A fabulous black knit basic, a touch heavier than our all time best selling Black Parisian Microfiber, this has 'good' written all over it, one of those fabrics that visually make you look 10# slimmer. Supple, buttery hand, liquid drape, cool dry hand and matte finish. A microfiber, so it uses the best of contemporary technology. 4 way stretch with great recovery and no rolling at the cut edge. Mid weight and perfect for so many different kinds of garments, fabulous for wardrobing. For pants, skirts, dress, tunic, T-shirt, cardigan, vest. You could make an entire wardrobe from this fabric. Perfect for travel. Make a test sample to determine the best needle and iron temperature.
My pressing secret in sewing with microfiber is the same for working with a suiting wool or gabardine: use a wooden clapper on the seams. You don't need to pound, just rest the clapper on the seam and let the wood absorb the heat, it flattens things beautifully. Topstitching is also a good option. This is a modern day matte jersey, the kind of fabric I see in upper end clothes in Paris and used by designers like Donna Karan and Eileen Fisher.
Pre-treat by wash/dry gentle. After sewing, wash gentle and air dry.
