Precut Fabric is color coordinated fabric cut into a specific size instead of rolled on a bolt. They can be cut and packaged by a fabric manufacturer, usually by fabric groups or collections, or cut by fabric shops and made available to customers. Sizes include but are not limited to fat quarters, fat eights, rolls of 2 1/2" x width of fabric strips and squares of various sizes. Fabric manufacturers have different names for their precut units, such as Jelly Rolls, Layer Cakes, Bali Pops and Charm Packs. Most precuts by manufactures follow loose standards of contents for each particular precut type, so check your labels for number of pieces per pack.
