Terry cloth is one of the most common fabrics around. It’s embraced not just by sewists and quilters, but professionals ranging from car detailers to restaurateurs as well. It’s literally everywhere, and most of us around the world use terry cloth in our bathrooms as bath towels and washcloths due to how absorbent and durable it is.
But let’s say you’re interested in using terry cloth for your next sewing project, or have already tried and things didn’t go as planned. We’re guessing you’ve done some research online, typing “common terry cloth problems” into Google and getting limited results.
Frustrating, we know.
Here at Shannon Fabrics, terry cloth is one of our specialities — we offer several terry cloth colors and weights in waffle terry, Turkish terry and terry velour. And despite loving this versatile, durable fabric, we admit terry cloth is not without its share of unique problems and concerns.
