This colour has been discontinued

Released at Needlework Expo March 2021

Linen is sold in 1 yard pieces.  All fabrics are dyed on a Zweigart base unless otherwise noted.

Due to the nature of the hand dying process and the structure of fabric counts, the color displayed on the item is a representation of the color dyed on 36 count linen.  The color could be lighter or darker depending upon the base linen and the weather during the dying process.

Whilst we do our best, we cannot guarantee colorfastness of any hand dyed fabric.  If you wash your fabric, some inert dye might be released.

The size and fabric count of each cut is measured prior to dying.  Some shrinkage could occur during the dyeing process.

Description

Dragon Fruit are grown in northern Australia.

The plant is native to southern Mexico and Central America. Today, it is grown all over the world.

It goes by many names, including pitaya, pitahaya, and strawberry pear.

The two most common types have bright red skin with green scales that resemble a dragon — hence the name.

The most widely available variety has white pulp with black seeds, though a less common type with red pulp and black seeds exists as well.
