Description:

Dash Dash is a handwoven ikat in a charcoal black with white flecked criss crosses running though.

This light-weight cotton would make a beautiful Ellsworth shirt. Perfect for tops, dresses, pyjamas and lightweight breezy curtains.

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.

  • 118cm wide.
  • 100% cotton.
  • For the first couple of washes, place the fabric in the washing machine drum at 30 or 40 degrees with a handful of table salt. This will help fix the dye to prevent it running.
  • As our Indian cloths are handmade, sometimes susceptible to irregularities in the weave or print, this is all part of their charm and are not classed as flaws.
  • As all computer monitors show colours differently, we recommend ordering a sample of the cloth to check it is the right colour and weight for your project.
  • Thread match Gutermann Sew All 000.

Dash Dash is suitable for the following patterns in our Workbook: Bantam, Saltmarsh and Heron.
