Fabric Weight: Deciphered!

By Oliwia 3 months ago 118 Views No comments

120 GSM, slub, twill, all this fabric lingo is on par with Enigma code...

When browsing our site, you probably have a project already in mind. But what in tarnation is the most suitable fabric?!

First things first, the acronym GSM is short for "(G)ram(S) per square (M)eter". It is the most commonly used measurement for fabric weight, however "Ounce per Square Yard" is a close second, for those of you who prefer the imperial system.

Now, the vast majority of the fabric we stock is a 100% quilting weight cotton 150-160gsm but we also stock cotton linen mix fabrics. Cotton is of course made from the fluffy cotton plant. Linen, on the other hand, is made from flax stems. If you can't get your head around this like me, check out Victoria & Albert Museum's take on it below!
