Sleek and opaque. Great for leggings. I have used Olympus before and it holds up really well!
Great feel, easy to sew
I made a pair of GS Sundial Leggings in this and it sewed up dreamy. Minimal slippage & easy to cut. These feel great on - the fabric is compressive & supportive but not uncomfortable. I do have the same "issue" or call out as the other reviewer, there is a burgundy/reddish tinge to the fabric when it is in sunlight. You can't see it out of direct sunlight, and it's not REALLY noticeable - but it definitely is there. Not sure if our fabrics are from the same dye lot and that might be why we both experience it or if it's a byproduct of this type of material. I would still buy again because it feels great on - but important call out if you're looking for a true pitch black fabric.
Good for leggings!
I made a pair of leggings. Opaque and sews up well. I did notice a reddish tinge on some of the material, which somehow shows up more on the waistband than the legs. It bugs me a little that the black doesn't match. That being said, I would buy this again and hope that it was maybe a particular cut. It is a good weight.
