Description:

A warm tan bedford cord that is very hardwearing. Bedford cord has faint lengthwise ridges without the raised pile of regular corduroy which gives the effect of a narrow stripe on the cloth.

Ideal for coats, jackets, trousers, over shirts and dresses that require structure. We would make a pair of Eve trousers or a pair of Harlenes.

Washing Instructions

We recommend pre washing your cloth before sewing. Putting a large piece of medium-heavy weight cloth into the washing machine can sometimes lead to white creases in the cloth, this is because it is a stiff fabric so it doesn’t have room to move around. We recommend doing the following to help this not to happen:

  • Wash your cloth on its own for the first wash.
  • Sink your cloth in water before hand, letting it fully absorb, so you are putting in the cloth already wet.
  • If you can break up your fabric into half this will help.
  • For the first wash use a delicate 30 degree cycle with a low spin.
  • If any white creases develop ironing whilst still damp will help.
  • Do not tumble dry.

When you have made the garment we would recommend washing it inside out.
