Viscose Crepe - Herringbone Red/Black
A drapey lightweight viscose fabric with a crepe weave. It has a super smooth hand feel and fairly silky with a slight sheen, but close up has the distinctive crepe texture. It does let the light through so bear this in mind when making clothing. This is the perfect weight and drape for blouses, summer dresses, simple tops, garments with ruffles and gathers, floaty skirts... You could also use it for lightweight curtains! The print runs across the grain with each \ / herringbone measuring 7mm and a repeat from line to line every 13mm. Be aware of the direction you cut your pattern pieces in as the herringbones are directional.

Price is per HALF metre. Multiple order quantities will be cut in a continuous length.
We advise prewashing in case of any minor shrinkage or dye transfer that could occur. We suggest that you machine wash on a cool-warm 30˚ with mild detergent and try not to wash with items of clothing that could snag. Line dry where possible as tumble drying is known to shrink viscose fabrics. Iron on a cool-med setting inside out to avoid creating shine on the right side. You can also dry clean this fabric.
