Bamboo Terry

We have some new French Terry knits in the store, made from a silky blend of rayon from bamboo, cotton, and a little spandex for good stretch and recovery.

If you're not familiar with French Terry, don't be mistaken; it's not the same fluffy terry cloth that towels are made from! French Terry is a fine, supple dress-weight knit that looks similar to a jersey on the right side, with tiny loops covering the reverse.

Here's the reverse side of a French Terry knit. Cozy softness!

We have this fabric in tons of great colors! Here are a few.

Come take a look, and feel how soft it is for yourself!

Luscious printed silk

We have some utterly gorgeous new bolts of silk in the store, and these eye-catching silk prints are getting a lot of attention!

This delicate floral charmeuse would make a lovely blouse.

Her'es a gossamer printed silk sheer with a large border print of bright feathers.

This colorful chiffon has a hint of metallic silver.

And finally, take a look at this stunning satin-faced chiffon. Love the little yellow butterflies!

There's always so much more to see! Come in and take a look!

Harris Tweed

New at Treadle, we have a selection of genuine Harris tweed. This classic, beautiful wool fabric has been esteemed for generations. In plaid, check, solid, and herringbone weaves, each fabric is a dynamic blend of softly heathered colors.

From the Harris tweed website:
Soft, tactile, breathable, warm, colourful, sustainable, adaptable...the old image of coarse, scratchy, dour tweed simply does not exist these days. While still retaining its heritage of practicality and longevity, the Harris Tweed of today extols all the qualities and virtues of a truly luxury 21st century fabric.
