All about softness and drape, this midweight fabric feels lighter than is actually is. A unique double-spun yarn with a hollow core creates an ultra-soft premium fabric combines volume and lightness to create a super-comfortable textile. When blended with environmentally-friendly fibers such as Tencel®, it results in a fabric with a gorgeous heavy drape and luxurious hand feel.
This fabric also utilises a cleaner dye process. Glucose is used rather than hydrosulphites, similar to the indigo dying practices of yesteryear.
TENCEL™ branded Lyocell is produced by environmentally responsible processes from sustainably sourced natural raw material wood. The unique physical properties of these fibers lead to their great strength, efficient moisture absorption and gentleness to skin. TENCEL™ Lyocell has a reputation for its environmentally responsible closed loop production process, which transforms wood pulp into cellulosic fibers with high resource efficiency and low environmental impact. This solvent-spinning process recycles process water and reuses the solvent at a recovery rate of more than 99%.
Sustans® fibre is superior to standard mineral-based polyester, offering good stretch and recovery, a natural soft hand feel, and a smooth, wrinkle-resistant surface. Quick-drying and moisture management properties make this fabric ideal for active clothing. The high percentage of cotton offers breathability while the fluffy Sustans fibres assist with controlling body heat.

Note: Sew Active Fabrics makes a big effort to take pictures that clearly and accurately show the colours of our fabrics and notions. However, computer monitors and browsers display colours differently, so there may be small variations from what you see and the actual colour of a fabric. If you need an exact shade in a fabric, please get in touch; we’re happy to send a small sample.
