Default travel knits

I've just gotten into the travel knits--Citiknits, Slinky, Units, Coldwater Creek, etc. I previously stayed away from them because I was afraid they would be too clingy but I love them! They are year-round wearable and do not wrinkle and are very light weight. They are everything I was looking for so that I can pack several outfits into a carry on and not spend an entire evening ironing them when I get to my destination. Anyone else a fan?

I have a long black dress made from that material, and I am thinking of packing it for my next cruise!
It's good to know this stuff doesn't need ironing. I HATE to iron!

Try Chico's as well, they carry these type of knits....also so a seach for Gail Morgado...same thing, but a boucle style knit..great to travel with, I agree.

part of the reason that I started buying this fabric is that we're planning a trip to Ireland in '07 and I understand that I will be limited to 1-50# bag....clearly they have no idea what they're expecting of me! I figure if I can cut down on the weight and packability of my clothing I'll have more room for my crocs!

Default Travel Knits

Part of my travel wadrobe is a label called Vivki Vi. I discovered it at Nordstrom a new years back when I had to attend a funeral in Iowa. The outfit stayed packed for three days, and when I finally took it out, it required NO ironing. When I reported this back to the sales clerk, she said, "I told ya!"

Also, I like stretchy knits as travel attire. They're comfortable when you have to spend most of the day in an airplane.

I have both Citinits and Slinky pieces - they are great! My favorite is a Slinky black shortsleeve tunic and gaucho set. I can wear it one night as is, one night with a tie-front teal jacket of the same fabric and yet another night with a sheer floral shirt - nothing wrinkles and it all packs down to nothing.

I love those jersey knits! Being a plus size, I like slightly fitte, but not clingy. The knits never wrinkle, pack small and come out looking great. I have about 15 different skirts and pants in the black knit and the same number in different colored or patterned tops. I can pack it all in a carry on and have enough clothes for daily wear in Europe as well as more fomal for dinner.

I've got a variety of those and love them all. Try Travel Smith as well.
There things are a big more but many of their travel items have "secret pockets" that are pick-pocket proof. Just bought two pairs of slacks for Rome in september!
