I am so excited to offer this new fabric base! 67% Tencel Lyocell, 29% Merino Wool, and 4% Spandex. It is 200gsm, making it a lightweight jersey with plenty of stretch and recovery.
Now a little bit of why I love this fabric so much! Lyocell is derived from eucalyptus, bamboo, and beech trees that are fast growing varieties that do not require irrigation or pesticides. It is processed with a low-energy and low-water system that recycles 99.5% of the solvents used in production. It is highly durable and 100% biodegradable. Plus, it's very soft, antibacterial, and moisture wicking. Merino wool is arguably the best fabric in the world! Pasture-raised, grass-fed sheep produce a new fleece annually, making merino wool completely renewable and sustainable. Merino wool is lightweight, moisture wicking, breathable, antibacterial, and heat regulating. Together, these two fabrics make the perfect pair.
I pre-wash and machine dry all of my fabrics prior to sewing. While it is recommended that you wash this fabric in cold water and hang to dry, you and I both know that there's a very good chance they will end up in the dryer. So not to worry - I've pre-shrunk them already and your items should not shrink after purchase.
