Kaffee Fassett shot cottons

We don't' really stock plain fabrics here at celticfusionfabrics - but for a little while I had being humming and hawing over stocking Shot cottons by Kaffeee Fassett, they really are beautiful cottons in the most beautiful colours. For those of you who have not an idea what I am talking about - bear with me ...

Shot cottons are not true solids, they are woven using cotton thread which is dyed in small batches. Variations in color and small imperfections in the weaving are a natural part of the process and creates soft and subtle shifts in color.  Tonal solids are less harsh/vivid than true solids.  There are more than 50 colors in the range. We have about 10 in stock at the moment - but we will be slowly building up our stock... 

These delicicious soft cottons would be beautiful for dressmaking and scarves .. not to forget quilting ...
