Product Description

Reminiscent of classic woolens from famous mills, Cottonworks Wovens are pure-cotton fabrics woven to look and feel like their pure-wool counterparts.  These “cotton laines” have the thickness of wool but as cottons, they don’t require extra care or expense to maintain.  As woven plaids, stripes and textures – not printed – Cottonworks can be used for quilts, home-décor, stitchery and rug-hooking.  It makes a beautiful foundation for wool appliqué!

The two sides of the fabric have a subtle difference – the right-side is a bit softer with a brushed-quality.  But unlike the Brushed Homespuns of the past, this new fabrication is woven with threads-yarns that are slightly thicker than those used for regular quilting-weight cottons.  It’s completely crazy but it really does look like wool… and it feels like it too. Sewing with Cottonworks will require a few small adjustments, the sort we make for sewing with cotton lawn, double-gauze, rayon and knit.  It’s not difficult, it’s just different.

  • Do not pre-wash this fabric unless you’re making a garment.  This is especially important when using Layer Cakes or Fat Quarters. (shrinkage is minimal – less than 3%)
  • Before cutting, we recommend prepping the fabric with sizing or starch.  Spray the fabric generously on the wrong side and allow it to air-dry.
  • A larger-than-usual seam allowance is also recommended – 3/8” to ½”. This will affect the size of your finished patchwork unless you adjust accordingly.
    • For 3/8” seam allowance, add 1/8” to the cut size of the pieces.  And for 1/2” seam allowance, add 1/4” to the cutting sizes.
  • Press the seams open to reduce bulk.
  • A single-fold binding is recommended. If a double-fold binding is desired, substitute a regular quilting cotton.

review for Cottonworks Wovens Plaid Brown

  1. Hettylikesquilts (verified owner)

    From the pic it is reminiscent of a woolly blanket, but it is a medium weight feeling, quite closely woven cotton that does not feel to stretch. It feels very soft and warm
