Here's a neat color site.
I think the colors are
truest of all the color
lists out there:

and another one!

Please forgive the appearance of my website as I change from FrontPage software to Dreamweaver software. There are a lot of weird things happening here.... Thank you for your patience!

CLOSING SHOP FOR ANNUAL PENNSIC

July 24 2014 toAUGUST 15, 2014

Class Act Fabrics   ...Other fabrics...

Fabricmonger to Crowns of the West Kingdom, SCA

   Here reside cottons, rayon, ramie, tencel, polyesters, acetates....or possibly something I haven't thought about yet.
   Even though cottons, ramie, hemp and other plant fibers are "period" I've put them all on this page. There are period patterns and weaves of acetates here also, and very interesting "GLITZ".
    This page is a mix of interesting, eclectic fabrics that I couldn't resist buying for one reason or another. I hope you find them as intriguing as I do.

    I've worked on the colors of the swatches to try to match the original fabric as close as possible. However, the brain seems to see colors differently than the camera.....sigh.

#371
57" 100% cotton lawn
This came from the factory with a hangtag on the roll saying it is "100% cotton lawn".  This also has a slight weft stretch. Due to some laws somewhere, this can be labeled all cotton. However, it is a beautiful piece of cotton, with a lovely surface and a joy to fondle. I think the 'non-existent something or other" in this makes it perfect for a sharp blouse or heirloom sewing project for an active child! (and the price is right!)
