Cosy Corduroy

Malbers Fabrics Corduroy

Corduroy is one of those sturdy, reliable fabrics that sewers tend to take for granted. A cousin of velvet (the original French cord du roi means “king’s cord”), this is a fabric we think of today more in connection with children's clothing rather than garments for everyone. But current fashion designers are taking a new look at this affordable staple and savvy sewers should too. Corduroy is soft and very easy to work with.
The ribs, or wales, are what gives corduroy its distinct quality and the number of wales lets you know what kind of cord you’re dealing with. When you see a wale number given it’s telling you there are that many ribs per inch so the higher the wale number the finer the wales will be. Classic Corduroy typically has 14 wales per inch.
It has a warm and cosy feel so it is ideal for clothing for the Autumn or Winter. Here at Malbers Fabrics we have a great range of different corduroys in a variety of colours for you to choose from.
