This Fabric is sold in units of 50cm (= .5m; ½ m).    For example, if you would like 2.5m, then enter the quantity ‘5’.  As Cloth Edit only receives limited quantities of each fabric, err on the side of caution when ordering.   Take into account any additional length etc.
Every effort has been made to present the fabric as accurately as possible.  If the precise colour, weight and feel of the fabric is important for your decision, and the photos aren’t giving you enough detail, the best option to eliminate disappointment is to use the Swatch Service.  Each Swatch is .50c.  See under the 'About' tab for more details. 

This 90% Modal / 10% Spandex striped cloth is sourced from an Australian designer who manufactures their garments locally, only ever using cloth that is made in Australia and New Zealand. 

This bespoke cloth has very good 4-way stretch and excellent recovery.  This Modal is on the stable side, and has good drape.  It works well with designs that have some negative ease, but also suits t-shirts, t-shirt dresses and light sweaters that fit or ‘skim’ rather than stretching too tightly around the body.  Because it does drape, it is also perfect for any statement sleeve pullover tops, and more trapeze shaped tops and dresses. 

There may be slight shade differences between rolls of fabric, so ensure you purchase enough for your project.  The selvages have small dots of a dried, clear adhesive, used for loom and roll stability.  The indicated fabric width does not include the selvage.

For your cloth edit consider:  semi-fitted and loose tops, tunics and dresses, loose elastic waist pants, a kimono or robe (short or full length), easy elastic waist maxi skirts, and light weight sweaters.

Cloth Edit stocks many beautiful indie patterns that would be a perfect match with this 90% Modal 10% Spandex.  Consider the re-released Named Patterns’ Kielo dress, and the I AM Patterns’ Cassiopee, Emilien, Milor, Lion and Zebre.   

This quality Modal is made from renewable beech wood pulp, the source of the luxurious soft hand of the cloth.  It is cool and soft against the skin, is 50% more absorbent than cotton, and also more breathable.  Modal is a perfect fabric for the Australian summer.  It also resists shrinking and fading, although we still recommend pre-handwashing your cloth, and drying naturally.  It also happens to be great for travelling.  Hang it up when you get to your destination, or just let any creases fall out as you wear it.  See the care instructions below.

Cloth Care:

This Modal knit is resilient and luxurious, but also can be delicate.  It will last for a long time, and retain its colour and shape if it is looked after.  Due to its spandex content it can’t be treated as freely as 100% Modal.  Follow these guidelines to ensure the garment has longevity, and to avoid disappointment:

  • Avoid sharp jewellery rubbing on the fabric, and avoid sharp corners and surfaces
  • Turn inside-out when washing to avoid any unnecessary rubbing against the garment surface.
  • Cold hand wash
  • Do Not Wring
  • Do Not bleach
  • Dry in the shade (preferably flat). The sun damages spandex.
  • Cool Iron (but preferably let any creases fall out as you wear it)
  • If you must machine wash (at your own risk) use a garment bag to avoid the garment being pulled out of shade, and a short, cold, delicate cycle
  • Do Not tumble dry. Dryers destroy spandex.
  • If there is a lot of weight in the garment, store it folded rather than hanging it on a hanger.
