Star Anise Stripe - Cotton Modal Designer Shirting is a first-rate designer shirting fabric. This fabric is not your usual shirting. It was created from a clever blend of Modal (with Cotton) fibres to produce a fabric which will work as hard as you. This makes it the perfect choice for supersmart garments to take you from the office to the restaurant. Modal is breathable and discourages odour production, it is also super strong and does not shrink or distort when washed.
Star Anise Stripe is a stylish fabric woven with alternating 2cm regency stripes of fresh white and rich aniseed hue. This classic striped design has the appeal of a nautical stripe with a rich and spicy twist.
Star Anise Stripe has all the benefits and qualities of silky modal yet excellent stability, and soft drape quality. The cotton content adds a classic fine twill look with the silken sheen of the modal. It has a similar hand to viscose but feels much softer and cooler.
"Modal is often called "the underwear fabric" and some just look to it as an environmentally-friendly textile option. Either way, modal is revolutionizing the fashion industry with its lightweight and breathable nature that takes beech tree pulp and turns it into an eco-conscious, durable option for clothing and housewares."
"Modal’s distinguishing characteristics are its high-wet strength and extra softness. It is sometimes referred to as “as soft as a feather” and “the softest fibre in the world.” In addition to its use in general apparel, its softness makes it especially ideal for wearing against the body. Due to its high-wet strength, Modal can be machine washed and tumble-dried. Modal fibres are dimensionally stable and do not shrink or get pulled out of shape when wet like many viscose rayons."
Star Anise Stripe is perfect for smart/casual garments and is suitable for a plethora of crafting uses too. Make up your favourite shirt pattern, simple shell tops, vest tops, shirtdresses, tunic tops and dresses, tea dress styles with gathered skirts and dropped waists, playsuits, culottes and full-shorts. Cool summer Pyjamas and nightshirts will feel so comfortable made in this first-rate fabric.
Bold stripes are timeless classics and will never date, perfect for creating pieces you can dress up or down depending on your mood or the occasion. Great styles to try include the Merchant & Mills 'All State' Mens' Shirt or Ladies' Dress Shirt 'The Fielder' as well as comfy casual trousers with drawstring waists that will look excellent.
