yardage. **
What is French Terry? French terry is a knit fabric, with one smooth side, and the reverse side has loops of thread. It's lighter weight than traditional fleece knits, but heavier than a t-shirt.

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.
