Broadcloth Fabric Product Guide

Broadcloth is a plain weave fabric that is lightweight and incredibly versatile. With a similar resemblance to poplin, broadcloth comes in 100% cotton or a poly cotton blend, so there are endless possibilities in terms of uses. We carry Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton Broadcloth which is the best option when you want a quality 100% cotton broadcloth.

Broadcloth is only available in solid colors, but is similar enough in weight to quilting cotton prints to be interchangeable in most situations.

Broadcloth comes in a variety of colors that will match most any project that you have in mind and certain colors come in extra wide 57” widths for larger scale projects. It has a nice drape and very little stretch in any direction.
