Cotton bull denim in color! This is the same quality as the 12 oz. natural and white I feature above. It’s washable, too! Be sure to order swatches to review actual color. Like the natural and white denim this fabric needs to be preshrunk before making your slipcover. Low wrinkle when you follow my preshrink instructions.
I’m super happy with this tightly woven, beefy 11.5 oz. cotton bull denim. Dyed the most gorgeous shade of camel — a good alternative to Khaki. Topsider is ideal for everyday slipcovers. Machine washes and dries with very good results. To avoid deep set wrinkles be sure to wash & dry this fabric per my washing instructions. Expect high shrinkage: 6″ per yard length and 3″ on width.
This yarn-dyed indigo denim is a classic. Beefy 14 oz. weight with a soft drape. Works well in slipcovers that get a lot of use. You’ll love the durability especially if you have kids and/or pets.
The indigo blue color (above) is a medium shade of indigo. It’s yarn-dyed (not dyed solid) which gives the fabric an authentic blue jean look. Machine washable. Be sure to pre-shrink your yardage. Slipcovers in Indigo denim: Ellen’s love seat and Kathy’s chair.
