Do you mean tubular jersey? You can just go ahead and slit it, and use your yardage for any pattern that calls for a jersey knit.

I know a few people on Craftster have mentioned using it for a no-seam Infinity Dress...

OMG! Thanks for the Infinity link! I was wondering where everyone knew about this from...

Anyway, the reason why it comes in a tube is that it is knit fabric, and most of the time when something is knitted, it is in the circular/tube shape. This is especially true with mass produced knits. My mom had a "knitting machine" where you turn the handle, and a series of hooks revolve around moving up and down... it was awesome, and I wish I had it!
