Woven interfacing – your fabric should still look, feel and move like fabric, albeit a thicker one. A typical woven interfacing may take your quilting-weight cotton up to more the feel of a decor weight fabric. But it still feels like fabric.
You can also get a knit interfacing, called tricot, which can be used on stretch fabrics and may be used to prevent or restrict stretch in areas of the garment to prolong life and shape.
Non-woven interfacing – no grain line, like a felt or fleece. Can range from thin and wispy, through crisp and papery, through to stiff almost like card, or even lofty like a fleece or foam.
Pros and cons – the woven can be expensive and is typically only available in a much smaller range of weights, properties and thicknesses. It leaves your fabric feeling and behaving like fabric and usually fuses well without the wrinkles you can sometimes get from a non-woven.
The non-woven is available is a MUCH wider range and is much more affordable, and more easily available. However it can wrinkle or crease more easily. It can also tear (like paper) and makes the fabric feel less like fabric – which can be a plus depending on your project.
Interfacing are sold by 1/4 metres and will be in one continuous piece.
