Description:

A classic utility cotton basket weave in navy. This is a soft but strong cotton canvas that would be suitable for bag making, coats, jackets and trousers that require some structure like our Eve pattern. Please note this colour is not a classic navy, it has a slight aubergine/brown hint to it - please order a sample to check it's what you want.

Utility Navy is suitable for the following patterns in our Workbook: Haremere coat.

Washing Instructions

Always pre wash your fabric before sewing. Putting a large piece of medium-heavy weight cotton into the washing machine can sometimes lead to white creases within 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 fabric on its own for the first wash.
  • Sink your cotton in water before hand, letting it fully absorb, so you are putting in the cotton already wet.
  • 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.
