Raisin is a deep red with tones of brown. The brown in this colour almost makes the red appear dirty and matte.

Melanie is a compact cotton with a heavy wash for a relaxed soft feel. Compact cotton is a new technology of spinning. It creates a tighter and more compact weave and is designed to reduce the hairiness of the yarn. You will notice this in the construction of Melanie as the cloth is not transparent and has a smooth flat surface. This fabric is solid dyed and each colour in the range is developed and milled exclusively for us.
All our COTTONS meet the Oeko-Tex standard, we only use mills which are certified and checked yearly. Simon the owner of Potters has been in the business for 25 plus years and built up a solid relationship with the mills we work with and sourcing agents. We really pride ourselves on this as we know we can trust the mills we use for quality and standard.
Melanie is the perfect cloth for pants, it is breathable stretch. This cloth can also be used to make full shaped tops and dresses.
