Denim as we all know was born out of the wild west. Transferred as a working cloth made here in Lancashire until the 1980's, down the road from where we are now. Over time denim has morphed and adapted into a fashion statement. The addition of other yarns and elastane gives denim much more flexibility.

Denim is a versatile material. From traditional dark blue, hard wearing denim for work wear and bag making. To soft pale blue denim shirting and stretch denim for skinny jeans, leggings and dresses.

What is the best denim for you? Washed denim is soft and malleable and easy to sew with. 4oz denim is a perfect weight for shirts and loose style trousers. 8oz denim for all other garment types. 14oz is the heaviest denim we have. It can take some sewing but it is, the perfect denim material for traditional jeans. It is as strong a cloth as you will buy. With over 60 denim fabrics to choose from our denim range has something for everyone so you can make your own style.

We have done some work on the website recently. Putting the denim fabric into weight categories. Traditi­onally lightweight denim is anything under 12oz. However, for the purposes of the general sewer we have done so as follows;

Lightweight denim. Under 8oz. The easiest to sew; suitable for shirts; looks style trousers; leggings; (if with stretch) and dresses.

Mid-weight denim. 8oz -10oz. Good for jeans; trousers; jackets; skirts.

Heavy denim. 10oz and above. - Stiff and harder to sew. Perfect for traditional jeans; more structured garments; crafts; bag and purse making.
