Tricot Uni

What is the difference between jersey and tricot?

The funny thing is that there is no difference between jersey and tricot. Jersey = tricot and tricot = jersey.
Jersey is a knitted fabric made from 100% cotton. Jersey is also popularly known as "T-shirt fabric". Jersey fabric is comfortable and stretchy. Perfect for casual or sporty garments such as polo shirts, T-shirts and dresses. Jersey is also perfect for baby clothes. The knitted structure gives the fabric a very elastic quality, making it very easy to work with. It also feels warmer than normal cotton and is therefore more suitable for colder nights.


Breathable fabric 

Jersey is a breathable fabric that allows air to pass through, making it comfortable to wear even in hot weather.


Which fabrics are similar to jersey?


Organic jersey
In terms of composition, organic jersey is similar to jersey. However, the cotton is organically grown. If you see the Oeko-Tex seal next to a fabric, it means that the fabric has been produced using environmentally friendly dyes.


French Terry
French terry is slightly thicker than normal jersey fabric. It is therefore ideal for the autumn and winter season. It is slightly heavier and usually consists of 96% cotton and 4% elastane/lycra.


Summer sweat / jogging
This fabric is slightly thicker than French Terry. And is brushed. The weight is usually the same as French Terry, but because the fabric is made soft, it is a little warmer than French Terry.


Fleece
There are 2 types of fleece: polyester and cotton. Polyester fleece is synthetic and is often used for jumpers, plaids and warm linings. The cotton fleece is a nice thick fabric, similar to summer sweat/jogging. The fabric is brushed.


Cuffs

This fabric is used for sewing a border to a garment fabric. Think of a neckline, sleeve cuffs or a waist trim.


Punta di Roma
This fabric has a more luxurious look. It consists of 70% viscose and is often used for sewing women's clothing such as skirts or jackets.


Interlock jersey
A thicker knit than jersey, which makes the fabric feel a little firmer and warmer. Great for sewing a jumper from. 


Viscose jersey 
This fabric has a very soft drape and is also smoother than cotton jersey. It is an airy fabric that is produced synthetically but is made from a 100% natural product. The yarn is made from tree bark.

Which machine needles are best for sewing jersey?

The Universal Schmetz needles are always the right choice. This needle has a rounded point, also known as a ball point. The needle has a blunt point and pushes the fibres slightly to the side so that the fabric is not damaged. https://herberttextiles.com/haberdashery/machinenaalden


Which sewing stitch for stretchy fabric?

As jersey is stretchy, you should use a stretchy stitch for best results. Otherwise, the fabric will not stretch with you when you wear it and the seam may soon tear. There are several stretchy stitches, but the simplest is a zigzag stitch. Do not pull the fabric too tightly under your hands, but allow it to slide loosely through your fingers.
