Merchant and Mills - Hewitt Stripe is an off-white and black Indian Cotton. This cotton is very soft and lightweight so would work for tops, shirts, pyjamas and dresses with fullness.
Indian cloths are sometimes susceptible to irregularities in the weave, this is all part of their charm and are not classed as flaws.
Uses: Tops, Skirts, Dresses, Pyjamas Composition: 100% cotton Width: 118cm / 46inch Pattern: Pattern repeat horizontally across the width: 1.2cm. Pattern repeat going down the length: 3.7cm. Origin: India Care: Wash at 30 degrees, with a non bio detergent and on a gentle spin cycle. Iron on low, do not bleach. Tumble dry on a low heat. For the first couple of washes, place the fabric in the washing machine drum at 30 or 40 degrees with a handful of table salt. This will help fix the dye to prevent it running.
Yay Stitch recommends that you always pre-wash your fabric (exception oilskin fabric) in the way that you intend to look after it long term. So this might mean also throwing it in the dryer if that's how you roll!
Please note, at Yay Stitch we sell our fabric in 0.25cm increments. A quantity of 4 is 1 meter and 6 is 1.5m and so on.
