Bamboo Knit Stretch Rayon Fabric
This luxurious Bamboo Knit Stretch Rayon Fabric with Spandex drapes so nicely. So well in fact, it feels almost liquid in your hands! Because it is derived from a natural plant source, it is officially called rayon. However, it features the properties of any natural fibre – it is warm in winter and cool in summer, to help regulate your body temperature. Beverly Johnson uses the Bamboo Knit for some of the knit tops she wears on the Craftsy set!
The Bamboo Knit works well as a cover for foam cups or as a pocket for the prosthesis. Customers use this ultra-soft fabric for panties, bralettes, camisoles, tank tops, t-shirts, and men’s underwear. This fabric is lightweight and naturally anti-bacterial. Once you try it, it will become a staple in your stash!
95% rayon derived from Bamboo and 5% spandex with very good stretch in both directions. 58-60 inches wide (145-150 cm) This fabric WILL shrink so please pre-wash it. Some people claim that a Bamboo Knit is difficult to work with. Not so…IF you spray it with spray starch before you cut. Simply spray the un-cut fabric and give it a press. The fabric will not curl and you will be able to sew it quite easily.
This Stretch Rayon Fabric is available in an amazing selection of 19 beautiful colours: White, Ivory, Cameo Rose, Coral, Dark Coral, Pink, Deep Pink, Fuchsia, Red, Black Cherry, Wedgewood, Periwinkle, Tropical Green, Navy Blue, Dark Plum, Heather Grey, Dark Heather Grey, Chocolate, and Black.
The Bamboo Knit is an ultra-soft stretch fabric, great for making any garment that sits against the skin. Our customers use this fabric to make comfy panties, camisoles, bras (this fabric works wonderfully over foam cups), bralettes, tank tops, t-shirts, and men’s underwear. The man in your life will never go back to store-bought after wearing a pair of Bamboo Knit underwear!
