Excellent quality fabric from England. The color fabrics are dyed on one side like fashion fabrics with a Hand Dyed effect. HD fabrics have been surface treated with digital textile printing using pigment inks to give a hand dyed effect. More consistent in color and pattern than hand dyed. One side is in color; the reverse side is white. Colorfast and lightfast in all but the most vibrant colors, such as orange. May be hand washed in cool water as recommended for needlework.
