Can I purchase woven apparel fabrics at Spotlight?

Yes, you can. Woven fabrics account for a large percentage of all dressmaking and apparel fabrics and we are pleased to be able to offer you a wide choice of these fabrics here at Spotlight. Woven apparel fabrics are available in many weights, fibres, colours and designs, making it easy to find the right fabric for your next sewing project here.

What are the features of woven apparel fabrics?

Woven fabrics are made up of a weft - the yarn going across the width of the fabric - and a warp - the yarn going down the length of the loom. The side of the fabric where the wefts are double-backed to form a non-fraying edge is called the selvedge. There are at least three distinct types of woven fabric, which are:

Plain weave: In plain-weave fabric, the warp and weft are aligned so that they form a simple criss-cross pattern. Plain-weave is strong and hardwearing, so it's used for fashion and furnishing fabrics.

Twill weave: In twill-weave fabric, the crossings of weft and warp are offset to give a diagonal pattern on the fabric surface. This means the fabric is strong, drapes well and is used for jeans, jackets and curtains.

Satin weave: Satin-weave fabrics consist of a complex arrangement of warp and weft threads, which allows longer float threads either across the warp or the weft. The long floats mean the light falling on the yarn doesn't scatter and break up, like on a plain-weave. The reflected light creates a smooth, lustrous (shiny) surface commonly called satin.

What are the advantages of woven apparel fabrics?

Here are some of the main advantages of woven fabrics:

Cost: As in all industries, time and labour have an effect on the cost of items. Woven fabrics are formed on looms and are made to be sturdy. The fabric cannot be stretched and does not shrink. While this does produce high-quality material, it does increase production costs.

Washing: Most woven fabrics are simple to launder and typically will not shrink or wrinkle. The main exceptions to this are linen and silk, which it may be better to dry-clean.

Durability: Woven fabrics by far outlast most other fabrics such as knits, and this is why so many heavy-duty fabrics are weaves. Examples of woven fabrics include denim, linen, corduroy and tweed.

Does Spotlight also sell other types of fabric?

Yes, as well as woven fabrics, Spotlight also stocks a large collection of knitted fabrics. Knitted fabrics are generally more stretchy than woven fabrics and the stretch means they are less prone to wrinkling too. Woven and knitted fabrics cannot usually be interchanged, so if you are unsure as to which fabric you need, check your pattern for information or ask advice from our sales staff.

Of course, there are special fabrics for sale here at Spotlight too, that are neither woven nor knitted, such as bonded fabrics, imitation leather and vinyl, and other specialty fabrics such as lace, nylon tulle and nets.
