Default Best Solids

Hi Guys,

what range do do you think has the best fabric solids..... I ask because I would like to order some fabrics from the U.S. and would like to know what you all think.

hugs

Caroline

I like the Kona cottons for the variety of colors. But, I love the Northcott Solids for the feel and the extra threads. It just doesn't seem to fray as much.

Moda Bella solids or Kaufman Kona solids are the Two brands I use all the time.

I've never tried the Northcott solids, but will plan on doing so. I've been cutting some Michael Miller cotton couture tonight, first time I'm using it; it feels very nice and silky.

Moda Bella; it's a denser fabric than Robert Kaufman Kona and has a smoother hand to it as well. But Kona is a close second.
