Most rope-dyed indigo denim fades to a medium blue with some wear, and, with time, all the indigo chips off to reveal the white core of the yarn. Not these!
Usually, white yarns are dipped tens of times into indigo vats two stories tall. Don’t let the quintessential indigo warp and white weft fool you! These yarns were reactive-dyed blue before being dipped in indigo. So, with time, the indigo will fade to bright blue.
The standard weight 12.5oz selvedge denim is great for year round wear, substantial enough for cooler weather and light enough for summer months.
The fabric itself starts crisp and rigid with slightly bumpy uneven twill lines from the vintage shuttle looms. The denim is finished with a red and bright blue selvedge ID – an indicator of what’s to come.
