Pre-cut pack of 8 Oakshott fabrics cut as generous fat eighths or fat quarters.

A tropical island hideaway in a carefree corner of the Caribbean: gaze out from beneath a palm tree to where the ocean meets the sky. Cayman combines 8 tranquil Colourshott shades: 66, 67, 68, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65.

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%.
