this is a piece of beautiful thick cotton that i printed and dyed by hand. it is technically a quilting muslin, but it is much thicker and smoother than other muslin you have likely used.
i applied hot wax onto the surface of this fabric in several layers and then dyed it both green and deep orange. the whole piece unfolded is shown on my clothesline. i used my kelp pattern over printed with my seafoam pattern.
after i permanently set the dye into the cotton, i thoroughly rinsed it and then boiled it to remove all batik wax. after boiling, i washed the fabric one last time in synthrapol which does deactivate any excess dye.
care: machine wash in cool or warm water. hang to dry to extend the life of the fibers, or tumble dry on low with other laundry.

Some orders can take longer, depending on a few factors, such as how big your order is, the season (order early for holidays!) and whether or not we have everything in stock to make your item at the moment you order. If your item will take longer than 2 weeks to ship out, we'll let you know before we begin working on it.
