We are always looking for fabric that has a bit of texture - so that when placed alongside fabrics with a smooth texture, such as Kona quilting cotton, there is a bit of tension, adding interest and depth to one's quilts or garments. The texture of Manchester is created by weaving threads of various weights. When naturally dyed, due to the natural undulations of the weave, the fabric will reflect the light at different angles, creating beautiful nuances and depth.
Manchester is a lightweight fabric and lends itself nicely to a wide variety of projects: shirts, dresses, home-wares such as quilts, pillow covers, duvet covers, and napkins.
Please note the fiber content of the fabric you are working with, and follow the applicable instructions:
Cotton, linen, or ramie - Machine washable on cool cycle. Hang to dry or machine-dry using low temperature.
Silk - Handwash with cool water recommended. Hang to dry.
Superwash Wool - Machine washable on cool cycle with pH neutral soap, though hand wash recommended. Lay flat or hang to dry.
Wool and Wool blends - Handwash only in lukewarm water with pH neutral soap. Lay flat or hang to dry.
