Black Cotton Corduroy - 1/2 yard


 I'm a big fan of corduroy – I think it adds such a luxe touch to simple shapes, a little tip of the hat to the 70s without going full hog. This gorgeous deadstock corduroy is rich in both colour and feel – a gorgeous black with a velvety sheen, it's 100% cotton (yahoo!) and the perfect weight for a miniskirt, pair of wide-legged trousers or smart lil' jacket. It's 12 wale (this just references the # of lines per inch), meaning the cord lines are fairly thin, steering it away from costume & into couture. 

  • Colour: Black
  • Fabric Content: 100% cotton
  • Opacity: Opaque
  • Weight: Medium > Heavyweight
  • Width: 57"
  • Source: Deadstock
  • Care: Corduroy is essentially velvet w/ lines, so all the same rules apply. Wash on the gentle cycle & tumble dry low or hang to dry. Corduroy, along with velvet, attracts lint in the washer, so be sure to wash the finished garment inside out to protect the nap. Also, cutting it can be a bit of a beast (black fluffs everywhere!) but nothing a quick vacuum won't fix. :)
