This finely woven, Italian shirting cotton is woven in a subtle checked design with linen and cotton to produce a subtly slubby weave. A palette of muted, nature inspired colour conjures images of gazing out across a deep Norwegian fjord with hillsides covered in tall fir trees that are clothed in lichen. You will find all the inspired elements in the form of dark navy, hazy blue green, soft lichen, and the secondary tones where the fibres intersect, in this masterfully woven fabric.
Fjord Check boasts a stable handle, lightweight and soft drape quality, perfect for a plethora of sewing and crafting purposes. This fabric will sit perfectly with chambrays as it has a similar vibe.
Whether you want to create Scandi inspired clothing or pretty country style shirtdresses with a retro vibe; team with woolly tights and a cardigan for the cooler months. Classic country shirts and blouses are always a winner, perfect to wear with jeans or navy or spruce green corduroy trousers and skirts. Fashion traditional pyjamas and nightshirts, with piped collar and pocket details, in navy for classic night attire. Fjord Check will make beautiful traditional smocked yoke dresses perfect for little girls dresses and baby rompers, add velvet or satin ribbon for a the perfect finishing touch. This stable fabric is also ideal for country style soft furnishings for the home, cafe style curtains, place mats, napkins and table covers.
