This stretchable 100% polyester fabric from Suzanne Tick is both soil and stain repellant. Close Knit utilizes a unique stitch pattern that creates a striking three-dimensional effect. Designed for upholstery use. In its relaxed state the fabric may exhibit a crease down the center of the goods due to the nature of circular knit manufacturing. Close Knit is not suggested for large pieces of furniture without a mockup or full width piece being viewed for fabrication approval.
