Newburyport Organic Cotton/Hemp/Yak Jersey | By The Half Yard
This blend of fibers is nothing short of amazing! Organic Cotton is not only more eco-friendly and safer to wear, but it's softer and more durable too. The hemp content in this fabric adds to its overall strength while also providing natural UV protection and anti-microbial properties without the use of any chemical treatments. Yak has been deemed as a soft and durable alternative to cashmere. The addition of Yak in this fabric serves as an anti-odour and a natural elastic, which prevents the fabric from stretching out over time. Not only is this a wonderful blend of fibers that we can feel good in, but it has also been sustainably sourced and ethically produced by our partner that is OEKO-Tex, Fair Trade, and GOTS certified!
Being a mid-weight jersey knit, this fabric lends itself well to a variety ff garments. Tops and dresses come to mind first, but the skies the limit! Check out the blog for sewing inspiration: Yakkity Yak, Sewing Chat
