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.

Can I purchase cotton polyester fabric at Spotlight?

Yes, you can. Cotton polyester fabric is one of the most popular and versatile fabrics around and lends itself to a great number of applications, from making bedding to craft items as well as dressmaking and many other household items. The addition of polyester adds strength and ease of maintenance to the great properties of cotton fabric. You will find a wide variety of cotton polyester fabric at Spotlight, available by the metre, including plain, striped, and patterned.

Why use cotton polyester fabric?

Cotton polyester can be used in nearly every instance where a pattern calls for cotton, or polyester. It has a number of advantages, including:

  • Addition of polyester fibres makes the fabric durable and hard-wearing
  • It is less prone to wrinkling than pure cotton
  • It is more breathable than polyester
  • It will shrink less than cotton fabric
  • It is easy to sew with and drapes well

 

Even though cotton polyester fabric has many advantages, it must be kept in mind that it is not quite as breathable as pure cotton, so may be less suitable for very hot climates, and it can also not be washed at high temperatures, which may be an issue when it comes to work clothing.

Can I dye cotton polyester fabric?

Yes, you can. While some dyes are made particularly for natural fibres, there are also many dyes that are suitable for fibre blends such as cotton polyester fabrics. Polyester blend fabrics can be more difficult to dye than 100% natural fibres, but blends with at least 50 to 60 percent cotton can be dyed successfully.

Is cotton polyester fabric easy to sew with?

Yes, it is one of the fabrics that can be sewed with easily even by beginners as it is not particularly slippery, is lightweight, and does not stretch. It also does not fray much along the edges. Cotton polyester can be used for clothing, bedding, kids garments, tablecloths, cushion covers and many craft projects. It is available here at Spotlight in a large variety of colours and designs, so you should be able to find just the cotton polyester fabric you are looking for.

Does Spotlight sell other types of fabric too?

Yes, Spotlight has a huge range of fabrics ranging from delicate dressmaking fabrics to sturdy general-purpose fabrics and heavy-duty upholstery and interior fabrics. Most fabrics are available by the metre which means you can buy as much or as little as you need. Also, why not take a look at the large range of patterns on offer here at Spotlight, if you are planning to start a sewing project?
