Today we’re very excited to announce the arrival of a brand new fabric in the Spoonflower family, which we’re calling Performance Knit. Starting today, you’ll find the new fabric available in the drop-down list whenever you order from our site.
The Performance Knit is a completely new type of material that’s quite different from any of our current fabric choices. The hand and drape is lovely, and you’ll find that the printed color is brighter and richer than any other fabric we’ve ever offered. This 100% polyester also has wicking and performance qualities that make it terrific for apparel, and it holds up to repeated washing without the least bit of fading. Current customers should note that this new knit is not as stretchy as the organic interlock knit offering. There are a few other notable qualities of the Performance Knit — it does not wrinkle much after being washed, but also doesn’t easly hold a crease when you’re sewing with it. A little later today, look for a tutorial that includes some sewing tips specific to the new fabric.
