This fine gauge knit, very high quality, ponte double jersey has a squishy, malleable and drapey handle & feel. Featuring an excellent retentive, two-way stretch. This is Italian-knitted ponte de Roma at its finest and displays all the fantastic characteristics you would expect from a modern thoroughbred fabric; softness, easy wear, easy care and delicious colour saturation. Knitted in a superfine close knit from lovely breathable viscose plus elastane to give an amazing retentive stretch.
Melanzana (Eggplant) is a seriously rich dark aubergine colour and will make smart key pieces, the perfect partner to your existing wardrobe. Try simple wide-legged trousers with elasticated waists, pencil & tube skirts, skater style skirts & dresses, princess line sheath dresses and A-line dresses too. Try semi-tailored slim trousers with stitched down front creases for a super comfy alternative to your usual work wear. This designer quality ponte is also ideal for tops, tunics, vests, sweatshirts, sweater dresses, flared or circle skirts, tulip skirts, semi-fitted jackets, unlined jackets, cardigans and coatigans.
Equally serviceable for fitness and gym wear as well as loungewear and much more.
