Stylish Knit Fabrics with Flexible Design 

Sunbrella Knits expand design possibilities for indoor and outdoor furniture construction thanks to their supple interlocking-loop construction. Featuring multi-way stretch and varying degrees of dimension, Sunbrella Knits effortlessly hug the edges and curves of furniture frames and cushions resulting in a perfect fit. 

Defined by their more refined texture and subtle depth, patterns Tuck and Ravel are small and large-scale knits with a basket style design. Tuck and Ravel are inspired by the relaxed texture of piqué knits and created using marled and heathered yarns.  

The three-dimensional pillowing of small-scale Dot and large-scale Wave is achieved by interlocking two layers of knits with a plush filler in between, creating a luxurious quilting effect. Knitted with marled and heathered yarns, Dot and Wave have a high level of depth. 

  1. Sunbrella upholstery fabrics have been verified in an independent laboratory and tested for harmful substances according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®. 
  2. Sunbrella upholstery fabrics are GREENGUARD certified for low chemical emissions, contributing to healthy indoor air quality.

From light stretch to a plush quilted effect, Sunbrella Knits combine the aesthetic of a designer upholstery fabric with the relaxed feel of a knit.

  • Abrasion Resistant

    Sunbrella Knits are engineered to be long-lasting with unwavering strength without feeling heavy or stiff. While keeping its flexible design, Sunbrella Knits withstand wear and exposure to the elements.

  • Stain & Water-Resistant

    Sunbrella fabrics are engineered with built-in moisture resistance. With a protective finish that won’t wash away, even after daily use, Sunbrella fabrics stand up to life’s toughest messes.

  • Fade Proof

    Traditionally dyed fabrics can fade over time because the pigment only covers the outside of the yarn fibers. Sunbrella fibers are dyed all the way through with stabilized UV and color pigments; preventing Sunbrella Knit fabrics from fading, as well as becoming damaged and breaking down.

  • Easy to Clean

    Engineered to maintain their integrity, Sunbrella fabrics are easy to clean. When life happens, blot spills with a clean, dry cloth and use mild soap and warm water to remove. For even the toughest messes, our fabrics are safe to clean with a diluted bleach solution.

That’s why Sunbrella is confident in standing behind every fabric with comprehensive warranties, including a 5-year limited warranty covering loss of strength or color due to normal usage and exposure for upholstery, specialty, and decorative shade fabrics.
