What is Denim?

Denim needs no introduction! It is a hard-wearing cotton twill fabric, typically blue and used for jeans and other clothing. We stock both stretch and non-stretch versions of this timeless classic and a selection of colours.  Obviously, it makes great jeans, but also nice jackets, dresses and skirts.   Many people also use it for bags and other craft projects.

We also suggest you look at our cotton chambray range.  This fabric is often confused with denim fabric being similar in appearance.  However, it is generally a lighter and softer fabric, so makes lovely casual shirts, tops, dresses and skirts.

How do I wash this fabric?

Wash at 40˚ using non-bio liquid.  Wash the fabric before cutting and sewing, as it is likely to shrink a little. Iron using the appropriate setting for cotton on your iron. Hang to dry naturally or tumble dry on a low setting.
