Rated 4 out of 5 by kidvelocirapt0r Sample Review
The other swatches I ordered were 8.5" by 8.5", but this one was only 6.5" by 8.5". That's not a problem, but I was disappointed by the stretch. It's supposed to have a 50% 4-way stretch, but it barely stretches at all one way. Otherwise it's ok, lightweight & pretty soft, but I probably won't buy more.

I'm glad I read the review about shrinkage! I pre-washed in Woolite For Darks, and machine dried on delicate cycle. Fabric shrunk 4 inches on a yard. The pre-wash turned this fabric into a very soft medium weight. Loved it so much, I ordered more colors! Will be part of my permanent inventory.

I purchased this to make a maxi skirt with a yoga band top. It was absolutely perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ellie35 shrinks a lot!
This is a very nice weight and has quite a bit of stretchiness. I'm glad I got 6 extra inches because it shrank 6 inches leaving me with exactly 2 yards.
I'm not sure if it would make a great t-shirt unless you created a size bigger as this is more form fitting. You would need to play around with it to find how you want it to drape on you.
But it is a nice fabric and seems like it would last through many washings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SeverelyRussian Great for t-shirts!
I am new to stretch fabrics and have found this fabric to be easy to sew. I pre-washed it and put it through a normal dryer cycle as I would with any t-shirt. A 4x4 inch square that I stitched out before washing came out about 3.5 x 4 inch, so the fabric shrinks lengthwise quite a bit. I would probably skip the washing next time and add extra length because fabric curls so much after being washed, it's hard to lay out and cut. Overall, it is not very stretchy, since it is only 5% lycra. I used regular sewing needles without any problems. Once I get better at this stretchy sewing business, I will buy more of this fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheFabricBeaver LOVE THESE LAGUNA FABRICS
I've bought six or seven different colors from the Laguna line of fabrics, and I keep coming back for more. They make the most comfortable tees and skirts, and they wash well. My only wish is for more colors to choose from.

Thin, cheap-feeling, not as much recovery as you'd expect from 5% lycra, and pills early and often. I expected better from Robert Kaufman.
