Do you know what GSM stands for? Does choosing the correct fabric weight for your creation leave you baffled? You're not alone!


Tons of our customers ask us what fabric weights are most suitable for the type of product they want to make (which is why we've added a handy "fabrics by use" section to our site), but to help a little further, we've also put together a handy infographic for understanding fabric weights, to ease those issues!
