This beautiful lightweight denim is the perfect mid blue colour; leaning towards the darker end of the hue. I'm sure that you know I love hemp, if you've read any of our other fabric descriptions. Hemp is durable, softer than linen, washed up beautifully, and is sustainable. It also, and this is key; keeps you cool. So lightweight and breathable, it's totally my summer solution. It survives both me and my children, and gets softer with age (just like me).
But what does this mean for this particular fabric? Well you've got a gorgeous hemp/cotton blend that breathes and drapes, in a very lightweight denim weave. You're going to make dresses, you're going to make shirts. You're going to make a pair of wide-leg pants. You're also going to wash it several times before you use it because the dye runs a little bit, okay? (This is totally normal and expected as it is an indigo dye. I do not find that after the initial few washes that it runs, but wash it with your dark denim just to be safe. I have not noticed any dye transfer onto my furniture or bags, etc).

Fabric is priced and sold by the 1/4 metre. We cut multiple 1/4 metres continuously. For example; 2 units is 1/2m, 3 units is 3/4m, 4 units is a full metre, 5 units is 1.25m. A single 1/4 metre will be cut as a fat quarter, unless you request a skinny quarter. Fat Quarters are half the width of the fabric x 0.5m, whereas Skinny Quarters are the full width of the fabric x 0.25m. We do this so you can order just as much fabric as you need, to decrease fabric wastage.
