Fibres and Fabrics Video Series with Verena Erin

fibre and fabrics video series

The fabrics we choose for sewing and wearing garments, household linen, and accessories are very important. Fabric directly affects the comfort and performance of any garment we make.  How we care for our fabric also impacts the environment even more so than others, according to Verena Erin of  My Green Closet. Verena discusses the different textiles available, all with different looks, pros, cons, and sustainable/ethical issues. Verena created this series on My Green Closet to discuss common fibres and fabrics, what the pros and cons are, and what different fibre options are available if you’re trying to make more environmentally responsible purchases.
