Fabric Weight & Printing Methods

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. We do also carry linen cotton blends. As shown in the images below of our fabrics, tight weave and superior yarn structure is of utmost importance to us, ensuring that we provide quilters and sewers with a premium quality product every time.



  1. GSM (also known as gm/2) = grams per square meter and is the metric measurement of the weight of a fabric.
  2. 20S x 20S - refers to Yarn Count - 20 defines the thickness of the yarn. It indicates the coarseness or fineness of a yarn. The thicker the yarn, the smaller the S value of the yarn, for example, the 20S yarn is thinner than the 11S yarn.
  3. 60 x 60 - means there are 60 threads going horizontally and 60 threads going vertically to form a solid weave.

Digital Print Cotton

Smaller Print Run Quantities 


Digital fabric printing on 100% cotton quilting fabric is a process involving rolls of fabrics being printed by a large format ink-jet printing machine.

Just like your office computer printer, this fabric printer contains a printing head made up of many fine nozzles, which squirt very tiny droplets of coloured inks onto the pre-treated cotton fabric.



Screen Print Cotton 

Larger Print Run Quantities


Screen printing on quilting cotton for Kennard & Kennard is a printing technique where the printing company creates separate screens for the individual colours in a fabric design. These screens are placed on top of the fabric before each ink colour is applied separately. The individual colours are often seen on the selvedge in a series of different coloured circles.
