Product review! Feb 2021
I’ve just finished a top, Sew house seven Tabor v neck t-shirt, made in your bamboo jersey knit fabric, and I’m really pleased with it 🙂 The fabric is lovely to sew with, wonderful quality, and drapes beautifully. It is not too thin and is perfect for this pattern. Just wanted to let you know.
What is Bamboo Jersey?
The bamboo fibres are made by manipulating the bamboo leaves until they separate into thin threads, these are then spun into thread for weaving or knitting fabrics.
Bamboo jersey is anti-bacterial and also odour-resistant and it is a great choice for people with sensitive skin, especially problems with eczema or allergies. The elastane ensures comfortability, durability and gives the fabric a four-way-stretch but still allows the fabric to hold its shape. The bamboo jersey is absorbent and breathable which makes it cool to wear.
Is Bamboo Eco-friendly?
The bamboo plant grows quickly without using pesticides, excessive water or care. Bamboo regenerates quickly and even cleans the air while it grows.
What Can I Sew With Bamboo Jersey?
Bamboo jersey is ideal for sewing dresses, blouses, skirts and tunics, t-shirts, tanks, leggings. It is also perfect for children’s wear, sportswear, casual- and loungewear
How Do I Care For Bamboo Jersey Fabric?
Bamboo jersey washes beautifully, the dyes are colourfast and because it is a natural fabric, it dries quickly. We recommend washing your bamboo jersey before starting your project, machine wash at 30 degrees. Press carefully on a low temperature iron setting with steam from the reverse fabric side.
