Chestnut – Sierra Cotton Waffle Thermal – 42″ – 11 oz
Chestnut is a new favorite color for us. A deep reddish brown that is a must have for earthtone lovers. Our Sierra thermal is a cut above the basic variety. Plushy, soft, and comfy, it features distinctive waffles that are much bigger than the classic waffle variety. At 11 oz/sq yard, it is our heaviest waffle: a very substantial sweater weight for garments beyond basic layers. With its exaggerated texture that is easy to admire from a distance, this fabric has a lot of cool factor and is meant to shine as its own piece. Make a long sleeve henley dress, lounge pants, or even a shirt jacket.
MATCHING RIB: We also carry a matching rib (see later photos) you can purchase as add-on to this product in 1/4 yard increments (scroll down). The rib is 100% Cotton, 46″ Wide, and 9 oz/sq yard or 308 GSM. It is a 2×2 and 10 wale, and has a horizontal stretch percentage of 100%. Its weight and drape match our Sierra very well. But if you find it too thin compared to Sierra, we recommend either 1) triple fold instead of double fold your band, or 2) adding a single layer of knit interfacing. A quarter yard is usually sufficient for trim application in cuffs and neckbands, but you may need more for wider bands and waistbands.
CARE NOTES: This fabric has been professionally laundered to remove most of the shrinkage, which for thermals can be quite substantial. No prewashing necessary.
