Celestial is a superb, finely woven, high thread count, 100% cotton jacquard shirting fabric. Woven with stunning mid blue/grey warp threads and superfine natural coloured weft, which produce a subtle sheen and two-tone, almost akin to a chambray. This gentle and pleasing shade of grey has beautiful blue undertones and plays the perfect host to the celestial planets, moons and stars which are woven expertly throughout (appearing in a lighter shade and with a silky twill weave). The opposite effect is apparent on the reverse of the fabric - blue grey planets onto the cloud grey background - view the product images for a close-up!
This first rate fabric has a beautiful, soft, almost silky, cool cotton feel with a lightweight soft drapey handle. The weight is light but not at all thin or flimsy, definitely more like a soft quality chambray - soft strong and hardwearing! Perfect for a multitude of clothing and craft purposes: why not create the perfect shirt this fabric is very unisex. Try shirtdresses, blouses, simple tunics, smock tops, summer dresses and skirts. Celestial will pleat, tuck, gather and topstitch beautifully. Also perfect for patchwork and quilting projects too.
