Humbug Breton Wide Stripe is a cool and breathable, striking, black and white striped, intarsia knitted, single jersey fabric. The super horizontal humbug stripes are finely knitted with a consistently spaced repeat, making the perfect Breton style jersey and ideal for relaxed casual wear that will match with anything & everything.
This excellent single jersey is made in a superfine gauge knit, from soft cotton and elastane to give a bounce back stretch across the width and length. A fluid medium weight drape gives you endless possibilities for feminine styles where you can play with the direction of the stripes .
With all these redeeming features imagine a capsule wardrobe of key pieces which you can mix & match with your other basic staples, black and white stripes always look fresh and sporty, and are easily incorporated with most other colours and tones.
Use Humbug Breton Wide Stripe to make comfortable and stylish clothing that falls away from the body rather than clinging. Create T'shirts, tunic tops with flared silhouettes and shark bite hems. Extend this style into dresses and add multi directional panels to the hemline to create eye-catching flared details. Breton tops and artists smocks, classic roll-neck tops, simple raglan sleeve tops, simple shift dresses and skirts and so much more.
