Calico Lightweight is a plain weave fabric made with 100% natural cotton. It is 60% lighter than the heavyweight calico fabric making it very popular in dressmaking and other garment designs. The fabric is unprocessed in any way and prone to shrinkage on first wash. As long as the first wash temperature is not exceeded, further shrinkage should be minimal, we recommend a wash temperature between 30-40 degrees.
Fabric is untreated ie. natural cream colour and requires washing before further processing.
