Butter knit vs. Liquid knit

Started 1305955165.77 in Susan Graver | Last reply 1306121839.673 by Jeanne R

I am new to the SG line and would like to know the difference between butter knit and liquid knit? Can anyone who has worn both, please let me know the difference? Thanks.

I wish I could help you, but I'm not super familar. I only own a piece or two of butter knit. It's very smooth and silky. Liquid knit I do not own, but from tight shots of it on camera, sometimes it reminds me of the old Citiknits. I may be wrong. I'm not saying it's the same thing, but along those lines is what it kinda looks like sometimes.

I've got tons of the stuff and I still can't tell you the difference. They all look alike to me.

Oops! Did I roll my eyes out loud?

2406, If this helps any, to me, the butter knit (BK) is thinner, and the liquid knit (LK) is more substantial. She has made pants in the LK, but think I have heard SG (Susan) say the BK is too thin for a pant. The BK items I have are sleeveless tops that have come with shirts/shirt jackets which I do wear as a set and cover-up. If you do wear a BK top without an outer piece, you will probably want to make sure to have the correct style bra. HTH!!

Lustra Knit is the most substantial. Liquid Knit is quite light and not at all like the old city knits but it tends to not look good on the bottom hems which makes it look really cheap. Butter knit is a light, silky fabric. I'd say it would be perfect for a tank top under a blouse. I hope that helps.
