72% Cotton 25% Linen 3% Elastane - Darker Blue - Soft Denim
Different Dye Lot to the previous bolt
Made in Japan
This is the most lovely denim. The Linen | Cotton blend is sensational for denim jackets, jeans, dresses and skirts. The cloth is much softer that most denims, but still has substance and stability. The 3% elastane assures comfort and that essential 'give'. Compared to Cloth Edit Designer denim, the 'Essential' Denim is a bit heavier and closer to a 10 - 11 oz denim. It's approx 350-400 gsm. This is a little darker than the Linen Cotton 'Mid Blue' denim, but not as dark at the Designer Denim.
For your cloth edit consider: semi-fitted or boxy jackets and blazers. Consider A-Line coats, straight and A-Line skirts, jeans, pants, and fitted dresses.

Cotton is an easy care fibre as it is strong when wet, and so it can be machine washed. The 3% Spandex in this stretch woven means that tumble drying will adversely affect the fabric. Do Not Tumble Dry. The finished garment will look better and last longer if it is shaken out when wet, and placed on a hanger to dry. To prevent fading, wash inside out and dry in the shade. While cotton needs a hot iron, the elastane content means you will need to test the fabric, so start on a cooler setting, and iron on the wrong side. We suggest cushioning darts when ironing so the dart doesn’t show through on the right side.
