What kind of material for jumpers?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Cooking & Crafts : One Thread
A friend is going to sew me some jumpers for daily use around the house. I need to know what type of material to buy for them. I am looking for something that will wear well, and not look faded out after a few times of wearing them. Thanks, I appreciate any help! :) Maggie

I like denim. Doesn't matter if it does fade. Use light weight so it's not so hard to do the seams.

My first choice would be denim but corduroy or a heavy knit would be good,too.

How about some nice flannel for cooler weather? Otherwise my favorites are denim or a heavy cotton knit, too.

A trigger poplin would be a good buy. It is tough, but not too heavy. I need to make some for myself as well--will just have to get busy on it.
