You can assess fabrics based on their weight, measured in grams per square meter (g/sqm).  However, it's important to note that the actual feel of the fabric can be subjective and may vary from person to person.


Lightweight fabric typically falls in the range of 70 to 145 grams per square meter (g/sqm). It's great for making shirts, blouses, and other light garments due to its airy and comfortable feel.

Light ~ Medium

Light to medium-weight fabric, ranging from about 140 to 180 grams per square meter (g/sqm), is versatile for making shirts, skirts, dresses, and even light outerwear. Its balanced weight makes it suitable for a variety of comfortable and stylish clothing items.


Medium-weight fabric, with a weight falling between 170 and 210 grams per square meter (g/sqm), strikes a good balance. It's suitable for making outerwear, jackets, skirts, and provides a comfortable option for spring to autumn clothing.

Medium ~ Heavy

Medium to heavy-weight fabric, ranging from about 210 to 270 grams per square meter (g/sqm), is versatile for autumn and spring wear. It's well-suited for making jackets, pillowcases, outerwear, and various other items, offering a good balance of weight for different applications.


Heavyweight fabric, exceeding 260 to 280 grams per square meter (g/sqm), is well-suited for a variety of items. Its sturdiness makes it particularly good for upholstery, ensuring durability and resilience. Additionally, it's a reliable choice for spring and autumn wear, offering both strength and comfort in various applications.
