FABRIC & PRINT SELECTION 2018
JENNYTHREADS FABRICS ARE NOW 90% AMERICAN GROWN, MILLED, ORGANIC & RECYCLED!
HAND DYED SILK
With our new focus on sourcing domestic and sustainable fabrics, we now use silk sparingly for a few special styles or as an accent,
as a ruffle on a dress or binding on a shirt collar, and for our neckties and Collage Scarves. Jen personally hand-dyes all silk fabrics from white using general eyeballing recipes, spontaneous color layering, and a variety of Japanese shibori hand-dyeing techniques.
Silk fabrics and patterns are one-of-a-kind; seasonal colors should be expected.
ECO- FRIENDLY HAND PRINTED jERSEY
We use all eco-friendly jersey fabrics, and we preshring and hand print them in-house at Jennythreads Studio.
Recycled Jersey: soft, light-mid-weight. 65% polyester recycled from water bottles 35% recycled cotton, milled in NC USA.

Choose from these winning pairs when ordering two-tone pieces such as the Cardinal Cloak, Cicada Cardigan, Sleeved Carnival Cowl, Triangle Dress, Mermaid Skirt, and Horseshoe Skirt. Order print body with stripe accent or reverse it for stripe body with print accent. Our fun Facet Scarves are made from these combinations, with even a few more unexpected pieces thrown in.
*limited quantity- order soon before this color runs out
WOVEN FABRICS: RAYON & DENIM
Since Jen hand-bleaches the lightning pattern on the Blue Stretch Denim and Black Lightning Rayon, some color variation should be expected.
American Blue Denim is heavy and stiff but stretchy, Blue Flock Print Organic Cotton is medium weight non-stretch, and Black Lightning Rayon is stretchy, flowing, and drapes beautifully. It can bleach from black to brown, cream, yellow, or even lime green, so expect some variation.
INDIVIDUALLY PRINTED ON RECYCLED JERSEY INFINITY SCARVES AND T-SHIRTS
NEW! Jen hand-prints her original illustrations on our recycled jersey Wildlife Infinity Scarves and Jenny-printed T-shirts. Expect black ink on light jersey and gold or silver ink on dark jersey. Our Cicada Cardigan has been very popular with the Chipper Squirrel, Blackbird, or Screech owl on the shoulder.
