Jersey fabric is knitted with interlocking loops of yarn, making it stretchier than a woven fabric where the yarns criss-cross perpendicular to each other. Jersey, which is made from cotton, is normally a fine single knit with an obvious right and wrong side, but different knit constructions can produce a double faced fabric which is more stable with less stretch. The cotton fiber may be used on it's own, or mixed with Lycra spandex. Cotton jersey doesn't fray, but the edges tend to roll after being stretched or ironed. The stretch properties of cotton jersey make it ideal for t-shirts, tops, nightwear, and underwear, and it's perfect for dresses and skirts because it drapes nicely.
