100% Unbleached Cotton Calico
Our 100% loomstate, unbleached cotton calico is sold in various sizes. This natural cotton calico is a medium weight and is great for the many doll projects found in the books and patterns we sell.
This versatile fabric is plain woven, non-stretch and machine washable making it a perfect fabric for making rag dolls and many of the Tilda characters. In addition to toy making, it is also very easy to sew and is often used for quilting, toiles, embroidery, printing and many other crafts. It is a natural, undyed fibre which is therefore perfect for dying to a colour of your choice.
Our calico is available in either fat quarters, half metres, 1m pieces or 5m pieces (the width of the roll is approximately 160cm / 62″ including the selvedges).
This Gutermann cotton sewing thread is a very good match for sewing this fabric.
Because loomstate cotton calico has not gone through additional processes after being woven, you may see tiny flecks of cotton seed in the fabric. It is advisable to wash the calico before use, especially if you are using it to create doll and other cute characters!
