Deep Purple Suprima Ponte KnitMarcy Tilton
One of our most popular pontes. Rich, deep, dark-ish purple. This is a fabulous quality ponte, just a bit lighter in weight than our 5 star pontes...so I've dubbed it Suprima. Ponte is a generic term for a double knit, but the fiber content can vary. This one has the ideal fiber content, is a blend of rayon/nylon/spandex, so it has a smooth matte texture, beefy, but good drape, appealing hand and 4 way stretch. Ideal for pants, either with some fullness or a narrow skinny pant. Just right for a jacket, vest, dress or skirt. One of our best all around basics, perfect for wardrobe planning and travel too.
Pre-treat by machine wash/dry gentle. After sewing, hand launder or machine wash gentle and air dry. I NEVER put darks or pontes in the dryer, it can fade the color and will make dark colors look 'tired' much more than wearing the garment will.
