Carmel Light Blue Tencel and Cotton Knit Pique Fabric


Estimated Restock: Fall 2023


Fabric Description

This might be the softest fabric we‘ve ever made.

This 30s single-ply piqué is a beautifully soft and plush take on the timeless polo shirt fabric we all know and love. It has a wonderful geometric knit structure that makes it naturally breathable and lightweight in addition to the fantastic performance of Tencel™. Tencel™ is an eco-friendly wood pulp fiber that’s more absorbent than cotton, and its drape is similar to that of silk and rayon. The inside of this fabric feels like butter on the skin, and the hint of premium elastane adds extra comfort to its easiness. This fresh light blue is an elevated alternative to your sportier polo shirts, and it’s super versatile, too. Don’t hesitate to wear it with an unstructured suit and sneakers or espadrilles.

Recommended Styling: We prefer it with soft details. Our Soft English Spread collar and One Button or Two Button Polo front make a great classic long or short sleeve polo shirt. A Camp collar is also a great option. Slate Horn buttons will provide a more elevated touch.

  • Super soft as advertised, but it makes the shirt feel droopy and unstructured. Not an ideal fabric for a button down collar as suggested.

  • Nice luxe polo shirt fabric. Lightweight but drapes well.

    last month  ·  Bradley in New York, NY

  • This is a super soft stretchy fabric. For me it was too heavy and I didn't like the stretch. It felt like a sweatshirt. I can see how people like it but it is not for me.

    March 2023  ·  Anthony in West Somerville, MA

    February 2023  ·  Daniel in Miami, FL

  • The feel of the fabric was great. The texture on this pique knit seemed slightly uneven, which could either add or detract based on personal preference.

    January 2023  ·  Frederick in Seattle, WA

  • Awesome!

    January 2023  ·  Jeremy in MILWAUKEE, WI

  • Super comfortable. Much better than traditional pique!

    December 2022  ·  Michael in New York, NY

  • I had this made into a long-sleeve popover. It's lightweight but not that sheer. Makes a good substitute for a regular button-down shirt. My shirt came with the collar stays, which helps it look more formal. Color is brighter than the pictures would indicate, which I like. Good contrast to a dark sportcoat or jacket.

    August 2022  ·  David in Hinsdale, IL

  • Overall good, though do worry about long term if it will stretch / not be durable. Length of shirt was a little too much.

    August 2022  ·  Matt in New York, NY

  • Soft on the skin, and soft on the eyes

    August 2022  ·  Noah in Portland, OR
