This organic cotton has a fine twill with a soft sanded finish on one side. Due to the nature of the organic cotton yarn which is less refined and processed, there may be the odd white speck in this cloth.
Ideal for trousers, dungarees, skirts and dresses that require some structure ie not a gathered waist, as well as lighter weight jackets and bag linings. It has a utility look and feel to it. Pattern suggestions: The Shepherd Skirt, The Three Pleat Skirt, The Apron Dress, The Celestial Dress, Strata Pants, Morgan Jeans, just to name a few.

We recommend pre washing your fabric before sewing. Putting a large piece of medium-heavy weight canvas into the washing machine can sometimes lead to white creases in the fabric, 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:
- Sink your fabric in water before hand, letting it fully absorb, so you are putting in the canvas already wet.
- Wash your fabric on its own for the first wash.
- If you can break up your fabric into half this will help.
- For the first wash use a delicate 30 degree cycle with a low spin with a non bio detergent.
- If any white creases develop, ironing on a medium heat whilst still damp will help.
- Iron on a medium heat.
- Do not tumble dry.
