these fabrics will give the best drape and swing. They are perfect for Summer.
– Rayon Knit
Bamboo Knit

these will give a good drape, and provide a moderate warmth. These fabric bases are best for light layers.
–  Jersey Knit (Cotton Lycra)
Single Brushed Polyester knit
Double Brushed Polyester knit
Crushed Velvet knit

I used the ‘Madison‘ Double Brushed Polyester for my Circle Cardie

‘Julia’ Double Brushed Polyester

‘Demoiselle’ Jersey Knit


these fabrics will be a bit more snug, they will not have the same drape as the lighter fabric but you will be toasty warm! These are perfect for Winter garments, especially in the the parts of Australia that get the frigid cold.
Brushed Sweater knit
French Terry
Stretchy Fleece

‘Oatmeal’ Sweater Knit
