Jersey is a knit fabric that has many great attributes. It is light and flexible, yet warm and insulating. It is a popular choice for t-shirts and a variety of other apparel. One interesting aspect of jersey is that it can be made from 100% cotton or from a cotton/polyester synthetic blend; it is the knit of the fabric that makes it unique.
