Organic Cotton Jersey Fabric
Our Organic Cotton Jersey Fabric is a lightweight, all-cotton single knit. This is a classic fabric for intimate apparel or underwear of any kind. Our customers use this Cotton Jersey Fabric as a gusset lining in panties. However, this fabric also makes a wonderfully comfortable cup lining, for those with sensitive skin. Customers also use the fabric to make lighter panties, tank tops, and T-shirts. The fabric is made from 100% Organic Cotton and is very soft against the skin. The fabric is 58-60″ (147-150 cm) wide, with mechanical give in the crosswise direction only.
We advise washing the fabric before use, as it is 100% cotton and it will shrink 2-3%. Simply wash the fabric in hot water and throw it in the dryer. This will pre-shrink the fabric.
A tip to keep the fabric from curling after pre-shrinking – before washing the Organic Cotton, serge across the ends of the fabric folded in half. This prevents tangling in the washer or dryer. The serged ends are simply cut off, without wasting much fabric.

Women who are highly allergic to synthetics of any kind including sensitivities to polyester, rayon, nylon, or even blends of these fabric with spandex, use our Organic Cotton Jersey fabric everyday. The fabric is stretchy on the crosswise grain, more so than on the lengthwise grain. We advise customers using this fabric for bra cups to use two layers of the fabric with DoGS opposing – that is with the grain line running at opposite angles to one another.
The Jersey is available in a variety of lovely colours: White, Off-White, Ivory, Pink, Deep Pink, Fuchsia, Warm Red, Turquoise, Dove, Chocolate, and Black.
