95% organic cotton, 5% elastane jersey knit fabric
Our soft and durable GOTS certified organic knit fabric is designed in the UK and printed in Europe using environmentally friendly reactive dye techniques.
The elastane component of the jersey provides two way (or four way as some people describe it) stretch and gives it good recovery so clothes made from this fabric will be more wearable (e.g. no baggy knees in leggings etc). Great for kidswear!
As with all natural fabrics you will notice some shrinkage on first wash.
We suggest you prewash the fabric before sewing as this will produce the most predictable results- the initial wash should ideally be at 60ºC and on its own to prevent any slight colour run.
Thereafter, items made from the jersey should be washed on a cool setting with similar colours and line dried. Warm iron.
