PRODUCT INFORMATION

This Fabric is sold in units of 50cm (.5m; ½ m).    Eg. for 2.5m, enter the quantity ‘5’. 

 If the precise colour, weight and feel of the fabric is important for your decision, and the photos aren’t giving you enough detail, the best option to eliminate disappointment is to use the Swatch Service.  Each Swatch is .50c.  See under the 'About' tab for more details. 

 

100% Viscose – Birds of Play

I am so excited about this print.  ‘Birds of Play’ reminds me of the stunning Hawaiian Aloha prints that I am always drawn to.  The navy background is the perfect base for the cream and aqua birds and foliage.  The foliage also includes a little black, which is great for coordinating.  This would be an amazing shirt, but as it’s a light weight viscose challis, and not the traditional cotton of Aloha designs, this would also be a light and floaty dress.  The large print would really dazzle in a midi or maxi.  It is a touch semi-transparent (under direct light), but you will be fine with a shirt or a dress with a fuller shirt.  The print detracts from any transparency really.

Cloth Care:

Viscose and Rayon are regenerated cellulose fibres made from natural cellulose sources such as wood pulp.  It is delicate and requires special care to reduce the risk of being pulled out of shape, pilling, and shrinkage.  Hand washing is recommended as it is especially delicate when wet.  Turn inside out and wash in cold or lukewarm water. Do not twist/wring. Machine wash at own risk.  Turn inside out to minimise fading and use a mesh washing bag so the garment is not pulled and distorted.  Wash in a cool, delicate cycle.    Dry flat or on a padded hanger.  Do not dry in a dryer as the fabric will shrink.  Iron on the reverse side and use a low setting.
