A very special washed denim, soft handle and truly versatile.
8oz/225gsm. 150cm wide.
Wash at 40 degrees.
8oz denim is suitable for the following patterns in our Workbook: Strides, Saltmarsh and Haremere. Please be aware that when this is washed at the mill the selvedges can become distressed.A note about pre washing your denim:
We recommend pre washing your denim before sewing. Putting a large piece of medium-heavy weight denim into the washing machine can sometimes lead to white creases in the denim, this is because it is a stiff fabric so it doesn’t have room to move around. We recommend doing the following to help this not to happen:
Wash your denim on its own for the first wash. You don’t need to use detergent if you don’t want to.
Wet the fabric first before putting it into the drum.
If you can break up your denim fabric into half this will help. Or if you have your pattern already you may be able to break it into smaller parts by looking at the lay plan – leave some wiggle room!
For the first wash use a delicate 30 degree cycle with a low spin.
If any white creases develop ironing whilst still damp will help.
Do not tumble dry.
Order per 1/4 metre. Orders will be cut as a continuous length. For example, to order 1m of fabric, enter 4 in the Quantity Box at checkout and then click UPDATE.
