What is Jersey Fabric?

Jersey is a knit fabric which is widely used in clothing to make T-shirts, sweatshirts, women's tops and dresses. Originally made in Jersey in the Channel Islands (hence its name) from wool, it is now most often made from cotton. Jersey has a flat side and a piled side and feels very soft against the skin which makes it so comfortable to wear. The unique look and feel of jersey fabric comes from the knitting process which loops the fibres together rather than weaving which provides a degree of stretch. The stretch is often enhanced with a small amount of elastane. 

What is cotton elastane jersey?

Jersey is used describe any knitted fabric, so a cotton elastane jersey is any knit made up of predominately cotton with some elastane added for more stretch. This makes it ideal for children clothes and t-shirts.

Stretch jersey fabric is a versatile and comfortable material that is beloved by both fashion designers and dressmakers. Known for its elasticity, this fabric is a blend of synthetic and natural materials, often including cotton, polyester, and spandex. This blend ensures that the fabric is not only stretchy but also durable, soft, and breathable.

Stretch jersey fabric is ideal for creating a variety of clothing items, from casual wear like t-shirts and leggings to more formal attire such as fitted dresses and blouses. Its easy-to-sew nature also makes it a favourite among dressmakers looking to create their own unique designs.

Is jersey fabric good for summer?

During the summer it is necessary to keep cool when the weather may not be, and cotton elastane jersey is the perfect t-shirt material. Jersey fabric can be a lightweight and flexible material, that can be worked into most dressmaking projects. It is also breathable and stretchy making it ideal for both summer t-shirts but also for handy base layers during the colder months.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you sell by the metre?

We sell by the half metre on our website (the price is therefore displayed by the half metre) to allow our customers more flexibility. If you wish to buy a metre, you need to buy two units, but don’t worry, it will always be cut in one continuous length. 

Can I pay for next day delivery?

We can send your fabric by courier which should arrive the next day, for the additional cost of £12. The simplest way to do this is by sending us an email or by calling the shop on 0207 738 9589. We would need to know before 1pm, and we are unable to organise a Saturday delivery. 

Can I buy your fabrics if I live outside the UK?

Yes, we ship to Europe. For all the details, see our Shipping Page.  

Do you send out samples?

We do, our samples are 10 cm by the width of the fabric (usually 112cm or 137cm) and cost 10% of the fabric’s metre price plus £1.50 for postage. Simply go to our Request a Swatch page.

Is there an actual shop I can visit?

Yes, we have a shop in South London. All the fabrics, which are available online (and more) are in the shop alongside a small haberdashery and pattern range. 

The address is 52-54 Lavender Hill, Battersea, London, SW11 5RH.

Is it possible to get a wholesale price?

We are a fabric retailer rather than a wholesaler so the short answer is no, but if you are looking for a large quantity of fabric, it is best to email us on to see if we can help you out.

What does OEKO-TEX 100 mean?

OEKO-TEX 100 means the fabric has been tested for 100 harmful substances. The testing and certification process extends far beyond existing legal requirements, testing not only for substances already banned, but also for chemicals known to be unsafe, but not yet controlled by legislation. Fabrics which meet OEKO-TEX 100 are great for children’s clothing or underwear. 

How quickly will I get my order?

All our orders are sent out by Royal Mail First Class so should be with you within a few days of fulfilment and often within 1-2 days. We send fabric out on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. During busy periods such as sales, deliveries may take slightly longer, and we are always grateful for your patience.

Where do your fabrics come from?

We stock British fabrics as well as fabrics from suppliers all over the world - including Germany, Italy, Taiwan and India. 

Will you be at any shows this year?

In recent years we have cut back on the number of shows we attend but we do still go to several. For the full list have a look on our Events Page.   

Can I order a specific fabric from a supplier which you stock but isn’t on your website?

We select our fabrics from various ranges to create the interesting collections we offer and it’s rare that we buy the whole range. If you have a specific fabric you are looking for, it’s best to email us to find out if we can help you. Our email address is

When will out of stock fabrics be available again?

When we sell out of a popular fabric such as our cream bouclé, we will try very hard to get it back in quickly. As soon as it arrives, it will go straight back on our website, and we will notify our customers via social media or our weekly newsletter. If you wanted to sign up so you never miss a thing, subscribe on our simple sign up form

Do you offer gift cards?

Yes, we do have a few different types: you can buy a voucher for Free Postage for a Whole Year gift card. Or you can buy vouchers for £10, £25, £50 or £100 which will be emailed over to you immediately, in case it’s a last-minute gift. See our gift voucher page.

What does GSM mean?

GSM stands for grams per square metre; the higher the number, the thicker and heavier the fabric will be. For example, a denim or a sweatshirt fabric will have a much higher GSM than a satin.
