Heathered Light weight Ponte Di Roma – Black
This is a Lighter weight Ponte fabric compared to our usual ponte fabrics, as a result it has a lovely drape.
Ponte Di Roma is an excellent quality jersey fabric with a good body and weight. It was developed in Italy (hence the name). It is also known as double knit as it’s knit in two layers during construction and both sides have a smooth finish.
It is a popular fabric due to its comfortable and flattering fit as it skims the curves of the body. It sews up as easy as cotton – just use a ballpoint needle in your machine, doesn’t crease and is warm in the colder weather.
Ponte is an ideal fabric for a wide range of garments for office wear, daywear and everyday wear and can be made into durable garments such as jackets, jeans, leggings, jeggings, dresses, cardigans and tunics.
It wears and washes well so you will get a lot of use out of your clothing.

|Fabric Pre-Treatment||Before cutting out your garment, wash and dry in a program you will be likely to use on the finished garment. This will allow any shrinkage to occur so you are not disappointed with the fit of the finished garment. Natural fibres can shrink up to 10%. If you want to check the fabric first – wash a small sample comparing its dimensions before and after washing & drying.|
