58"/147cm wide, and approximately 209gsm means that it is suitable for light to mediumweight projects including blouses, shirts, cosy loungewear, light blankets and quilts, linings and blinds, dresses and accessories. It has a brushed finish so is super comfortable, soft and warming.

The checks measure:

Brushed cotton is very straightforward to sew with, as it is stable and non-slippery. It has been machine woven and is therefore consistent and smooth. This fabric has the inclusion of recycled polyester, allowing it the strength consisten with synthetic fibres. It will also dry quicker.

Ethical and sustainability considerations:

Helping to support small production clusters in India, this cotton fabric is produced in a powerloom unit utilising both pre-consumer cotton waste and post-consumer polyester textile discard. It is Global Recycle Standard certified as assured by Control Union.

As the fibres are recovered from textile waste, there are no additional dyes required making it a low impact textile that utilises existing resources.

Please note: due to the nature of recycled fabrics, there may be some slight irregularities in the weave caused by yarn differences e.g. slubs.

To care for your product:

Suitable for the washing machine and tumble dryer. Iron medium temperature, but it is suggested to do so when damp, or spray a little water on it first to protect the brushed finish. Also, try not to twist and if possible dry flat.

Turn the machine down to 30 degrees for a more environmentally friendly wash. In Europe alone, if every household turned its washing temperature down to 30°C, we could save 12 million tons of CO2 a year.

We also recommend line drying as this reduces energy usage and looks after your textiles for longer. Use a mild detergent, light botanical refresher or even just steam the item you've made in your bathroom after a shower.

Ideal For:

Bedding, Blinds, Curtains & Pelmets, Cushions, Hand Sewing, Handkerchiefs and Napkins, Lining & Pocketing, Loungewear, Machine Sewing, Quilts, Scarves & Neckwear, Shirts & Blouses, Sleepwear, Summer Skirts & Dresses, Table Runner, Tops & Tunics, Trousers & Shorts
