Indigo Dyed Cotton Fabric Mending or piecing Pack
Please select all options.
This is collection of 100% cotton fabric dyed by hand with natural plant indigo dye. Among them are some resist printed katazome and some block printed designs. The fabric textures range from soft smooth cottons to mid-weight coarser textured cottons.
These are artisan fabrics made by hand by skilled crafts-people.
Each pack includes 150 grams of a range of indigo dyed blues cotton fabric and printed patterns. The sizes of the pieces vary, they are approx 12" X 6" some are bigger, some smaller, some square, some rectangle.
This time the fabrics are mostly shirt weight cotton.
Prewash? No blue has rubbed off on my fingers as I handled these fabrics so I believe they the dye is well fixed in the cloth, but check for yourself by rinsing in warm water. They won't shrink.
Care: Plant dyes do fade over time, the way indigo dyed colour fades is part of why it is so valued, it increases in beauty. You can machine wash and dry, but it is good to take them out of the dryer before they are totally dry. Cotton fabric looses its niceness when overdried.
- These fabrics are suitable for home decor sewing, visible mending, boro, piecework and applique work.
- Natural Plant Indigo dyed fabrics make beautiful mending or embellishments on jeans and other natural fibre clothing.
