- Mustard Yellow Cone Mills Denim - From Cone Mills, a famous US denim producer, this fabric is deeply saturated and nicely soft to the touch. And the color is not too bright; the khaki color weft threads mute the vibrancy and deepen the rich color. Heavyweight, it is sturdy but not too thick, which makes it a great option for jeans. This denim is just gorgeous option.
- Cone Mills Slub Indigo Denim - A true indigo, also from Cone Mills, this denim is soft and smooth, and surprisingly thin for its weight. The slub warp yarn means there are slight variations in the twill weave, thus adding some visual interest to the dark face of the fabric. If you're looking to sew a classic dark pair of jeans, this is the fabric for you. Great for Morgan Jeans from Closet Core Patterns or Persephone Pants from Anna Allen Clothing.
