Light Reactive Prisma Fabric Info.
Lightweight sweatshirt french terry fabric with colour changing novelty design.
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.
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.

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.
The manufacturer advises the following care instructions however we always advise testing a small piece first to make sure you are 100% happy.
Washable at 30°
Iron Setting 1, Max Temp 100°c
Do Not Bleach / Do Not Tumble Dry
Do Not Dry In Direct Sunlight – dry indoors.
Sewing Your Sweatshirt Fabric
Sweatshirting has some stretch to if for added comfort and ease of fit. With this in mind we have popped a few sewing suggestions below.
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 Thread Plus, this is a poly/cotton fibre and stronger but not massively thicker than a ‘standard’ weight thread – perfect for sewing the heavier seams on a sweatshirt.
Interfacing – Vlieseline (Vilene) Stretch Interfacings are created especially for working with fabrics such as French Terry Sweatshirting. They add a little more body to make sewing easier.
