Cotton knits are a staple for comfort clothing and fashion sewing. Cotton is soft and breathable, and spandex stretches to move with the body. Our jersey knit is a medium weight - not too heavy, not too flimsy. Minimal (5%) shrinkage in length.
Please note: Dirt marks on the back side of the fabric will not be considered a flaw.
Fabric Preparation and Prewash Tips
We recommend prewashing your cotton spandex fabrics to prepare them for sewing. For any fabrics that include dark, saturated, or very bright colors, we recommend a cold wash separately or with like colors only. Use a commercial color catcher to help capture any loose dye in the wash. Examine wet washed fabric before drying. If you experience transfer of color onto a white/light area of your fabric, we suggest rewashing the fabric again on cold before you dry the fabric. Drying the fabric after color has transferred can make dye transfer difficult to remove. Another tip for fixing color transfer is to soak the fabric in an oxy cleaner solution to remove the excess dye from lighter areas and then wash in cold water.
Machine wash and dry, or hang to dry.
Prewash to remove shrinkage. Use a universal or ball point needle. Best sewn with a serger or a walking foot.

This is my first time not loving Sahara fabrics. It was very soft after washing, but I did discover a fairly long (almost didn't notice it) cut in the fabric (literally like One thread has been pulled)... I can't confirm if the fabric came that way or if it was something in my washer, but that really sucked and it wasn't nearly as scratchy as other fabric I've received t even tho it's the 50/50... I'm hoping this was just a fluke. Overall Sahara fabrics are great quality and I'll still be making future purchases, just paying much closer attention next time.
easy to sew!

This is the most buttery soft cotton lycra yet. I love the colors and it goes with everything!
