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.

I'm so in love with DSS's knit solids!!! I have a bunch of oddball colors from Hilco, Lillestoff, Shalmiak, Liandlo, etc.z, but it's so overpriced. When I go to my local fabric store and touch Robert Kardman's laguna solids, I cringe. It's the same price, yet DSS's is about 4-5oz heavier!
The color doesn't really fade, and certainly not as much as others I've tried. Stretch and recovery are amazing, given the weight and Lycra content. The color is so richly preserved, even after my abuse of fabrics!
I'm definitely buying more from DSS. Usually, for basics, I buy Art Gallery, simply because I get a deal, but this is so much better!

I love this fabric-the weight of it is perfect for Texas-not too thin, but not super heavy either. After washing it the first time, it was so soft, too!
