Here at Selfmade®, formerly known as STOFF & STIL, we have a wide range of jersey fabrics. Jersey material is a soft fabric, which is very comfortable and therefore perfect for clothing. We have a wide range of different colours and prints suitable for both children and adults.
We have prints with many details but also more neutral and classic prints. Here at Selfmade® you will find some of the most beautiful prints on the market.
The wonderful world of jersey fabric
Jersey is often knitted using a thin yarn, producing a lovely, soft fabric. Here you will find a whole host of jersey fabrics, plain, marl and printed, for children and adults. The prints are both regular rotary prints (limited number of colours) and digital prints with lots of details and a wealth of colours.
Jersey fabric can be used for both clothing and interior such as bed linen and cushions for your sofa. Jersey has an attractive price per meter and is durable even if you wash it many times.
All jersey fabrics contain elastane, which gives the jersey fabric a stretchy effect. This means that the fabric will look nice on your body without feeling stiff or uncomfortable. All jersey fabrics come with a detailed description of how to wash the fabric, how much it shrinks in wash, material values, width and weight. Some of the jersey fabrics are even organic and good for allergies.
The jersey fabrics are easily combined with other types of fabrics – only your fantasy puts an end to the opportunities. You can find inspiration for your next sewing project in our wide selection of patterns or in our catalogue.
What is jersey fabric used for?
Jersey fabric is often the material of choice for creating jumpers, pyjamas, soft baby clothing and cosy autumn/winter wear. It’s soft against your skin, comfortable for long periods of time. You’ll also find that it’s stretchy and allows you to move easily with it.
Jersey fabric is usually made of cotton or synthetic fibres combined with elastane. Some jersey fabrics also contain wool fibres, as traditional jersey would. Because the fabric contains elastane to make it stretchy, you’ll need to use stretch needles on your machine to ensure your hems stay put! You can find all the tools you need for stitching your new jersey fabric here at Selfmade®.
