Interfacing

Our wide range of interfacing has been selected to offer the best choice for tailoring, dressmaking, and craft.

Woven interfacing (W) have a lengthwise and crosswise grain and are usually cut on the same grain line as the fabric, allowing the fabric to maintain its natural drape and feel. When cut on the bias woven interfacing will stretch.

Non-woven interfacing (NW) are made from synthetic fibres bonded or felted together to create different weights. Non-woven interfacings have no grain, so pieces can generally be cut to minimise waste – however, care should still be taken when laying out pattern pieces, as non-woven interfacings generally used for dressmaking are stable lengthwise but have a stretch on the crosswise which varies with the weight of the interfacing.

Knitted interfacings (K) are softer than woven interfacing, and have more stretch both lengthwise and crosswise. Knitted interfacings can have an additional warp or weft thread to create more stability, making them particularly suited to tailoring, combining softness and stability to provide structure to a garment without compromising the drape of feel of the fabric.
