Calico Lightweight A2085 is a fabric with a plain weave that is made entirely of natural cotton. It is a popular dressmaking fabric and other clothing designs since it is 60% lighter than the heavyweight calico fabric. On first wash the fabric is liable to shrinkage. We advise a wash temperature of between 30 and 40 degrees, as long as the first wash temperature is not exceeded, further shrinking should be at a minimum.
Fabric is untreated ie. natural cream colour and requires washing before further processing.
