Ponte de Roma, 11.8oz - Black


Hello My Name Is: Ponte (AKA Ponte de Roma if you're FANCY)
I'm Made of: 68% Viscose, 27% Nylon, 5% Spandex
I Weigh: 400 GSM, 11.8 OZ/SQ.YD
I'm 56/58” or 142/147 CM wide
I'm stretchy! You can stretch me 25% to the right and 25% down.
I'm not super drapey and I'm not see-through. 
Care for Me By: Go ahead and give me a good pre-washing in warm water and a medium tumble dry before you sew me. You will see minimal shrinkage compared to a 100% cotton.  After your garment is sewn wash on a cool or warm wash and a medium tumble dry cycle.

Do NOT be afraid of Ponte. Ponte is your favorite leggings bigger sister. More responsible, a little thicker, more durable, knows better then to show lumps and bumps. You will LOVE this fabric for jeggings, pants that are suitable for the office but feel like they meant for lounging on the couch. Go ahead, make a great dress or tunic. You won't be sorry.
