Hi I have been asked to make some scrubs and am wondering what fabric to use.  I bought some poly-cotton broadcloth but am worried it may be too thin.  Denver fabrics it OTS on their solids and I can't seem to find them anywhere else.  Any help is very appreciated!

Most scrubs are really lightweight. It's why you see nurses wearing sweaters all year round Smiley

I've made Scrubs for my self, and used just light-weight broadcloth, and after washing the hems rolled up badly, and they were hard to iron the wrinkles out. Store bought Scrubs are not like that at all.

I would suggest something slightly heavier

I've been using either 100% cotton (a real pain to iron out the wrinkles after washing) or a cotton/polyester blend (which sometimes doesn't require ANY ironing). Plus the material is lightweight and inexpensive AND you can choose some really really cute fabrics.

you can use "bi-stretch" that's what is called here in Chile, that fabric never get wrinkles, and is a little, little stretchy
