Light Reactive Prisma Fabric Info.

Cotton rich jersey fabric with magical Light Reactive design. The fabric shows one design in 'standard indoor' light and displays an array of colourful shades when is then exposed to the UV rays in sunlight. Perfect for a range of clothing and other projects, the Light Reactive fabric can be washed, dry cleaned and ironed.

Please be aware this is a super quality fabric but it is a novelty effect. While it will wash and keep its properties for quite sometime eventually it will fade. We have washed sample pieces up to 10 times with little change to the finished effect. However this can vary. Further washing info below in the Washing Instructions Tab.

Although it is a novelty, to give you an idea of the quality, the same type of fabric has been used in garments by a large, 'up-market' high street fashion chain - so although you must exhibit some care the chain was happy to use the fabric.

Other Light Reactive Fabric Designs available.

Washing Information

However it is very important to Not Dry This Fabric In Direct Sunlight.

Light Reactive Fabric Ordering & Offers

The fabric is priced per metre.

To order simply add metres to your basket - we will cut as one continuous length. Half metres are available by entering 0.5 (half metre), 1.5 (one and a half metres) etc.

Redcutions available for longer length purchases.

Recommended Sewing Thread

We recommend sewing with 120s Polycore General Thread – this has the ideal combination of strength and thickness. It is also perfect for hand or machine use and will still run even when sewing at high speeds.

This is the thread that is included if you 'Add A Matching Thread'.

Sewing Your Jersey Fabric

Along with the actual Jersey Fabrics we are pleased to offer you all the 'bits and bobs' around the edges that make sewing Jersey easier and much more effective:

Needles - Stitch with Jersey Ballpoint Machine Needles. The ball of the needle parts the Jersey fibres rather than piercing them to help ensure the elastic quality remain intact.

Thread - Stitch with Empress General Purpose Thread, this is a poly/cotton fibre. Alternatively if you would prefer to work with a pure cotton option Empress 100% Cotton Thread will also stitch perfectly.

Interfacing - Vlieseline (Vilene) Stretch Interfacings are created especially for working with fabrics such as Jersey. They add a little more body to make sewing easier.
