We absolutely adore Oakshott for it’s quality soft cotton. It’s colourful fray can also be utilised in multiple experimental ways in embroidery.

“From pink to blood-red and deep crimson, our Ruby Reds exude romance and passion. Sharing a red warp, they glint like their gemstone namesakes. They’re as passionate and seductive as the culture of Spain, their inspiration.
100% mercerised shot cottons – each colourway combines a base colour warp with a complementary or contrasting weft thread. This produces the trademark ‘shot’ effect when colours appear to shimmer and ‘move’ depending on how the light falls. It lends extra depth and texture to your project.
With their shared warp, these shades work beautifully together – no need to worry about colour combining.
Use them for quilting, patchwork and general sewing.
Care: Our fabrics are soft finished with steam after production and most quilters do not prewash them. If prewashing is preferred, then only by hand in clean water at 30C, please.
Our fabrics are pure finished ie they don’t contain binders / wax / starch etc. The handle will therefore change very little when the fabric is washed. They may however fray slightly more than ‘finished’ fabrics and to minimise this, we recommend overlocking cut edges prior to washing.
Do not machine wash and do not tumble dry. Dark and light colours should be washed separately. Gently towel dry and iron whilst damp. Allow for a shrinkage of 3-5%.”-Oakshott
