Presenting our eco-friendly rib knit, designed with comfort, consciousness, and versatility in mind! Made from a unique blend of breathable cotton, eco-friendly TENCEL™ Modal, and a hint of spandex for stretch and resilience, this fabric offers both comfort and sustainability. With its midweight feel and gentle drape, it boasts a soft, cozy hand and excellent mechanical stretch due to its ribbed construction. Ideal for crafting soft cardigans, lightweight sweaters, snug tees, tanks and bodysuits, and all kinds of loungewear. Plus, it's perfect for cuffs and necklines! While fully opaque, it may show slight transparency when stretched to its limit.

Produced Using Sustainable Fibres

Tencel™ Modal fibres are extracted from naturally grown beech wood by an environmentally responsible integrated pulp-to-fibre process that"s self-sufficient in energy and where the used chemicals are recovered rather than released. So its production is far gentler on the environment than other forms of Rayon. It is also fully biodegradable and is renowned for its durability and exceptional softness (it feels twice as soft as cotton).<br>

Care Instructions


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

Cotton/ Tencel Modal blends may shrink excessively when exposed to high heat. Machine wash in cool water and tumble dry on low.

Fabric Tips

Use a medium iron with a pressing cloth. We recommend starting your project with a brand new ballpoint or stretch needle.

Cotton Tencel Modal Rib Knit

Due to unforseen circumstances I have not yet sewn with this beautiful fabric. It is beyond lovely, perfect weight for summer wear. In a word "luciousness" comes to mind. All of Core Fabrics kits, supplies, fabrics and hardware are top notch.
