In the world of sewing, the fabric you choose plays a pivotal role in the outcome of your creations.

What is OEKO-TEX 100 Certification?

Before we delve into the advantages of this fabric, let's understand what OEKO-TEX 100 certification means. This certification is a globally recognised standard that ensures textiles are free from harmful substances and safe for human health. When you sew with OEKO-TEX 100 certified fabric, you can be confident that it's gentle on your skin and eco-friendly.

The Marvel of 100% Cotton

Cotton, a natural and breathable fibre, is celebrated for its comfort and versatility. When it's 100% cotton, you're embracing all the goodness of this timeless fabric.

  • Breathability: Cotton allows air to circulate, keeping you cool and comfortable. It's perfect for garments you'll wear all day.
  • Softness: The soft touch of cotton against your skin is a luxury in itself. It's gentle and non-irritating, making it ideal for sensitive skin.
  • Absorbency: Cotton can absorb and release moisture, making it perfect for clothing that can wick away sweat or maintain warmth.
  • Versatility: From casual wear to formal attire, cotton is suitable for a wide range of garments. It's a blank canvas for your creative sewing projects.

The Beauty of Double Gauze

Double gauze is a unique fabric that offers both breathability and durability. It's composed of two thin layers of gauze fabric, connected by tiny stitches. Here's why double gauze is special:

  • Airy and Lightweight: The loose weave of double gauze makes it incredibly airy and lightweight, perfect for warm-weather clothing and comfortable loungewear.
  • Durability: Despite its delicate appearance, double gauze is surprisingly durable and can withstand regular wear and washing.
  • Softness: The fabric gets softer with each wash, making it ideal for cosy baby clothing, swaddles, or delicate adult garments.
