Suggested Fabrics

One of the best things about the new Denver Top and Hoodie, in our most humble opinion, is it's versatility. Feeling the need for a cozy sweatshirt? Make it in brushed French Terry with a Super Plush lined hood. Or maybe you want something a little more business casual? Make it with hacci and bamboo side panels! A wide variety of different fabrics can be used and combined to make an endless amount of looks, and all that versatility in one pattern sounds A-OK to us! So with that in mind, let’s talk suggested fabrics. These include, but are certainly not limited to:



**Remember: Thinner fabrics with more drape will result in a looser-fitting hoodie. **

With it's relaxed fit, raglan sleeves, side- and sleeve-panels perfect for colorblocking, the Denver Top and Hoodie is such a fun, easy pattern where you can really let your creativity shine. And with all of that versatility comes the potential for a truly endless number of makes, and we can't wait to see what you do with it!
