  • Jersey, ribbing and sweatshirt new arrivals!

    We stock many patterns here at Ray Stitch, but haven't had the opportunity to make some of them because unfortunately, we didn't quite have the best stretch fabrics and materials in stock. That, however, is a thing of the past!

    Our shelves now boast lightweight cotton/elastane single jerseys in melange colourways, heavyweight cotton/polyester sweatshirting in vivid and classic shades, bright Ponte di Roma knits, as well as incredibly soft fluffy-back cotton sweatshirting in neutral melange shades. To top it off, we have selected some fun, bold plain cotton ribbing and quirky striped cotton ribbing! Our recurring stock includes printed organic cotton interlock from Birch Fabrics, alongside striped cotton/elastane single jersey, heavyweight fluffy-back organic cotton fleece and our delectably drapey bamboo stretch - so, we are well stocked up now for all of our sewing patterns!

    And get this, they all are sustainably-minded in that they are either certified GOTS organic, Öko-Tex Standard 100 certified (testing for harmful substances throughout the whole manufacturing chain) or are renewable materials. They're perfect for babies and children (well, adults too!) for being naturally breathable and hypoallergenic, and free from chemicals.
