C2 - Cotton Crinkle - ruby **
Fabric Name: Cotton Crinkle - ruby ** (a 2 star fabric)
Content: 100% cotton
Description: this is the same weave as a cotton crinkle gauze fabric, but heavier weight. It is still light enough to breath, perfect for warm and humid weather in particular. The crinkled texture also eliminates the wrinkling issue, they fall right out and / or blend in with the texture. Although it is a woven, because of it's lightly crinkled texture, it has a little bit of give to it. In short, this is the kind of fabric that feels like your favorite shirt from the moment you put it on. The ruby is a gorgeous shade of red that's very difficult to capture in a photo...a rich blue-red, like a poinsettia flower.
Care: machine wash / tumble dry
Shrinkage: vertical 4 - 5% / horizontal 0 - 4%*
*The horizontal stretch (circumference) is a temporary one. When you first pull this fabric out of the dryer, it will be smaller around. But within a few minutes of wearing it, the fibers relax, and the fabric stretches back out to it's original width (much like a pair of jeans).
