Slinky knit. It's medium weight, full bodied and drapes beautifully. Has very slight ribbed textured throughout the face.

I've bought that particular fabric one time when I was buying a lot of different slinky fabrics for my business. It's very drapey, and a classic slinky, but the dots are flocked on, and I had trouble sewing over them. The thread on my serger kept breaking, and by the time I was done with the jacket in that fabric I was gritting my teeth. Just something to keep in mind. Just to let you know, I buy a lot of slinky, and that is the only fabric that ever happened with, normally flocked slinky is fine to sew with.

Jorgel,

Just wondering if you care to share your slinky sources with us.

I have found slinky to be a heavy fabric.

Slinky does have a tendency to grow lengthwise during the day. I put a lightweight clear elastic in the shoulder seam. A tshirt made from slinky is a fast and easy serger project. I wash and dry mine in the washer and dryer, roll it up and put it in the dresser drawer.

They are both still going strong and have had quite a bit of wear. One is made from the more expensive type of slinky and the other is made from cheap swap meet stuff.
