Dimity

Dimity Fabric is a lightweight fabric which is usually made from cotton. It is woven in a way that creates fine, raised stripes or checks. Dimity Fabric is typically left un-dyed or plain white in colour, although it can be patterned. It is generally used for dresses, blouses and nightwear. It is a fairly sheer fabric, yet is very hardwearing and does not yellow easily like many other fabrics. It is used extensively in upholstery and interior fabrics because of these properties. Dimity takes dye really well and can be dyed various colours, yet the patterns created by the construction of the weave are usually thought of as being decorative enough.
