This gorgeous handwoven fabric is now available for purchase for your own sewing projects! It is made from 100% cotton yarn handwoven on a mechanical loom. The color is a subtle cool gray, tending towards pale blue in the right light. It is a medium weight fabric, with a light drape, perfect for shirts, light sweaters, skirts and dresses.
This fabric is machine washable, and so are any projects you make from it! We recommend that you protect seams by using a serger, zig zag stitch, or bias binding, but with proper care your handwoven garments will last as long or longer than those sewn from commercial fabric.
I've used this exact fabric to sew the Wiksten shift shirt, and the Fancy Tiger Crafts Fen Dress, and have gotten incredible compliments on both pieces. This fabric was also used by Pamut Apparel for her Charlie Sweater (Snowday colorway), see more photos here!
The fabric is 48" wide, and available in 1/2 yard increments. Your yardage will arrive as a continuous cut, so if you order a quantity of 5 you will receive a single piece of fabric that is 2.5 yards long.
