Attention, marinière enthusiasts! After an extensive quest for the ultimate Breton stripe jersey proved fruitless, we took matters into our own hands and commissioned a custom creation. The result: a midweight organic cotton jersey knit featuring a medium drape and a captivating cream on black stripe ratio that embodies the essence of the iconic Breton striped shirt. (Approved by a bona fide Bretonne, who has been wearing marinières since childhood and has strong opinions on the subject, and who also happens to be writing this description.) At 280 gsm, this jersey has a wonderful body and heft and straddles the line between mid and heavyweight. It is made from 100% organic cotton and is coloured with GOTS-certified dyes. Incredibly soft to the touch (and only getting better with washing) it is low stretch and very stable – an absolute joy to sew and wear. Truly one of our all-time favourite additions to our roster! Whether you are making a classic marinière, a nautical knit dress, a casual t-shirt, or cozy joggers or sweatshirts, this jersey is destined to become a wardrobe staple. It is fully opaque and doesn't require a lining.

Care Instructions

Wash

Always pretreat fabric before sewing to remove chemical sizing from the manufacturing process. Pre-washing also gives you a better sense of the true drape and handfeel of a fabric. We recommend washing and drying fabric in the same way you intend to wash your finished garment. Be sure to separate brights and colours, as some dyes and prints may run the first few times you wash them. You can add half a cup to one cup of vinegar to the final rinse cycle to help set the colours and minimize bleeding. It’s important to wash and dry cotton to remove any potential shrinkage down the road.

Long-Term Care

Machine wash inside out in cold water. Tumble dry on low or line dry in the shade. Do not use bleach.

Fabric Tips

We recommend starting your project with a brand new ballpoint or stretch needle.

Perfect Breton stripe

After literally years of looking for a Breton Stripe similar to that used by Saint James, this is exactly the cotton knit I could never find. The weight, low stretch and stripe width combine for the perfect marinière long sleeve, boatneck top. It’s a classic that I'd order again.
