Christine Jonson's latest swatch collection consists of "more than 70 quality knit and woven fabrics. It also includes the fabric information sheet with the content, care, width, stretch and recovery of each fabric."

The price? $6.

IMO, this is simply the best way to learn about fabrics...see them, touch them, feel them (toss them on the bed and roll in them
)

No affiliation; just a huge believer in fabric swatches for learning about fabrics.

Thanks, Lynn. I just ordered mine. I was totally unfamiliar with this site, so thanks also for another source for knits. Have you used them?

I have (and do) use Christine's knits! My Beloved Berry Rouge rayon/Lycra knit is one of hers, as well as some prints.

Her swatch packets are the best deal around, enjoy playing with yours!

Thank you LynnRowe, this will be fantastic.

Linda at EmmaOneSock just listed a link for purchasing a Pantone color guide. I just ordered that, too, to help wrestle with this still new-to-me online fabric purchasing.

The link is on the EmmaOneSock home page.

I have no idea what Apple thought I was saying so be a Peach and credit anything bizarre to auto correct.

The Pantone guide is really helpful, especially when the fabric store uses the same guide for color descriptions, as several do.
