Super soft and smooth! Stretchy for comfort! 90% Cotton and 10% Lycra knit weave. The classic "must have" fabric! Exactly like our CLF but in black! Not too heavy. Great for all sportswear, dancewear & theater! Sew up a garment & then add our fabric metallic paints & our sparkling Hot-Fix crystals for your own custom exciting textile adornments. Also - we had fun discharging results!

Discharges with plain old household bleach to a lovely salmon color.
Discharges with plain deColourant (#DECP) to a taupey beige color.
Discharges with deColourant Plus Colors (#DCCP48: Brights):
    Bright Orange yields a bright neon orange color.
    Bright Lime yields a grass green color.
    Bright Purple yields a royal plum color.
Discharges with Jacquard Screen Ink Discharge (#JSID) to an ivory color.
Discharges with Discharge Paste Color Remover (#DDP) to an ivory color.

Removes all the cotton fibers and leaves behind the lightweight flesh toned lycra knit inside!
Be sparing about the amount of Fiber Etch you use so that you don’t create small burnt out holes. However, the holes can be a really cool look for those wanting a punk or grunge look to their fabric. Very urban dramatic look with the black fabric!
As with all fabrics, best to test your discharging technique on a sample before embarking on your project because the fabric can vary from dyelot to dyelot.

I got this a little while back and it is one of my new favorite fabrics. I made a pair of wide-leg stretch pants and it was thick enough to hold a nice shape but stretchy enough to be super comfy and soft if maybe a little warmer (though this is to be expected what with it being a heavier material). Compared to other stretchy material it irons well and it didn't roll or shift while I was cutting out the pattern pieces. I look forward to making more clothes from it.

Love this fabric! I plan to make a whole wardrobe of garments using this fabric. Palazzo pants and an asymmetric tunic top are the first items on my list.

This is my favorite fabric for making basic leggings. The pairs I made two years ago are still going strong and look presentable when washed but it is time to have a few new pair. Nice to sew with and even nicer to wear with a stretch that doesn't remind you of its lycra content constantly. The black wears nicely into a muted black not a weird off-green and never becomes transparent. I have not used this for surface design yet but it seems strong enough to hold up for discharge techniques. Highly recommended!

About Tiered Discount Levels

You can combine cotton and rayon clothing & accessories to get the greatest discounts. Your discount is figured on the total number of cotton and rayon items we ship, not how many of each type, style or size. Mix and match them to get the best discount.

Example: adding 4 each of 3 different T-shirts in any sizes will give you the 12+ price on all 12 shirts.

Some products may be excluded from discounts, and / or may discount only with themselves. If you have any questions at all please contact us toll free at 800-542-5227 (no buttons, just humans).
