Knits are back in a big way. One of our favorite suppliers is Art Gallery. They have a great selection of contemporary prints. We always prewash our knits and allow about 1/4yd for shrinkage. Give them a try...you'll love knits again. Alexander Henry has even gotten into knits. We have a wonderful selection of Bamboo knits that you will want to try. I would allow 1/4yd for shrinkage just to be safe.
