Travel Knit is a brand name for a knit fabric that is wrinkle resistant so it packs into suitcases and pops out to be worn without needing to be ironed; it usually drapes well and has the right amount of stretch to fit comfortably without binding over long periods, adjusting nicely to 'travel expansion' on your body through long periods sitting on airplanes, in cars, buses, trains, or overindulgence at the resort buffets:) It's not a heavy, bulky fabric so you can pack more pieces into your luggage without adding weight and possibly incurring overage fees with your travel carrier.

It is usually fabric that 'breathes' so you don't overheat in hot or humid conditions but also will keep you warm if the weather turns a bit chilly-it makes a dandy base layer if the weather goes completely wonky on your holiday. Because of its lighter weight, it washes easily in travel accommodation sinks, bathtubs, or shower, then dries quickly on a hanger, hotel over-the-bath pull-out drying lines, or draped over a chair.

Travel Knit is a fantastic fabric that travels very-very well!

Travel Knit can be bought as 'ready-to-wear' (RTW) or you can buy the fabric to sew up your own holiday wardrobe. It usually comes in basic colours so if you want trendy looks, you won't get it from the RTW lines but you can go very creative by piecing the colours to create your own fabrics.

You can build a basic RTW wardrobe then use accessories to add some flair. The RTW lines are usually simple tops or blouses both sleeved and sleeveless, trousers and shorts, skirts in several lengths, and blazer or cardigan type jackets. These can really be versatile pieces that go from a walking tour to the Captain's Table or a nice nightclub-add the accessories like a pretty or bold scarf, necklace, bracelet, and you look fantastic.

I love the stuff, it is very easy to wear, very easy to travel with, and very easy to sew!
