Licenced William Morris Design Strawberry Thief 100% Cotton Drill Fabric by the Half Metre.
This licensed William Morris design was first produced in 1883. The design was a triumph for Morris as it marked the perfecting of the indigo-discharge technique of printing at Merton Abbey. The design was inspired by William Morris’s observation of the thrushes under the strawberry nets at his home, Kelmscott Manor.
Measurements: The 100% cotton drill is 152 cm (60") wide with a 2.5cm (1") salve edge. The pattern repeat is 14cm
The cotton drill is the heaviest fabric cotton we print on and the 100% cotton cloth, just like all our designs, is printed in the United Kingdom.
If you purchase more than half a metre within the same order, the fabric 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.
