I am very happy to be able to offer these high-quality knits from Zegna and Telio.

Buying Knit Fabrics

Click on the thumbnails below to see a larger swatch. Please be aware that most computer monitors do not display colors 100% accurately. These images are intended to be a reference, not a color matching guide. If you are unsure if the fabric will be the appropriate color, please order a swatch. Returns will not be accepted unless it is flawed or damaged. For an overview of shipping fees, please see the shipping and return policies.

To order, clicking "Add to Cart" will put 1 yard of the fabric in your shopping cart. Additional full yards may be added within the cart. To order a half yard, click the "Add 1/2 Yard" button. Please note: The minimum order is 1 yard. If you order multiple yards or half yards of one fabric type and color, it will come as one piece.

Please contact the store manager, Marcie (marcie@sarahveblen.com), with any questions about ordering.



Knits Swatch Set

Includes swatches of all available knits. The cost of the swatch set will be refunded with purchase of fabric. Cost: $6.50, including first-class shipping within the U.S. and Canada. (SV-K-001)


All Telio knits are extremely high quality. They stand up over time and do not pill or fade, even with regular laundering.

Laundering and Shrinkage: With dry-cleaning, there is usually no shrinkage. If you want to launder your knit garment, which is what I do, be sure to pre-shrink the fabric. Unless otherwise listed below, on the first washing, you can expect 2-3" of shrinkage on the length-of-grain per 1 yard of fabric when washed on a regular cycle in warm water, and dried in the dryer on moderate heat. Once the garment is made, I machine wash using cold water, fluff in a barely warm dryer for about 5 minutes, line dry, then fluff again in a barely warm dryer for about 5 minutes. You should not get any further shrinkage with this method.

La Perla Sweater Knit
A full 55" wide

67% polyester, 31% viscose, 2% spandex

This is an amazing quality sweater knit. It is a jersey/single knit fabric, with the knit stitch showing on the face of the fabric and the purl stitch on the back. It's a medium-size knit stitch, neither bulky nor very small - just a perfect sweater knit for t-shirts, dresses, cardigans, and wraps.

Amount of give/stretch:
On cross grain, 3" stretches to 4"
On length-of-grain, 3" stretches to 3-1/2"

Tencel Novela Knit
60" wide

70% Tencel, 30% wool

This beautiful fine-gauge jersey/single knit is exceptionally lightweight (you can almost see through it) while still being sturdy. Its lovely drape makes it ideal for a soft swing skirt or jacket, or perhaps a top with a luscious cowl neck. Silk jersey makes an ideal lining.

Note: To launder, wash in cold water on a delicate cycle and line dry, fluffing in cool dryer if necessary. Shrinkage is 4" in the length-of-grain per 1 yard of fabric, but there is no subsequent shrinkage and laundering does not adversely affect the hand of the fabric.

Amount of give/stretch:
On cross grain, 3" stretches to 3-3/4"
On length-of-grain, 3" stretches to 3-1/4"

Black (SV-K-106)

$28.00/yard



Zegna makes high-end, quality clothing for men and produces women's clothing under the Agnona for Zegna name. This fourth generation, family-owned Italian business has always been known for the attention to the gorgeous fabrics that they use.

Laundering and Shrinkage: On the first washing, you can expect 1" of shrinkage on the length of grain per 1 yard of fabric when washed on a regular cycle in hot water, and dried in the dryer on high heat. There is negligible shrinkage in the cross grain. There is no shrinkage on subsequent washings, the hand of the fabric is not changed, and there is no color fading.

Light-Weight White Single Knit
56" wide

100% cotton

The fabric feels great against the skin. It has a soft enough hand that it drapes into a beautiful cowl neck, yet it has enough “umph” that it holds it shape for a simple T-shirt.

Amount of give/stretch:
On cross grain, 2" pulls to 3"
On length-of-grain, a very small amount of give.

This white is not stark white, nor is it truly off-white – just a lovely barely muted white that many people can wear. (SV-Z-7800)

$22.00/yard


Light-Weight Black Single Knit
54" wide

Please see the above description.

This is a deep, rich, true black color – not muted or "grayed out." (SV-Z-7801)

$22.00/yard
