Cotton Slub Fabric

What is Cotton Slub Fabric?

  •  Cotton slub is a type of cotton fabric, which contains slight lumps and imperfections, with a rough and uneven texture.
  • These lumps are due to the process prior to weaving the cotton where the cotton is twisted, creating irregular twists. This results in a unique fabric with a nice texture to it.
  • Cotton slub shrinks about 1" after one wash.
  • Light and airy and doesn't cling to the body.

History

  • When fabrics were created by hand back in the 19th century, ‘slub’ was a term that referred to the preparation process of wool before spinning.
  • Spinners would twist the fibers of wool together by hand to create yarn, and different thicknesses would appear uneven on the finished garment, and became known as ‘a slub’ .
