ITY Knit Fabric

What is ITY? - 95% Polyester 5% spandex

ITY stands for Interlock Twisted Yarn which is due to the methods used while being manufactured. When ITY is created the manufacturer puts a twist in the yarn to create natural elasticity.  This unique twisting feature also helps the fabric be cool and ultra soft! It’s a silky fabric with a slippery hand. However, being a polyester base it is not as breathable like bamboo or rayon spandex. Therefore ITY is best used in the transition of winter to spring and summer to fall. It is semi-opaque and lightweight. With a springy stretch that provides amazing recovery and drape. ITY is easy to work with but due to its slippery hand it doesn't hurt to add a few extra pins while sewing! Some of our favorite outfits here at Sincerely Rylee Fabrics are maxi skirts, palazzo pants, rompers, and flowy dresses!
