Ponte type double jersey fabrics are superb, practical, easy wear/easy care and even easy make! Damson Damask - Jacquard Ponte is no exception, knitted in a superfine poly and elastane yarn, this jacquard knitted fabric has a stylish renaissance design, of scrolling acanthus leaf motifs featuring the rich damson of its namesake set dramatically against classic black.
The dual layer construction of blister cloth jerseys allow this fabric to be knitted at different tensions on the face which create textural dimples and crinkles that form little pockets - soft, textured and cosy. No ironing this one is an added bonus!
Boasting a firm width wise stretch and excellent stretch on the length, this versatile fabric is stable until stretched, as well as having a soft drape. The rich colour palette and historical design make for a stylish fabric.
Ideal for making easy wear sweatshirt tops and cardigan styles, tunics, dolman and batwing tops. Add a vintage feel by crafting a '60s style slip dress, with the Tilly and Buttons Coco Dress pattern for a super easy first make. Wendy Ward's book - A Beginners Guide to Sewing with Knitted Fabrics has some excellent patterns and hints and tips on making up fabrics like this fab ponte also.
