12.7oz Scuro Italian Selvedge Denim by Merchant & Mills

$34.00 per metre

A dark traditional selvedge denim made in Italy with an ecru an red selvedge.

This soft selvedge denim would be suitable for patterns like the Heroine jeans, Clementine, Whittaker, or the Ottoline and Foreman jackets.

Selvedge denim can be identified easily by the striped selvedge. The jeans will be more durable and long lasting thanks to being self-edged and generally, due to the unique stitching, are more distinctive from other jeans. Selvedge denim jeans will keep their shape no matter how many times you wash them. This cloth is likely to soften and lighten in colour over time with continual washing.

From Merchant & Mills:

We recommend pre washing your denim before sewing. Putting a large piece of medium-heavy weight denim into the washing machine can sometimes lead to white creases in the denim, this is because it is a stiff fabric so it doesn’t have room to move around. We recommend doing the following to help this not to happen:

  • Wash your denim on its own for the first wash.
  • Sink your denim in water before hand, letting it fully absorb, so you are putting in the denim already wet.
  • If you can break up your denim fabric into half this will help.
  • For the first wash use a delicate 30 degree cycle with non bio detergent on a low spin.
  • If any white creases develop ironing whilst still damp will help.
  • Do not tumble dry.
  • When you have made the garment we recommend washing it inside out.
