Off white and indigo blue ikat weave. 113cm wide.
Ikat is a resist dyeing technique where the threads used for weaving are dyed beforehand. The Ikat threads are bound in a pattern so that the threads covered by the binding ‘resist’ the dye, creating a design. The more binding done before weaving, the more complicated the pattern. Ikat cloths are prone to slubs and often have ties in the cloth where one weaver ends and another begins, the ties will be on the wrong side of the cloth . These are not flaws.
Suitable for dresses, tops, shirts, and looser fitting trousers or shorts.
Glacier Blue is suitable for the following patterns in Merchant & Mills Workbook: Bantam and Heron
