Chief Grey£14.00/metre

A mottled trip grey ikat weave. A slightly heavier summer cotton, the texture of a canvas but soft. Suitable for tops, dresses, shirts, and loose fitting trousers. 140cm wide.

Ikat is a resist dyeing technique where the threads used for weaving are dyed beforehand.  The Ikat threads are bound in a pattern so that the threads covered by the binding ‘resist’ the dye, creating a design.  The more binding done before weaving, the more complicated the pattern.

Chief Grey is suitable for the following patterns in our Workbook: Heron and Strides.
