10.5oz Upcycled Striped Denim - Pale Blue/Natural Fleck
($32.00 per meter)
This sturdy and hardwearing denim comes to us from The New Denim Project, a third-generation textile mill in Guatemala that focuses on natural fibres and circular manufacturing. This fabric is made entirely from recycled garment industry waste. These fibers are spun and rewoven into a durable, upcycled, and 100% biodegradable textile that is both chemical and dye-free, minimizing water and energy consumption. Midweight with a structured drape, this fabric feels soft straight off the bolt making it the perfect choice for beginner sewists or those new to jeans making. Featuring a pale blue and natural fleck stripe, this bottom weight is ideal for chore coats, overalls, jumpsuits, and all sorts of workwear-inspired garments. Stripes run perpendicular to the selvedge, though you may wish to lay your pattern pieces cross-grain for a vertical stripe.
Due to the nature of the upcycling process, there may be irregularities throughout the yardage. We encourage you to embrace these slubs and nubbly textures as they are a natural result of recycling (and reducing) cotton waste.
