Melon – Rayon Challis – 1/2 yard

$7.75

 Lightweight with loads of movement, this deadstock rayon challis would be a dream for a summer button-up or lined shirtdress. As the production of traditional rayon & viscose is one of the most pollutive in the textile industry, sourcing deadstock rayon like this one (already produced and just sitting in a warehouse, waiting for you!) is a greener way to sew with this gorgeous fabric. 

The colour is a bright cantaloupe, leaning slightly warm – just what your summer sewing queue needs. :) 

  • Colour: Cantaloupe orange
  • Fabric Content: 100% rayon
  • Opacity: Medium opacity (sheers ever so slightly when held up to light – but could potentially get away with an unlined dress/trousers!)
  • Weight: Lightweight with body
  • Width: 56"
  • Source: Deadstock
  • Care: There's no gentle way to put this: rayon shrinks like crazy. Prewash the dickens out of this bad boy – preferably on warm, and tumble dry on med just to be safe. For the finished garment, I'd recommend washing on delicate or handwashing.
