Including a bit of texture in a sewing project can make a dramatic difference, as it often adds much-needed depth to the overall look and feel! Luxe Cuddle® Milan does just that, and our beautiful Dolce collection elevates this already special fabric by creating an almost bi-color look to the pile through a tip dying process. In addition to a luxuriously-high 15mm pile, it’s knitted with elastic so it’s extra stretchy and cascades into a rippling effect.
We measure and sell Milan fully stretched, and in turn, Milan will be sold by retailers to consumers fully stretched. Please note that a one-yard stretched cut will yield about 26 inches relaxed, and a one-yard relaxed cut will measure about 48” when stretched.
This means that if you or your customers are making a throw, you’ll need to purchase about 30% more fabric for the measurement to be correct once it’s relaxed and ready to sew. For example, if you want to make a 60” x 72” back-to-back blanket, you’ll need to buy about 5½ yards of Luxe Cuddle® Milan Dolce (2¾ yards per side).
Besides luxurious throw blankets, Luxe Cuddle® Milan Dolce is perfect for anything from pillows to wearables like infinity scarves — just don’t forget to let it lay relaxed while sewing or cutting to keep measurements accurate!
