Fabric Information:

This is a pattern designed for knit fabrics

For best results please choose medium weight knits with at least 50% horizontal stretch and minimal vertical stretch.  As this is designed to be close to the face and covering the mouth/nose it is best to choose natural breathable fabrics such as Merino wool in mid weights and Merino Nylon blends.  Other fabrics such as French Terry, Hatchi, Sweater knits and Polar Fleece or even cotton knits can be used but used at your discretion as they may not have breathability or wicking and will result in your hood being uncomfortable to wear (sweaty).  The fabric you choose may also be dependant on your end use.  There is more information on this in the sew-a-long video - also please see the "More Information" tab for further details.
