Terry Cloth fabric is a soft and absorbent fabric that features a towel like raised texture across the entire fabric on both sides. Woven in a terry style weave with 100% natural and hypoallergenic cotton fibers, Terry Cloth fabric is made by weaving a single weft thread through two separate warp threads. This weave structure creates soft loops, also known as piles, that protrude from the base of the Terry Cloth fabric and increase absorbency. Terry Cloth fabric measures 45 inches in width, is 1.35 millimeters thick, has a 310 GSM, and weighs approximately 11 ounces per linear yard. A medium to heavy weight, double-sided thick fabric, Terry Cloth has a full, heavy drape when it is hung.

Use Terry Cloth fabric to sew comfortable apparel and decors. Make insulating and hypoallergenic garments with Terry Cloth fabric like bathrobes, swaddles, and apparel for infants.

    Terry cloth fabric

    I ordered two different colors, light pink and royal blue. I was fabric as soon as I receive, they way I don't have to worry about shrinking. The blue washed well and was what I expected. The pink looks dirty, almost aged. Disappointed. I am making hooded ponchos for my grandkids when they get out of the bath, so I will still use.

    Christmas Robe

    I ordered the terry cloth fabric because my granddaughter wanted a terry robe for Christmas. The website had lots of great color choices and the quality of the terry cloth was just right for a cozy bathrobe.

    Great from start to finish with fast service. Read some of the reviews saying was too thin. Bought anyway, and the person for whom I made the towels was very, very pleased. Color was very nice. So a 5 star review.
