Delta is a stock buy from Japan. This means we have limited quantity and we cannot reorder. The great thing about our stock buys is the price is low for high quality fabric.
Delta is a lightweight denim perfect for shirts and lightweight pants ect. It comes in 2 colours light and dark. The 2% pu gives the fabric a small amount of stretch.
Rope dyed denim is recognised as the highest quality indigo denim dyeing technique. This is due to the high level of colour uniformity and the rich colour that is achieved. Other dying methods such as slasher dyeing where the yarn is soaked in indigo baths, will not produce an even and consistent colour shade throughout the width and length.
Rope dyed denim is created by taking the cotton thread and twisting into a rope. The rope is then shortly and repeatedly dipped into indigo resulting in a dyed surface while the core remains a cotton colour. This process of dipping the yarn could be repeated up to 12 times, until desired colour. The ‘ring dyed’ yarns fades faster than yarn that are completely soaked with indigo, creating the denim look.
All our rope dyed denim in made in Indonesia with Japanese machinery and technology. As it is dyed with indigo dye the denim will need to be washed separately first before use. In the first wash, colour will run from the fabric but the indigo will intensify. The fabric will also soften, as it will wash away the starch that has been applied during production.
This fabric is very versatile as it is not sheer and the weight works for about any garment. perfect for tops, dresses, pants, skirts, jackets ect.
Our denims are indigo dyed. They need to be wash separately for the dye to come out, but also to wash the starch out so they soften ALOT! After the first wash you will find the dye settles and minimal will come out in the next washes.
Hand wash in Warm water. Do not Soak, Bleach or Wring. Drip Dry or Dry without delay away from direct Heat. Warm Iron. Dry Cleanable.
You will find our denims have minimal shrinkage about 2-3% if any. This is very unsual for denim, this is due to the high quality cotton and dyeing techniques. But as a precaution we ask all our customers to wash there fabric before sewing, just in case…
