As soon as I started developing the Jarrah sweater pattern I became obsessed with finding the best sweater fabric. I have piled my stash high with gorgeous sweatshirting and it’s been a real joy to pull out lovely pieces to make samples and sweaters for myself with!
If you’re feeling stumped about where to find your own gorgeous sweater fabric, I’m here to help! Here is my go-to list of places to buy great sweater fabrics. If I’ve missed any awesome ones make sure to leave a comment below and let me know.
I hope you find this list super helpful for sourcing great fabrics for your Jarrah sweater and future projects.
I shop at their Nedlands store, but they do have an online store as well. I have used the fuzzbuster fleece for the Jarrah View B sample as well as the Mini Briar sweater samples. It’s good quality and they always have matching ribbing.

I discovered Maaike’s store a few years ago now and became instantly obsessed. She stocks a gorgeous range of fabrics and they are always of great quality in beautiful prints and colours. Her sweater fabric choices are unbeatable if you ask me as she also stocks the amazing See You at Six range including matching ribbing. We bought the green and nude pink sweatshirt fabric for our View A and View C Jarrah sweaters from her store.
Oh you absolutely must take a look at Selvage’s knit options. With such a beautiful range of prints and solid colours, you’ll find it hard to decide which one you like best!
The Fabric Store
This store has a great reputation for a very good reason, they just sell fantastic fabric. Their online store has a lovely selection of sweater fabrics including some gorgeous Liberty of London sweatshirting (I bought this one and can’t wait to use it). The one negative would be that I could only see one ribbing, so you may need to try and find matching ribbing elsewhere.
Crafty Mama’s Fabrics
One of our newsletter friends has recommended Crafty Mama’s for their amazing array of Sweater Knit and French Terry supplies. They’ve got an wonderful selection of prints and solid colours including some organic options that are perfect for Jarrah and a really extensive range of ribbing too!
See You at Six
My absolute favourite french terry sweatshirt fabrics are See You at Six designs and I WANT TO BUY THEM ALL. I cannot stop stashing them! If you can’t find their fabrics at a store close to you, try ordering from their online store – they still have all the prints i used in our Jarrah samples!

The wonderful crew at L’oiseau Fabrics have got some beautiful choices in almost every type of fabric you could think of for Jarrah. They have a wonderful range of organic French Terry solids and even organic ribbing; as well as a great range of sweatshirt and French Terry options for you in prints and solid colours.
