Which knit fabric should I buy?

Looking for a fabric with a little flexibility? Spoonflower offers multiple stretch knit fabrics, each with their own personalities.

Our Organic Cotton Knit is a great choice if you're looking for natural fibers or organic fabric. It's a heavyweight interlock fabric that's a bit like a t-shirt knit, but thicker. For a lighter option, Modern Jersey is a polyester knit with a cottony feel and matte finish that's perfect for projects that need a delicate, airy knit. Our Cotton Spandex Jersey is super stretchy, with great recovery, and is between Modern Jersey and Organic Cotton Knit in weight. All three fabrics are great for kids and infant clothes and blankets that need to be extra soft and snuggly.

For a knit that has vibrant colors that hold up wonderfully to repeated washings, you'll want to check out our Performance PiquéSport Lycra or Modern Jersey. The Performance Piqué even has a soil-release finish that makes laundering a breeze.

For athletic apparel, leggings, and other projects that need a breathable fabric, Performance Piqué has moisture-wicking properties to keep you cool and dry, as well as a gentle diamond-like texture. Sport Lycra stretches to fit your body and is perfect for leotards, swim suits, leggings and other form-fitting pieces.

If you're looking for a 4-way stretch, our Modern Jersey, Sport Lycra and Cotton Spandex Jersey all stretch both vertically and horizontally.

Our stretchiest 2-way knit is our Performance Piqué, with Organic Cotton Knit close behind.
