This cupro blend is a textile lover’s dream. Similar in hand and feel to sandwashed silk, we love its ethereal floatiness and elegant drape. With a soft, sueded texture and slight sheen, it's an absolute joy to handle and wear. Produced from regenerated cellulose fibre from cotton waste, cupro is breathable and regulates temperature like classic cotton. Use it for any lightweight garment, from floaty dresses, blouses, wide-legged pants and lingerie. Fully opaque, no lining is needed for this fabric.

I love the colour of this pretty fabric. Now that I made a dress with it I have some mixed feelings. It does look gorgeous however it’s not that easy to sew fue to it stickiness factor, it doesn’t move smoothly under the needle. Another point is that it’s extremely wrinkly, as I finished ironing the dress, new wrinkles appeared out of nowhere even before I put it on, just from handling the fabric. Any tips of keeping it less wrinkly would be appreciated.
Bought this to make a dress for one of my daughters for family pictures! Can’t wait to sew with it!
This IS lovely fabric but, I found it a little tricky to work with. I'm not a beginner; I'd call myself intermediate. I'm rating this four instead of five because after reading so many glowing reviews I decided I had to have this fabric, but I also want to let potential buyers know what to expect. (After working with it I went back and re-read the reviews and discovered many of the reviewers had not actually sewn it up yet.) It is slippery- no problem. I straightened the grain and pinned the fabric to paper to cut out. It wrinkles easily but irons well - with a press cloth and mid temp iron. It has no ease what so ever, so attaching the collar on the shirt I made was tedious. I think if you choose your pattern wisely and you are patient and meticulous you'll be rewarded with a lovely garment. I made the Style Arc Monty shirt but I don't think it was the best pairing; the simpler the pattern the better. I see they recommend the CC Amy jumpsuit which would be a great choice
Deep Ocean is such a gorgeous color! The fabric is soft and drapes beautifully. Can't wait to finish the blouse I have planned for it.
Cupro is a dream to sew with and comfortable to wear. I made a bias skirt and I love it!
