Art Gallery Knits

This week we filled a gap in our ever-growing knits selection with a huge range of colourful cotton/spandex jersey knits from Art Gallery! These designs span a range of collections from our favourite designers plus a selection of the best solid colours and we think there is something for everyone!

Art Gallery Knits

Art Gallery Knits are 150cm wide and a blend of 95% cotton and 5% spandex. That stretch gives them great recovery, so they work well for garments from sleek wrap dresses to fitted tops to comfy pyjama trousers!

It is also perfect for knickers, like this vest and pants set we’ll be making in class next month with Zoe Edwards! Find all of our Art Gallery Knits in the shop here!
