What is Viscose Jersey?

21 Aug, 2017

Viscose Jersey is a knitted fabric. The type used in Amanda Monique dresses is made up of 95% viscose and 5% elastane/spandex. It is super soft to the touch, light to mid-weight, stretchy and drapes beautifully, making it the perfect choice for comfortable casual dresses.

What is Viscose though? We've all heard of elastane, or spandex, or lycra, but viscose is a bit less commonly known.

Viscose is actually a type of rayon which is a man-made fibre. It shares similar properties to cotton, but is manufactured from regenerated cellulose.

Other benefits of viscose include:

  • Retains brilliant colour
  • Comfortable
  • Moisture absorbent (more so than cotton or linen)
  • Breathable

Hopefully this has given you a better understanding of what viscose jersey is and why it has been chosen for our garment production.(


To take the best care of your viscose jersey dress, follow these care instructions:

  • Cold machine wash on delicate cycle with like colours
  • Do not soak, bleach or rub
  • Do not tumble dry
  • Dry flat in shade
  • Gentle iron inside out
  • Do not dry clean
