This durable fabric is 100% Pima cotton fabric printing, made up of varying thread sizes with a thread count of 240. This plain weave has a solid base. The custom printed Pima Cotton fabric weighs only 75 gsm. It is a soft, light and airy fabric, which has a little give on the bias. It’s strong and durable and allows some light to show through and slightly reveal the pattern on the reverse. Choose between reactive printing, providing exceptional colour and softness with a high wash allowance (up to 60c) or pigment printing, which sits firmly atop the fabric and has a coarse touch.
The Lima lawn is a denser fabric, with many similar qualities, it is however heavier with a higher opacity that the Pima Cotton. Pima is significantly lighter and has a plain weave.
Yes, while we do not recommend pigment printed Pima Lawn for your baby due to your design sitting on top of the fabric like glue (see the two options available) the new Pima Lawn uses reactive printing which infuses your design into the fabric creating a safe fabric. The reactive printing option also provides a higher wash allowance of up to 60c.
Reactive printing will pronounce your colours and have rich detail. Infused into the fabric itself, your design will be soft to touch and have a high wash allowance of up to 60c. Alternatively, pigment printing provides a coarser feel; your design sits strongly atop of the fabric like glue and the colours are muted.
