Organic Cotton Tubular Ribbing Fabric in Purple

Every time we see purple we cant help but think of a poem by Jenny Joseph: When I am an old woman I shall wear purple.

Our purple cotton ribbing fabric is ideal for sewing cuffs and neckbands and also is a perfect match both to our t-shirt weight purple cotton jersey

Unlike 2×1 rib knit fabric, tubular ribbing fabric comes knitted as a long tube or a sock if you prefer, just without the toe bit. To use it, cut the tube open and voila, 70cm wide 1×1 ribbing.

Fabric description

Pantone colour of the year 2022 Very Perri, a beautiful shade of purple.

Our cotton ribbing are all organic GOTS certified and come with matching t-shirt weight jerseys.

Use this tubular ribbing for cuffs and neckbands on jersey t-shirts and jumpers.

Tubular means  it is it is knitted in a long tube, like a sock but without the toe bit. To use it, slash the tube and open the fabric. It will measure 70cm wide, so not always possible to use it as a main fabric

Tubular ribbing in comparison to 2×1 rib knit fabric is fairly flat and is little bit thinner due to lack of visible ridges. This makes is perfect option for trims on your t-shirts.
