In my continuing search online for the perfect sweater knit with an Aztec design, I keep encountering Hatchi knit. I've never heard of this term before. Has anyone ever worked with this knit and can tell me what it's like?

I believe Hatchi is the manufacturer, or brand name.

Not sure if it's the manufacturer, because there's such a wide variety of fabrics that bear the name.

I'm guessing it has to do with the type of knit? Every one I've seen has been fairly lightweight (I've never seen a bulky one).

The one's I've used so far have been nice to work with. They don't "slide" like many jersey fabrics do.

I am stumped on this one too. I even went to images on Google looking for an answer. I think it might be of the thinner lighterweight also. an in-between of a sweater knit and a jersey. Hope someone has a more concise answer!

I think it is the manufacturer, b/c I have many different types of knits-some labeled "Hatachi sweater knit", "Hatchi rayon lycra lightweight jersey" ,"Hatchi slub jersey". I got most at fabric.com in the last 5 years, but I have seen them in out LFS and online.

Maybe the knit is made on a certain type of knitting machine? As I look around on the internet there are many (mostly Chinese) distributors, but hard to tell who the manufacturer is. All of these knits I have are very lightweight...not really the type of quality I look for in knits (one of the downsides of online shopping!LOL)

I got some from Fabric.com a while back..they always seem to have lots. As was said, very lightweight..nothing I'd sew for a winter sweater or top. Maybe a camisole or underwear.

The Hatchi knit I've purchased from Fabric.com is heavy enough to make a sweater set out of. It's a lightweight sweater knit for wearing in the Summer or wearing in warmer climates such as we have in Florida.

I've bought it from fabric.com as well as Hancocks and Joann.

There more like a range of weights...tissue, lightweight, and light/medium. It can depend on the fiber content, too. The heaviest one I've seen was a cotton blend.

Thanks for all of your replies. I did check out my local Hancocks and did not see any. The store manager did not know what Hatchi knit was either, and she is quite knowledgeable concerning fabrics. I guess I will have to order some and play with it.
