Hand Dyed Fabric Notes

Due to the nature of hand dyed fabrics there will be some variation in shades between dye-lots.  We recommend if you are using the same fabric for a set or projects that you buy all the fabric you need at the same time.

When ordering hand dyed fabric please bear in mind that different base fabrics take dyes differently.  Linens generally dye darker, if you need any advise please drop us an email at

Fabric sizes are approximate, the fabrics are measured before dying and some shrinkage may occur.  This should be uniform, if a design will fit onto an undyed cut then it should still fit on it with the same margins after dying as the count of the fabric increases slightly.  

Our fabrics are not guaranteed colourfast.  We do not recommend washing the fabrics once they have stitching on them, or ironing them with a steam iron in case of dye running and damaging stitching.  We also do not recommend washing the unstitched fabric with other items again in case of colour run.
