Description

Dyed yarn fabrics get their distinctive appearance and feel from how they are woven. The yarns (threads) are dyed first, and then the cloth is woven. Often a few different weights or textures of yarn (thread) are woven into the cloth to create a more textured fabric. The dyed thread means the colour is embedded in the fabric and will not fade off the surface with washing.  In most cases it also means both sides of the fabric can be used as the 'right' side, although each side may look slightly different from the other.

When possible I've included photographs with other fabrics and with a 1" safety pin (or a ruler), as well as showing both sides in order to help you judge colours, scale and texture.

Care

 Machine wash in lukewarm water, remove from dryer before fully dry, press if desired. These fabrics have very little shrinkage and keep their colour and body when washed.
