Jersey Cotton, or more commonly Jersey, is particularly appreciated for its characteristics of softness and elasticity.
As characteristics, Jersey cotton is opaque but to the touch it is soft and very elastic, with a honeycomb surface, shaved; Particularly versatile, it is often used to make long dresses (jersey fabric).
Depending on the composition, it can however be used to make light blouses for the summer, dresses and pajamas for children but also winter clothes.
The Jersey is breathable and light, soft to the touch and elastic and in addition it is easy to wash.
The Jersey material comes from a locality, the island of Jersey which is located in the English Channel and contrary to popular belief, it is not a fabric since it has neither weft nor warp to weave. Instead, it is a jersey fabric that has an affinity with the cotton, viscose and wool with which the different types are produced.
There are, in fact, a few types of jersey: Cotton jersey fabric, which uses 100% cotton, Jersey composed of 80% lycra and 20% polyester and jersey which uses 100% viscose (jersey material).
Still different is the jersey used for winter clothing which usually combines a mixture of fibers in very precise percentages in order to obtain a more compact and heavier fabric, obviously at the expense of softness.
