Cotton / Lycra Blend Ribbing in a Rainbow of Colors.
I have new colors of Ribbing.
It is a cotton/lycra blend and being sold in pre-cut fat eighths (9" X 21").
A normal 1/8 yard would be 4 1/2" long X 42 wide". A fat eighth, like a fat quarter, gives you more usable dimensions to work in.
I carry 3 rib types... a 1 x 1 (
), 2 x 2 (
) and a yellow uneven (
a more patterned look
Ribbing is used as neckbands, sleevebands, cuffs at the wrists and ankles, and for waistbands (ie. the bottom of sweatshirts). I use it for the ankle cuffs on
Baby Bootie Pattern 5
The small amount of lycra in with the cotton, allows a better recovery of the fabric when it is stretched. It prevents stretched out looking neckbands and allows booties to stay on.
Ribbing is also made with polyester, but I prefer cotton, so I don't carry it.
