These naturally dyed linen/ cotton fat quarters will add a look to your quilts or small sewing projects that is ethereal and unique. This collection is themed around Cutch (Acacia catechu).This brown toned dye is lightfast, washfast and high in tannins, which helps retain other colors layered over it. The fabric itself is a 55% linen/ 45% cotton blend that has excellent drape and weight, making it suitable for inclusion in clothing as well as quilts and household items like tablecloths, napkins and towels. The cloth is preshrunk and rinsed. There should be no worry for staining or color running. As natural dyes can fade with constant exposure to direct sunlight, it is recommended they be stored out of direct sunlight. Machine washable, gentle cycle, COLD water (my standard recommendation for all naturally dyed items). PLEASE NOTE: I do NOT recommend using detergents with any form of bleaching agent-- colorsafe or not. Naturally dyed fabrics do best with additive free soaps.
