Dungeness is a reliable twill, woven of 100% organic cotton. Its softness and matte appearance make it a natural for upholstery, drapery, top of bed, and apparel.
Made from American-grown organic cotton, the fabric was woven at the first (and still only) mill in the United States that produces fabrics to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). Our next production run of Dungeness may not be an All American made product because this one and only GOTS certified mill in the US has given up its expensive GOTS certification due to lack of demand. Help us create demand! Dungeness is an organic FABRIC, not just a fabric made of organic fibers. Learn what that means.
We named this fabric after the crab, because, besides loving its sweet meat (and feeling guiltless about eating it because it's a “Best Choice" according to Seafood Watch published by the Monterey Bay Aquarium), the Dungeness crab (Metcarcinus magister), is native to North America.
Wash in cool water and dry on low heat; shrinkage is 8% in length and none in width. In hot temperatures, Dungeness will shrink a bit over 10% in length the first time you wash it in hot.

*A discussion of what the abrasion ratings mean.
The fabric is GOTS certified through weaving, meaning that all GOTS requirements as to chemical use, water treatment are followed:
SAFETY: No known or suspected toxic chemicals have been used in the manufacture of the fabric, so you won't find them residual in the fabric you are using.
And like all Two Sisters fabrics, Dungeness has no flame retardant or stain repellant finishes, no finish of any kind.
