Vintage black and gold striped wool blend yarn dyed kimono fabric - by the yard


This listing is for one yard (36 inches or 91.33cm) of fabric. There are multiple yards available. If more than one yard is purchased then you will receive the entire yardage as one complete length. Please note that if you order a large number of yards the shipping cost may be overestimated. I always refund shipping overages of $1.00 or more.

This beautiful, wool blend fabric is unused, old stock and would make an amazing scarf, quilt, pillow case, table runner, boro patch or skirt. It is in excellent condition. This fabric can be used for apparel but please remember that kimono fabric is not as wide as other apparal fabrics.

This fabric has a woven pattern of golden-brown colored stripes over a black background. Deep, indigo blue colored "slubs" are found throughout the fabric. This is a yarn dyed fabric. Yarn dyed fabrics are created from yarn that is dyed BEFORE weaving it into fabric. Due to this, the fabric has a wonderful variegation and depth of color. The warp threads are dyed a golden-tan and black color while the weft threads are black with blue sections. These blue sections create the deep, indigo blue colored "slubs" that are seen in the fabric. These blue sections also have a higher sheen than the rest of the fabric. This makes the slubs more or less noticeable depending on the reflection of the light.

Since this pattern is woven, the front and reverse sides of the fabric are identical.

The last photo shows the color of the fabric most accurately. Crayola brand crayons were placed in the photo for a color comparison.

The wool has a woven texture and slightly stiff drape. This wool is not "scratchy" or "fuzzy" but has a texture and feel that is similar to a canvas.
