We are so excited for our latest fabric release, Morraine Double Cashmere Sweater Knit! This fabric base is absolutely incredible and unlike any other! With cashmere like softness, this fabric will quickly become your go-to for comfort and warmth! With substantial thickness, this fabric makes the perfect sweater dress, the cuddliest of cozy cardigans or coatigans, the most blanket-like hoodie sweaters and everything in between! We could rave on and on about this fabric, but we thought we'd spare you of all that and share the makes and thoughts from each of our talented sewists!
"When I saw the Double Brushed Cashmere I immediately knew it had to become a sweater dress for the winter. I used the Mirra Raglan from Hallå Patterns
. I added extra length to the tunic option and slightly modified the crossover cowl neck. The fabric is cuddly, soft and very warm. It’s low key like wearing a blanket. I can’t wait for temps to drop so I can stay toasty in my new sweater dress."
This Double Cashmere knit is a dream! It's so soft and thick, perfect for all those chilly days and crisp nights. I immediately knew I wanted a cozy, oversized sweater dress that could be worn off the shoulder. I decided to use one of my favorite patterns with a little modification. I chose the Janie from Petite Stitchery
because of the boatneck option and dramatic bishop sleeves. I then lengthend and banded using the P.S I Love You pattern as a guide (instead of attaching the separate skirt piece from Janie). I love the end result! It's so very cozy and can be dressed up or down! I'll be wearing this off shoulder by day and then layering it up by the campfire on the weekends. Versatility wins my heart every time!"
"The Peacoat Navy Double Cashmere is the perfect colorway to take you into fall through winter. I chose to make the Rebekah from Sonia Estep Designs
and this sweater knit, though substantial, gathered beautifully to create the bishop sleeve.
This sweater knit is so soft against the skin and would be perfect for so many fall and winter garments such as sweaters, cardigans, and sweater dresses. I want to use the all spice for a cardigan for my next project!"
I knew as soon as I got my hands in the “Double Cashmere” that I wanted to make something timeless and delightful to wear. The rayon adds a beautiful drape and the nylon content will keep this cozy number in proper shape for a good, long time. The double knit construction rounds this fabric out with a dreamy, squishy structure! It was apparent to me that this fabric was meant to become the Marlo Sweater by True Bias
—which resulted in the coziest, oversized grandpa cardigan. It is like a blanket that I can wear in public because there are buttons and sleeves! Once my Marlo was complete, I had a smidge under a yard leftover that I was not going to waste. So, I hopped on the sweater-vest train with the Ensemble Patterns, Pierce Vest
On both pieces you can see a subtle, piping-like detail. I achieved this by topstitching my seam allowances at a scant 1/4” with a lightening stitch— paired with the fabric’s natural loft, this really created an unexpectedly delightful detail. My best tips for working with this fabric are to make sure you are using a knit needle (duh?), a walking foot is helpful if you have it, and just take a few minutes with some scraps before you get started to adjust your machine. Once you get that set, you are well on your way to the coziest cloud of a garment! Oh! And my final but most important tip is to get your hands on this fabric."
I could live in this fabric! It is the most luxurious and softest fabric I have ever sewn with. I want it in every color! I sewed the Oliver Sweater by Seamwork
and it was perfect for this fabric! It shows off the volume of the sleeve beautifully and just makes the most perfect sweater to lounge around in or dress up!"
"This sweater knit is soft to the touch, has a nice drape and weight, and best of all this cranberry color is amazing. I think this fabric is great for sweaters and cardigans and made a Cardigan j'One by Pruella
which I think will be perfect for fall, winter and spring."
This fabric really is very unique. It is luscious and thick, but also soft and silky; it truly is like no other fabric that I have ever owned. From the moment I touched this gorgeous knit, I knew I wanted to make something cozy and oversized. I decided to make the Toaster Sweater from Sew House Seven
. I have never made this pattern before, but it has been on my “must-make” list for a couple of years. I did play around with the sizing a little bit in order to achieve the oversized look that I was seeking. I originally size up to a medium, but then I took it in a little bit under the arms. I also adjust the neck a little bit to make it more structured. I am in love with how it turned out! I can hardly wait for the cooler temperatures to roll in, so I can spend all winter in my new sweater!"
"When I first encountered this fabric, I planned for it to be a stand alone fabric. We hadn't yet realized that it was a perfect color match to our Banff Ultra Thick 1x1 Rib Knit. But once we discovered it was, I knew I wanted to sew a garment that utilized both textures. I wasn't sure how well they would behave together, with the rib being a heavier weight than the double cashmere. After considering different patterns for days, I ultimately decided on the Hey June Brunswick Pullover
. I just adored the cowl and button placket details! The result is absolutely beautiful and extremely cozy! The weight difference between the rib and double cashmere did not cause any issues at all. If you love playing with texture, I highly suggest grabbing a coordinating Banff
