Polyester tricot is a must-have fabric for many home sewing projects. Why? For starters, the print clarity and detail on the polyester tricot is second to none. The very fine yarns used to make this fabric take even the most detailed print image like a champ. Secondly, it has great physical properties. This fabric has low stretch so it’s easy to work with and provides excellent drape, great ability to form fit an object and a quiet, soft feel. Because of this, you can use polyester tricot to “camo up” virtually any item around your house!
Poly tricot can be used two ways – as a standalone fabric (like for making scarves, loungewear, gun/rod socks, curtains, table runners, aprons, shirting, etc) or as a shell fabric. A shell fabric is used to add a finished layer to an item. Typical shell fabric uses for poly tricot are insulated jackets, hats, gloves, dog beds, upholstery, auto and general seat recovering, gun cases, purses, backpacks, bags and so much more. It also wraps well around and conforms to hard goods, making a drab, plain item into an instant decorative camo piece!

The Realtree® Max-5 Pattern
Built with waterfowlers in mind, new Realtree MAX-5 camouflage is filled with cattails, reeds, cane and grasses to blend into flooded marshes. Plus corn, wheat, oats and sunflowers to hide you in open fields. It has branches, twigs and leaves that work in flooded timber. And with open areas that mimic mud, water, bark and shadows, MAX-5 literally adds another layer of invisibility to camo – no matter where or how you use it.
