Our GOTS Certified Organic Cotton Calico is a medium weight fabric suitable for use all year round. The perfect choice for extremely chemically sensitive people. Made to Order – Calico Organic Cotton Flat Sheets without cuff. Made in our Organature Australia Sewing Rooms with Certified Organic Cotton ‘loom state’, non-washed or treated Calico.
Discounted as this is discontinued stock due to the fact that approximately 10 – 15% Shrinkage will occur with all ‘loom state’ Calico products and we cannot guarantee the shrinkage amount exactly, this is why we are no longer making fitted sheets and these are the last of what we have in stock.
Size: 1 x single fitted sheet.
Our Calico is in ‘Loom State’ – not washed or treated with any chemicals – is quite a stiff and wrinkled fabric before being washed, however there are absolutely no chemicals used throughout the manufacturing stages, which makes it ideal for people who are very chemical sensitive and for those who want a 100% Natural fabric. (Please note: it does contain some natural cotton oil and natural starch to assist in the weaving process, which is permitted under GOTS and is essential to weave the fabric). To help soften the fabric naturally, we recommend washing in diluted Vinegar.
Useful Information About Calico: Sometimes people think that if they buy calico somewhere, it is always pure calico and means it has no treatments. They are wrong. Most, if not all, calico sold in shops and by fabric wholesalers are treated with formaldehyde. Naturally our 100% Organic Cotton Calico produced to GOTS certification standards is not treated in any way. The only additive in Organic Calico is the Organic Corn Starch which is needed to stiffen the yarn to be able to weave the fabric. It is the best stiffener available, so good, in fact you can eat it.
Care Instructions: After a several washes the fabric will soften and reduce in wrinkles. We recommended the first wash at between 40-50 degrees to assist in this softening and an initial shrinking process. Do Not use commercial softening products – Vinegar and Soda Crystals are a good natural substitute to assist in this process instead.
Please Note: Approximately 10 – 15% Shrinkage will occur with all ‘loom state’ Calico Products. However we cannot guarantee the shrinkage amount exactly. It is due to this, that we no longer offer Fitted Sheets, however our flat sheets are made large enough to tuck under the mattress and our pillow cases are cut slightly larger to cater for this too.
