Understanding the Weight of Fabric
At Kennard & Kennard, just one of the main reasons fabric stores and manufacturers use our fabrics is first and foremost the quality of the fabric itself. Our fabrics are consistently produced at premium quality, as we manage our supply chain very professionally. The majority of Kennard & Kennard fabrics are an even weight high quality Quilting Cotton.

- 60 x 60 - means there are 60 threads going horizontally and 60 threads going vertically to form a solid weave.
