Like the natural and white denim this fabric needs to be preshrunk before making your slipcover. Low wrinkle when you follow my preshrink instructions.
This medium weight denim is a favorite of customers who love a very soft hand-feel. It has a sanded finish, which gives the fabric a subtle brushed surface. The darker colors Navy and Graphite take on a slight distressed look after washed, giving it a vintage worn appearance.
This indigo denim is a classic. It’s a heavy weight with a soft drape. Works well for washable slipcovers that get daily use under normal wear. The indigo blue color is yarn-dyed (not dyed solid), which gives the fabric an authentic blue jean look. Machine washable. Be sure to pre-shrink your yardage.
