Choosing Hexham Fabrics
Designed to be sewn with knit fabrics, The Hexham will work with either 2-way or 4-way stretch.
We suggest cotton jersey, cotton/spandex jersey, cotton interlock, bamboo jersey, merino jersey, merino interlock, cotton/modal jersey.
It can be helpful to shop online with stores which gives lots of information in their fabric description!
The Merino Collective in NZ has a great selection in merino fabrics in a variety of colours. A+R Fabric in Australia also stocks Merino Collective fabrics.
In the UK, Sister Mintaka has lovely bamboo and cotton jerseys which would be great. Winnipeg Sews in Canada stocks organic knits in some beautiful shades.
Miss Maude in NZ gives thorough descriptions of the stretch in all her knit fabrics and has lots of lovely colours. Also in NZ, Nellie Joans has lots of great fabrics which would be suitable (basically things that would be great for the Banksia Bralette will also make great Kapunda Undies and Hexham Dresses)!
