Crafty Mamas has THE BEST knit fabrics in Australia...

There, I've said it now! But we really do!...have you seen the delicious new season HILCO knits? Mixed with our regular stocks ...what an awesome combination!

For those not familiar with the knit fabrics we stock at Crafty Mamas...

These are from the German textile company HILCO and are of the highest quality. Many have achieved Oeko-Tex certification.

 There is a reason HILCO fabrics are favoured by European designers...

Their colours are brilliant and their composition of cotton/elastomeric makes them comfy to wear, but with the "zing" factor so they do not stretch out of shape ( ie; baggy knees!). After washing kids clothes for 20 years, I've seen some limp garments! But these are well worth the extra money in terms of longevity, colour and quality. They are perfectly suited to children's clothing.

Each season HILCO releases variations of Campans and Campantes...they look excellent together or all mixed up. 

They are not cheap, but one "feel" and you'll see why we all rave about them. 
A good economical option is to use Campans mixed with the other world famous Crafty Mamas knit...

STELLA is manufactured here in Australia, and comes in many colours for you to mix and match with the other knits in store. STELLA is a cotton/elastomeric composite knit so again you get brilliant recovery -so great for leggins, in place of ribbing, and as yoga style waistbands, or as your main garment.
Be warned though, once you've used STELLA, you'll never use another!

Oh! STELLA has recently had a 21% price drop too!! I should mention that!

Happy Sewing!
