    You are brilliant! I’d be curious to see some sort of environmental assessment of each fiber, maybe in a comparative analysis of natural vs synthetic, to see which one is less damaging/better for the environment 🍃 Do you have any opinions on which fabric is “best” Justine? 🙂

    Modal is a typeof rayon semi-synthetic cellulose fibre however, the process to produce these fabrics is highly toxic and chemically saturated . I'm just wondering what are the better fabrics to wear do you recommend natural fibres?

    As I have got older I have developed a terrible allergy caused by polyester and other synthetics. I have researched these fabrics and according to the experts all synthetics are toxic. I can only wear cotton silk linen and viscose .The UK is awash with polyester clothes, fabrics, furniture ,carpets ,duvets and pillows. There is also formaldehyde in the dyes! I think we are slowy being poisoned!

    When I discovered modal and lyocell, my world shook. I'm glad they are good fabrics. There are times I may not like a garment on a hanger or even online, but if i see it's made of lyocell or modal, I'll almost always take a chance on it. I love the way both fabrics feel on my skin. Also, I've noticed, chances are it looks better on me than the model. They make modal sheets, too, but I'm not into that because I need texture from my sleep sets.

    Justine, merci encore pour ces vidéos charmante et didactiques ! Je voudrais savoir si tu pourrais nous expliquer pourquoi certains vêtements "boulochent " et d'autres non. L'exemple le plus incompréhensible et le plus frustrant pour moi est celui des pulls en cachemire (100%) certains sont plus résistants au "boulochage" que d'autres et certains sont importables après seulement une journée ! Je trouve aussi que les lainages mélangés boulochent beaucoup mais les 100% laine parfois aussi et même si le pull parait assez "sec". J'ai regardé si tu avais déjà fait une vidéo sur ce sujet et je ne l‘ai pas trouvée mais peut-être en as-tu déjà parlé au décours d'une vidéo que je n'ai pas encore vue. (Je vais toutes les regarder !).

    I can't wear anything that isn't soft cotton or jersey. I get blisters wherever the fabric touches my skin 😭. I don't have too many options when it comes to clothes due to this…

    Hey, I was wondering if you could tell me what exactly “lawn cloth” is? I’m looking to make a casual jumpsuit and I found lawn cloth in a pattern that I like, but I’m ordering it online so I don’t know if it’s right for what I’m making

    Hi Justine! As always, love these informative videos:) Can you teach us what to do when a wool sweater starts to peel? What to do when you find holes in a wool scarf that has been sitting in the drawer? And how to take care of wool garments?

    Hi Justine, thanks for all your videos. I have learned so much.
    Just one questions, which are the best fabrics to use for summer?

    I love Tencel, but it's so hard to find clothing made from it. I have like three pieces and I am actively looking for it every time I'm in a shop,because the pieces I have are amazing in terms of quality and wear.
    Is there any specific reason as to why it's so rare to find?

    Hi Justine, can you help me with some terms like: shantung and virgin wool? I also some brands mention how their expensive garments are made with Italian yarns or yarns spun in Scottish mills. Why do they make much difference in terms of quality/cost? Besides, what do you think of blended materials? My favorite T-shirt happens to be a 30% cashmere- 70% cotton blend and it is surprisingly light, soft, drapes and holds up so well with washes.
