Frotté

Frottétyger följer med dig hela livet. Småbarn älskar att mysa i en stor härlig handduk efter badet och vi vuxna slappnar gärna av i en härlig mjuk badrock efter ett bad. Det klassiska frottétyget erbjuder vi i fler än 25 olika färger. Det kallas även valkad frotté. Tack vare sugförmågan är det rätt kvalitet när du vill sy en personlig handduk, en stor duschhandduk eller en badrock för barn eller vuxna. Stretchfrotté kan du använda till dra-på-lakan eller bekväma barnkläder. Till svettiga idrotter kan du sy ett pannband av frotté, för det absorberar svett. Till sommaren syr du strandklänningar av färgglada frottétyger.

Towelling shopping guide

Wrapping up in a cosy bathrobe after a bath or lounging in the sun on your custom-made beach towel - everything’s possible when you sew with towelling fabric. But what is towelling and why should you use it for your project? You can find out more about towelling fabric in our towelling fabric shopping guide.

What is towelling?

Towelling, or terrycloth, refers to a textile with special absorbent qualities and a pleasant hand, mostly used for home textiles. It’s characterised by its loops, which give the fabric volume and can absorb a relatively large amount of moisture.

We differentiate between different kinds of terrycloth. Some terry towelling is made by weaving thread through a normal weave to create loops. In other terry fabrics, the loops are created by a weaving process. This different production process is more time-consuming, making the woven terrycloth the more expensive option. Towelling is also categorised by thread type, thread length and weave into three weight categories: light (350-499g/m2), medium (500-599g/m2) and heavy (over 600gm/2) - generally, the heavier the fabric, the higher the price tag. These differences are generally not made in everyday life - we usually just say towelling or terrycloth.

Terrycloth fabrics are mostly used for towels and bathrobes, and for any other items that need to be absorbant. They are mostly made of cotton but can include a proportion of polyamide or other microfibres. This would improve the drying time of your handmade towels or bathrobe.

There are four basic options:

- Fulled terry is soft and fluffy It’s more voluminous thanks to loose loops made from soft fibres. It is very absorbant.
- Twined terry has a sturdy hand. The twined loop threads create an almost massage-like effect.
- Velour terry has a very soft surface, as the loops have been cut.
- Knit towelling is relatively new. It’s knitted rather than woven, and combines good absorbency with a massage-like feeling, sturdy loops and softness.

Helpful tips for working with towelling

Depending on the weight of the fabric, you will need a medium to large needle (75 to 90).

If the loops are causing problems when sewing, like getting caught on your needle or presser foot, you can use a thin sheet of tissue paper or even baking paper to help things along. Simply pin it to your fabric, and sew over it with a stitch length of 2 to 3. When your seam is done, you can simply tear off the paper. If little scraps of paper are stuck in your stitching, they’ll disappear as soon as you wash your finished project.

How to care for towelling

In general, towelling can be washed at 60°-95°. The higher the proportion of polyester, the faster your fabric will dry. However, this means slightly less absorbency.

High-quality towelling fabrics are usually made from cotton, so they are not 100% shrink-resistant. Therefore, terrycloth isn’t as thickly woven as other fabrics. This shrinking process is often between 3 and 5 percent for terry towelling made from cotton.

If you use too much detergent, it can get stuck in the fibres and harden the material, making the fibres lose their lustre. However, using too little detergent can also result in a hardening of the towelling fibres, as the wash doesn’t contain enough descaling agents. It’s best not to use fabric softener when washing towelling, as it prevents the fabric from absorbing moisture. High-quality terrycloth and velour towelling will release quite a bit of fluff at the beginning and when cut. You can avoid excess fluff that might clog up your washing machine by not overfilling your machine.

Any snags can simply be cut away from the fabric. You don’t need to worry about creating any ladders.

- Wash at 60°-95°
- Watch out for lint and shrinkage!
- Make sure to use the right amount of detergent to keep your towelling soft; don’t use fabric conditioner
- You can simply cut off snags, don’t worry about ladders

Our tip for washing with hard water: Towelling can suffer from a build-up of limescale over time, making the fabric hard and scratchy. If you leave your fabric overnight in a bucket of three parts warm water and one part vinegar, the limescale will dissolve. Then simply wash as normal.

To sum it up...

Terrycloth is a very absorbent fabric. If you’ve decided to sew something that could use these properties, we have a whole range of different towelling fabrics to chose from. What you need to keep in mind before you buy:

- There is a difference between terry towelling and French Terry
- Velour towelling and fulled towelling are very soft, while twined terry is more stable
- Towelling can be washed at high temperatures, but can release quite a lot of fluff for their first few washes
