Lake - Peppered CottonPeppered Cottons By Pepper Cory for Studio e are 100% shot cotton fabrics that almost fall into the solid color category.The term shot means that the weft is shot through the warp, but uses a discernibly different color thread.
Because the warp (lengthwise threads) and the weft (side to side threads) are different colors, the resulting shades are muted and variable combinations of the original colors. This means that viewed from different angles, the two shades produce subtly different visual effects.
Above all, shot cottons have a tactile hand-woven quality and display deep colors well since all threads are dyed prior to weaving. There is no wrong or right side to shot cottons--a plus for us quilt-makers!
