- We love Lyocell (Tencel) as a more ecological/sustainable replacement for rayon. This enzyme washed twill fabric has an amazing hand, drape and weight. It is a bit challenging to dye, but worth the effort. The color shimmers on the surface and the movement in the fabric enhances the subtle unevenness of shade.
Botanically dyed fabrics are a labor of love and a slow process. This palette was developed exclusively for the Embody Capsule Wardrobe collection (but of course feel free to use the fabric for any sewing project).
Deren dyes all of the fabric in her backyard 'dye studio'. The fabrics are gently scoured and dyed using rainwater. Deren loves to dye using plants grown in her garden or foraged locally.
The colors are colorfast but we recommend, washing on gentle cycle and hanging to dry. You can tumble in the dryer for a few minutes to soften if you prefer.
Hand-dyed fabrics have texture and the color plays across the fabric in unique ways. The color saturation is almost never uniform, and can be used intentionally to create beautiful patterns on the fabric.
The colors Marigold Burst and Olive Burst are dyed with intentional unevenness of color. The color in Olive Burst is layered with olive green, grey and a hint of brown.
Fabrics are dyed to order so each is inherently unique. Deren employs a systematic approach to her dyeing and formula creation but when working with botanical color not everything can be absolutely controlled and results can vary slightly.
We cut in 1/4 yard increments. The amount available refers to how many quarter yard increments we have in stock.
To choose the amount you want enter the number of quarter yard increments you need (rest assured we will cut your cloth in one piece). Example: If you would like 2.5 yards, enter "10" in the box.
For help converting your yardage requirements to quarter yard increments, use our handy chart.
*We do our best to photograph all our products accurately. We take the photos in our shop using natural light. Further variation can be caused by color differences on your screen and the actual color may be very different. If you have any questions please contact the shop.
