William Morris Merton Blue Cotton Floral Fabric By the Half Metre
This licensed William Morris Merton Blue design was first produced in 1888. Merton is of course, named after Merton Abbey which William Morris acquired in June 1881 for his workshops for his company Morris & Co. The Abbey complex included buildings for textile printing and stained glass making plus fabric, tapestry and carpet weaving. The fact this beautiful design was named after such an important milestone in Morris’ life - acquiring the mill and all he created from that, makes it a really important and well loved Morris design.
Just like all our fabric, Merton 100% cotton was printed in the United Kingdom.
Measurements: William Morris Merton has been printed onto 152 cm (60") wide cotton with a 2.5cm (1") salve edge on either side. The pattern repeat is 35cm.
If you purchase more than half a metre the fabric in one order, it will be sent as one continuous piece.
As with all natural fibres, cotton will contract so slight shrinkage should be allowed for.
Care for your item: the fabric is machine washable at 40 degrees.
The William Morris Merton blue design is also available in green.
