€14,00 EUR

A silky soft ponte with a firm hand, yet soft elastic stretch and recovery. Colour is warm sand with contrasting black knit to add texture. This ponte is perfect for dresses, skirts, trousers, tops and cardigans where you want a softer touch than you get from a regular ponte.

Ponte (also known as Ponte Roma, Punto di Roma etc.) is a double-face jersey in a soft and staple quality with firm stretch and excellent ability to return to its original shape when stretched. It is heavier than a regular jersey, because it is double-face and because it has a more dense texture.

A real ponte generally contains 20-30% nylon, because this is the fibre required to bind the two layers and ensure the characteristic staple stretch. Most other ponte qualities are made with viscose or polyester, but this one is made with TENCEL fibres - so besides from being gorgeous to look at and touch, it is also made with earth-friendly fibres.

Tencel – also known as lyocell – is a sustainable fibre, regenerated from wood cellulose. Tencel has natural anti-bacterial and moisture wicking properties and is great for sensitive skin due to its comfortable wear. 

The Tencel used for this this fabric is made by Lenzing in Austria and comes with sustainable certification. Find out more about Lenzing TENCEL™ Lyocell in our blog: Everything you need to know about Tencel and Modal.
