6 oz Californian Cotton Denim - Merchant and Mills
A beautiful shade of light-medium weight denim. A real workhorse denim that matches so many of Merchant and Mills’ patterns. Just heavy enough for trousers that are fairly loose fitting like our 101’s. Perfect for shirts, dresses, tops and bag linings. 6oz Californian is suitable for the Merchant & Mills patterns Bantam, Curlew, Heron, Strides and Saltmarsh.
This is quite crisp off the roll but it completely softens after two washes.
Material: 100% cotton
Width: 150 cm
This fabric is sold by the half yard and cut continuous.
Fabric Care (Per Manufacturer): We recommend pre-washing your denim before sewing. Putting a large piece of medium-heavy weight denim into the washing machine can sometimes lead to white creases in the denim, 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 denim on its own for the first wash. Wash at 40 degrees.
Sink your denim in water before hand, letting it fully absorb, so you are putting in the denim already wet.
If you can break up your denim fabric into half this will help.
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.
When you have made the garment we would recommend washing it inside out.
