Cupro is a regenerated cellulose fabric that is made from recycled cotton linter, the fluffy fiber around the plant’s seeds. Since linter fibers are too small to be spun, they’re usually thrown away during cotton production. Cupro, on the other hand, is created by dissolving them into a viscous solution of copper oxide called cuprammonium, hence the name’s origin. Linter can then be spun into new fibers and woven into this smooth fabric. Given its cellulose origin and production process, it’s part of the same family of fabrics as Tencel, rayon, Modal and Lyocell.
This fabric has a sueded finish and is a medium weight. It has a soft drape so would make into a beautiful top, dress, pants or jacket. The polyester content gives it a more stable hand, so less likely to stretch out. This fabric has 40% stretch in the weft (across the grain) and 10% in the warp (vertical).
