This snuggly jersey knit fabric is the perfect match for our Freya sweater or Stella hoodie from Tilly's latest book Stretch! - and it's beautifully soft and cosy to wear! We can't quite describe how dreamy this fabric is - it is sooo soft and strokable and quite a rare find. Louise has already made a Freya mock neck dress with a gathered skirt in the lavender colourway and it is everything! We also think they would look great underneath a denim Cleo pinafore or paired with denim of any kind...dreamy : )

Check out the corn colourway too!
