Organic Cotton Calico - Natural
Sorry, currently out of stock
Medium-weight organic cotton calico with a smooth but dense hand feel. Very good for home furnishings, making garment toiles and practising embroidery techniques!
100% organic cotton. 120-130cm wide. 165gsm.
Price is per HALF METRE. Multiple quantities will be cut as a continuous length.
This fabric is unfinished and so up to 5% shrinkage will occur, which also means that the weave may have irregularities and may feature some cotton seeds but can all be taken as charm. We recommend that you wash this fabric on 30-40˚ with mild detergent and line dry where possible, though tumble drying is ok. Iron on a hot setting. Though this fabric has been starched to enable a crisp finish, it won't necessarily all wash out and so will keep its stiffer hand feel.
Production notes: Raw material is certified organically-grown from India though location unknown, and spun into yarn in India at a GOTS-certified mill. The cloth is woven on small power looms in a small fair trade community in Kerala, India.
Please note: we do also stock a non-organic calico in light, medium and heavy weights - please contact us for sales.
