Rib knit fabric is an excellent material for clothes making, as it is durable and comes in a long list of pattern prints. Expert hands can turn this fabric into anything from jumpers to scarves to doll accessories. Sewing enthusiasts looking for the right material can choose the fabric's colour and material, and the ribbing type. Cotton gives good breathability, strength, and is lightweight, making it suitable for almost any kind of clothes or accessories. Acrylic, on the other hand, gives the rib knit fabric a soft, wool-like texture. Ribbing types differ mainly in their knitting patterns, and give a garment texture and character. A fabric with 1x1 or 1x2 ribbing retains its shape well thanks to its elasticity, and is good for making cuffs and bands. eBay has many vendors who list almost all types and colours of fabric. Visit eBay to buy rib knit fabric that sewing enthusiasts can turn into future garment masterpieces.
