Dusty Rose – Gracey Organic Cotton 7 oz. Twill – 1/2 yard
A sustainable wardrobe workhorse that’ll carry you through all four seasons in crisp, casual style. If it’s wrong to get this excited about twill, I don’t ever want to be right.
The Gracey organic cotton twill:
-is soft to the touch, with a gorgeous smooth hand and crisp, structured drape
-is medium weight: perfect for a jacket, structured skirt or pair of trousers
-has a fine, preshrunk twill weave
-Colour: Dusty, muted deep rose
-Fabric Content: 100% GOTS-certified, OEKO-TEX 100-certified organic cotton
-Weight: Mediumweight – 7 oz. / 237 gsm
-Care: This fabric is preshrunk, but we suggest giving it a prewash just to be safe. Wash on cool, tumble dry on low/permanent press (or hang to dry), iron on high with lots of steam. Like all dyed natural fibres, expect to see some fading over time. This can be mitigated by hanging to dry and washing on cool. Note that colours may transfer before the first few washes.
🌱Sustainability: Certified organic from seed to finished product, our Gracey twill is Control Union 100% GOTS certified organic cotton and printed with OEKO-TEX 100 certified eco-friendly dyes.
Non-organic cotton production is responsible for 25% of the world’s insecticide use and more than 10% of pesticide use – pretty staggering for just one crop. Traditional cotton is also incredibly water-hungry – it takes 20,000 litres of water to produce just 2 pounds of cotton. Organic cotton uses (on average) 30% less water – reserving more natural resources for the inhabitants of the often water-challenged countries where cotton is harvested.
💞Named in celebration of Gracey Claymore, youth leader and water protector at the Dakota Access Pipeline at Standing Rock. She now creates sustainable initiatives at Standing Rock CDC, which you can donate to here.
