 Five Features of Premium Cotton

When you think about a project you'd like to purchase fabric for, it is often a great place to start by determining what the best feel and drape of the cotton fabric might be for your specific sewing creation. When shopping for fabric online, this can be especially challenging, because you can't actually reach out and feel the fabric! I am always available and happy to give more descriptions and send a sample of a specific fabric you are considering be it quilters weight cotton, double gauze, canvas, knit! Plus, in this blog, I am going to talk specifically all about premium cotton and some of the wonderful features of this beautiful, high quality fabric!

Our "premium cotton" fabric selection is from a lovely company based in Venice, Florida, called Art Gallery. Art Gallery Fabrics is owned by fabric designer Pat Bravo and her husband Walter. They feature numerous amazingly talented textile artists and print on 100% premium PIMA cotton. You may have heard the words Pima cotton when searching for bed sheets because, like Egyptian cotton, Pima is also of the long-staple variety and also originated in Egypt. "Staple" is an industry term that means fiber and the longer the cotton fiber, the softer and more durable the fabric will be. Art Gallery describes their fabric to have a "superior thread count and fine weave." Their premium cotton fabric is 200 thread count, 44/45 inches wide. This fabric is different from all my other quilting cotton fabrics. As Art Gallery promises, you can "feel (and see) the difference" immediately ~ and here's why:

Vibrant Colors

 Upon unwrapping a new bolt, the colors immediately pop. Apricots, rose hues, coral, indigo, plums, plush mints, and gold. The range of colors in premium cotton fabric are all stunning and rich.

No Pilling

Due to the fine weave of premium cotton, there is a lot less pilling over time that can occur with other soft fabrics.

Soft Natural Drape

 The fine weave of premium cotton fabric allows more fibers to be spun into the yarn creating a lustrous and more natural drape to the fabric.

Light

Premium cotton fabric is one of the lightest fabrics I've ever felt ~ lighter than quilters weight cotton, yet still durable and easy to sew and quilt with.

Silky

The smooth surface of premium cotton fabric creates a silky appearance that is both elegant and eye-catching.
