Customer Questions and Answers
Do you have fabrick that can be used to make a wedding dress??
Our lightweight IL020 handkerchief linen and our IL019 and 1C64 middleweight linens have been used for wedding dresses. We have samples for purchase to make sure linen would work for you.
Is this fabric considered to be prepared for dyeing?
Hello! Excellent question. This cloth is not Prepared for Dyeing - it has a "Softened" finish. You can test a piece to see how it will take to the dyeing technique that you would like to use. We do have an article with a finished hand-dyed dress to help with ideas and inspiration here: blog.fabrics-store.com/2022/12/27/hand-dyed-cloud-dress/ Hope to see pictures :) Have a great day!
How does this fabric dye? I use fiber reactive dyes.
Our solid cottons are dyed with reactive dyes as well. There should not be an issue over dying the solid colors but we so recommend testing first to make sure there are no adverse reactions.
How would this fabric hold up for adult pants?
It will hold up very well for your intended project.
Are you going to release more colors in this cotton?
Since this is a new group we are waiting to see how the groups sell before we make an decisions on adding new items. Please check back with us in the New Year to see if we have made any decisions.
It is down proof?
Although this is a strong and sturdy cotton, down proof usually refers to a heavier fabric. The best way to proceed would be to order a swatch to see if it would suit your needs.
What is the width of the percale fabrics? Prewashed/shrinkage? Thank you, Gail Buda
59 inches and the shrinkage based on our recommended wash methods is 2% in the warp and 2% in the weft. You will find our wash instructions listed in our help center.
Is this percale appropriate for a long sleeve button down front women's blouse?
Yes you can use this cotton for apparel as well.
I made two comforters out of this fabric, filled with pure wool. Nice fabric but not quite as soft as I've seen for percale. I'm now looking for something softer for the outer covers.
I planned to make the Birgitta Helmersson "Zero-Waste" Gather Dress. I also wanted some leftovers for future patching and piecework projects. Using over three yards of fabric, I first soaked the damp cloth in an unscientific blend of Trader Joe's plain soymilk and water for about 24 hours. I hung the material to dry while concocting my avocado dye.
