What Season is Best for Chambray Fabric?

A light and breathable fabric, chambray is an excellent choice for spring and summer months especially. But because it is so light, it can also be layered under heavier pieces, like wool, for colder months.

The Difference Between Chambray Fabric and Denim Fabric

Both denim fabric and chambray fabric are breathable, with a mix of white and dyed threads creating their unique appearance,  but chambray’s weave alternates one over one (plain weave), whereas denim’s weave wraps over two or more threads (twill weave). This makes chambray even thinner and softer than denim, while denim has more natural structure and thickness!
