This is a package of lovely natural indigo dyed cotton pieces.The fabrics are recycled,strong and soft.
I begin with excellent quality,creamy white cottons.
The assortment includes Pima, Egyptian, and combed cotton, as well as some vintage pieces. Each piece in this group is embossed with floral or geometric designs. These patterns are beautifully enhanced by the lovely blue indigo color.
These fabrics range in shade from soft blue to rich, dark indigo blue.
Indigo dyeing is a slow process, with the darkest shades requiring as many as 15 dips in the dye pot. This can take several days to a couple weeks to achieve because indigo is a sort of living substance and needs to rest between dye sessions,
After each dip the cloth is aired outside for at least an hour,allowing the color to develop.With each return to the dye pot the shade is slightly increased.
The fabric is gently washed and rinsed many times to remove excess dye. After this I rinse it in a slightly acidic bath, (very dilute white vinegar), to further clarify the beautiful blue color. Finally it is rinsed in clear water again,aired and ironed,
I love growing and working with indigo. I'm glad to be able to share this beautiful fabric with others,

The 9 pieces in this package are each approximately 8"x18".

They would make gorgeous focal points or accents in patchwork, applique projects or any creation that could use a bit of true indigo blue.
Although the dye is fast,I recommend hand washing in cold water with mild soap.This will preserve the depth and loveliness of the color.
Thanks for visiting.
Back to work!
