brushed cotton fabric

The difference between cotton and brushed cotton fabric

Sometimes normal cotton fabric is just not enough, which is why we have a wide selection of brushed cotton fabric pieces that will be sure to impress. Normal cotton is a natural fibre, also known as being ‘cotton only’ - as it does not have any other qualities added to it. However, brushed cotton is a combination of various fabric structures put together but brushed finely to remove any excess lint, this ultimately leaves the fabric with a soft and smooth finish. 

Uses of brushed cotton fabric

Our variety of brushed cotton fabric pieces are extremely comfortable on the skin without any itchiness, they are also breathable which is really important as it can help reduce sweat. With these qualities, it can act as a moisture-wicker and dry incredibly fast compared to most other materials. So, you can create shirts, pyjamas, trousers as well as patchworking and quilting projects. We know that you will fall in love with our brushed cotton fabric and create some unique designs for yourself and the whole family.
