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.
