Pre-cut pack of 12 Oakshott fabrics cut as generous fat eighths or fat quarters.
Picture the Caribbean: the sun warms your back as you salsa on a golden beach to the gentle sound of surf. This rainbow of 12 vibrant Colourshott shades might just transport you there.
100% mercerised shot cottons - each colourway combines a base colour warp with a complementary or contrasting weft thread. This produces the trademark ‘shot’ effect when colours appear to shimmer and ‘move’ depending on how the light falls. It lends extra depth and texture to your project.
Use them for quilting, patchwork and general sewing.
CARING FOR YOUR SHOT COTTONS - BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER SEWING
We use the best quality reactive dyes which provide the best fastness to light, rubbing and especially to washing. This however cannot be guaranteed and as many quilts are future heritage projects, we recommend dry cleaning.
Our fabrics are soft finished with steam after production and most quilters do not prewash them. If prewashing is preferred, then only by hand in clean water at 30C, please.
Our fabrics are pure finished (they don’t contain binders / wax / starch etc). The handle will therefore change very little when the fabric is washed. They may however fray slightly more than ‘finished’ fabrics and to minimise this, we recommend overlocking cut edges prior to washing.
Do not machine wash and do not tumble dry. Dark and light colours should be washed separately. Avoid optical whiteners and chlorine based cleaning products. Gently towel dry and iron whilst damp. Allow for a shrinkage of 3-5%.
