Wonderfully contrasting yet complimentary coloured yarns are cleverly woven together in this expertly woven country check. Liquorice Allsorts Check is expertly woven in a fine herringbone weave, using the softest cotton yarns in alternating tones of white, black and peachy orange to create the classic country check with a zingy and uplifting difference.
Liquorice Allsorts Check has a super soft feel which is like a flannel; with a lightly brushed surface, stable and therefore easy to sew, a soft drapey handle that allows gathers, pleats and tucks, perfect for pretty dresses and blouses with a country/prairie chic style. Traditional children's dresses and rompers will look super cute with smocked yokes and complimentary ric-rac trims. Men's and women's traditional country shirts will look super smart when made in this first rate fabric. Extend the shirt into a shirt dress and you have a cross seasonal garment you can layer up for winter with thick tights and woolly cardigans and jumpers.
Ideal for cosy and hard-wearing traditional pyjamas and nightshirts too, add some black piping to the collar, cuffs and pocket tops for a professional finish. Soft flannel type cottons are fantastic for a host of craft purposes too; make patchwork throws, cushions and soft furnishings with a traditional homespun look and feel. Sure to become heirlooms of the future.
