Indigo Pond Life by Merchant and Mills.
This lightweight Indian Cotton is hand block printed and Indigo dyed. Indigo Pond Life is a deep blue colour with lighter blue and white spots. As it is hand block printed, the pattern is not completely perfect which adds to its’s unique charm.
For the first couple of washes, place the fabric in the washing machine drum at 30 or 40 degrees with a handful of table salt. This will help fix the dye to prevent it running, however Indigo will continue to get lighter over time as it will never truly fix. The colour can transfer to other items on contact, as is common with deep blue jeans.
Traditional hand block and dye techniques are used to make this wonderful rural cloth.
Suitable for lightweight summer tops and dresses such as Montrose, Evelyn and Stevie. This cloth is suitable for the following patterns in the Merchant and Mills Workbook: Bantam, Heron and Saltmarsh.
