So....in naming this wool, I couldn't decide if it made me think of barnyard chickens scratching in the coop or ancient Byzantine textiles dyed with cochineal. I guess the romantic historian side of my personality tipped the balance!
Use this little plaid of deep red, navy and cobalt as it is or over dye it with a nice antique black for a good background color..
Byzantine is a mill dyed 100% wool fabric.
Our mill dyed woolens are sold in fat half-yard increments:
One fat ½ yard is 36" long by approximately 30” wide
If you purchase more than ½ yard, then, when possible, your piece will be sent as a full width of continuous yardage*:
1 yard is 36" long by approximately 60” wide
*Occasionally, when there is low stock for a particular fabric, continuous yardage may not be available. Please let us know if your project requires continuous yardage.
Our wool kits* for our appliqué designs are created especially for each design and are carefully prepared with ample wool to complete your project. The wools in the kit will generally not be the same wools used to stitch the original and are intended to give a look similar to, but not the same as, the original. Keep in mind that the photograph accompanying the pattern is meant as a guide only; your piece will be uniquely your own.
* Please note: Unless noted otherwise in the product description, our kits do not include threads, non-wool fabrics called for in the design, buttons, or other non-wool items.
