Merchant & Mills : Alaskan Snow Cotton
Black and white Ikat weave.
A summer weight dressmaking cotton. Suitable for breezy tops, dresses and loose fitting trousers.
Ikat is a resist dyeing technique where the threads used for weaving are dyed beforehand. The Ikat threads are bound in a pattern so that the threads covered by the binding ‘resist’ the dye, creating a design. The more binding done before weaving, the more complicated the pattern.
Some Merchant & Mills cloths are sometimes susceptible to irregularities in the weave, this is all part of their charm and are not classed as flaws.
