Olympic Stripes Ponte takes its name from the superb natural white stripes which are intarsia knitted horizintally into this excellent dark grey base ponte jersey fabric. The sporty stripes boast a slightly raised profile adding textural interest and echo the lanes of an Olympic swimming pool, we think this sporty Breton style stripe is perfect for relaxed casual wear.
This excellent ponte double jersey is made in a superfine gauge knit, from soft cool lustrous viscose fibres, with added elastane to give a useful two way stretch (slightly more stretch on the length). The viscose and elastane fibres also produce a reassuringly heavy and expensive drape quality.
With all these redeeming features imagine a capsule wardrobe of key pieces which you can mix and match with your other basic staples, grey is a grounding tone and goes with everything.
Use Olympic Stripes Ponte to make comfortable and stylish clothing that falls away from the body rather than clinging. Create lounge pants and sweatshirts, tunic tops, Breton tops and artists smocks, long-belted cardigans, classic roll-neck tops, simple raglan sleeve tops, stylish shift dresses, simple skirts and so much more.
