“Slub” – definitely not the best name we’ve ever heard for a fabric but boy oh boy, when you give our cotton slub jersey pieces a try, you’ll absolutely fall in love! For those of you who like to geek-out about all things fashion, here’s a little more info about cotton slub: (and for those of you who already love it & want to know what’s available, skip this and read below!!) Cotton slub is a fine jersey combined with slub yarn that creates the ultimate texture for any knit garment. ”Slubbed” or nubby yarn is yarn that has soft lumps (areas where the yarn is bunched or wider than it should be) and was initially seen as a defect caused by the automated process of spinning yarn but because of the textures that nubby yarn can create, designers began to create slub yarn purposefully to add interest and texture to garments and upholstery. Best of all, it PRINTS fabulously. (an absolute MUST for Lilly- obv!)
OK, so maybe a little too much detail for you but here’s what you really need to know: these pieces are absolutely adorable and completely effortless. Throw on a printed tee (short sleeve, 3/4 sleeve & long sleeve for any weather) and a pair of jeans, accessorize and you’ll steal the show without a second take. LOTS of options including the Cassie Dress for those who want to take the drama up a notch!
