Designer Marylou Marsh describes rib knit fabrics as "good for body-conscious design and fit, because the fabric has recovery without lycra. It's one of my favorite fabrics to work with because you can tailor it but it's also very comfortable and easy to wear and design." The soft feel, convenient stretch, and added visual interest created by the subtle knit pattern make this quite the multipurpose fabric. Choose it for sweet summer t-shirts or dresses, swimsuit coverups, stylish ensembles, even longjohns and pajamas. And don't forget the baby gowns, children's shirts and play pants, and other uses for the little ones. With 100% stretch, consider making leggings paired with a top made with our Wild Berry 1x1 Stripe Rib (designed specifically as a coordinating fabric).
At 10.8 ounces per linear yard, this fabric weighs 6.7 ounces per square yard. It's a tubular fabric, which means it's either 29" wide uncut or 58" wide if you choose to cut it open. Knit in the US from American-grown cotton.
