Bletchley Check - Grey Black is woven from superfine yarns with a combination of black, white and grey yarns to produce an allover mid grey tone. This amazing fabric is soft yet lightly textured (similar to a seersucker) and will wash & wear endlessly. A soft drape quality will enable you to create full gathers, pleats and pin tucks. An ideal alternative to chambray with its washed and worn hard-wearing hand. Also see the sibling fabric: Bletchley Check - Purple Black.
