Dyed yarn cotton fabric is suitable for home sewing, piecing, appliqué, quilting, clothing, and home decor projects. Very popular for Japanese Patchwork style projects, and the perfect fabric for those of you sewing Yoko Saito projects.
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.
Dyed yarn fabrics are suitable for machine or hand sewing. I particularly like them for hand appliqué and stitching as the weave lets the needle travel through easily.
Recommended care instructions: Machine wash in lukewarm water, remove from dryer before fully dry, press if desired. These fabrics have little shrinkage and keep their color and drape when washed.
