Dark grey medium weight denim. 100% cotton. 7oz/200gsm. 150cm wide. Wash at 40 degrees.
A workhorse denim that matches so many of our patterns. Perfect for shirts, dresses and tops that require some structure, lightweight jackets or over shirts. Also an ideal bottom weight for structured trousers or lighter weight jeans.
This is quite crisp off the roll but it completely softens after two washes.
7oz Hatchet is suitable for the following patterns in our Workbook: Curlew, Strides and Saltmarsh.
We recommend pre-washing your denim before sewing. Putting a large piece of medium-heavy weight denim into the washing machine can sometimes lead to white creases in the denim, this is because it is a stiff fabric so it doesn’t have room to move around. We recommend doing the following to help this not to happen:
Wash your denim on its own for the first wash.
Sink your denim in water before hand, letting it fully absorb, so you are putting in the denim already wet.
If you can break up your denim fabric into half this will help.
For the first wash use a delicate 30 degree cycle with a low spin.
If any white creases develop ironing whilst still damp will help.
Do not tumble dry.
When you have made the garment we would recommend washing it inside out.
