Deep Indigo – Cotton/Lycra Stretch Denim – 1/2 yard

$8.50

Stretch denim for all your summer park-sitting needs.

This cotton/lycra stretch denim:

-has a small amount of lycra/spandex (my estimates put it at about 2%) giving it about 10% widthwise stretch, which means it’ll work for stretch patterns but should also be great for non-stretch patterns

-is a nice deep indigo with lighter weft threads and a pronounced twill weave

 

Details

  • Colour: Deep indigo
  • Tone: Neutral
  • Fabric Content: Estimated at 98% cotton, 2% Spandex/lycra
  • Stretch percentage: 10%

  • Weight: Mediumweight – my best guess puts it at about 9 oz

  • Source: Deadstock from the NYC Garment District
  • Care: Wash alone the first few times as dye may run or rub off on other garments. (You can also add 1/2 cup of white vinegar your wash to set the dye) Wash on warm, tumble dry medium. Iron on warm with plenty of steam.

Prewashing large amounts of denim can sometimes cause white creases to appear, due to the fabric not having room to move around. This can be remedied by adding the fabric to the wash while wet, or cutting it into smaller pieces before your wash.

 

*We recommend taking a screenshot of this page to capture the care instructions, as listings often disappear when fabric goes out of stock!

 

Sustainability: Deadstock is high-quality fabric that went unused by the initial designer, fabric store or mill  who ordered it – be it a big-name fashion brand, fabric mill or film & TV set. (Kind of like browsing the fashion industry's fabric stash.) Buying deadstock supports a circular textile economy, avoids net new production of harmful fibres and dyes & diverts high-quality textiles away from landfills. Pretty cool!
