Fox and Rabbit Hand Dye – Duxbury
Released at Needlework Expo August 2021
The linen is stained and not dyed. Do not wash. Not colourfast
Duxbury is a heavily stained linen. It contains a number of dark marks and stains on the linen and can contain water stains. This is as dyed. It is meant to replicate an old piece of linen which was not treated very well.
If you later decide that you do not like the heavy staining, then a quick gentle wash in cold water without detergent, will remove most of the stains resulting in a softer antiqued linen more like Mayflower.
Linen is sold in 1 yard pieces. All fabrics are dyed on a Zweigart base unless otherwise noted.
Due to the nature of the hand dying process and the structure of fabric counts, the color displayed on the item is a representation of the color dyed on 36 count linen. The color could be lighter or darker depending upon the base linen and the weather during the dying process.
Whilst we do our best, we cannot guarantee colorfastness of any hand dyed fabric. If you wash your fabric, some inert dye might be released.
The size and fabric count of each cut is measured prior to dying. Some shrinkage could occur during the dyeing process.
