Peppered Cottons by Pepper Cory for Studio e are 100% shot cotton fabrics that almost fall into the solid colour category. The term shot means that the weft is shot through the warp, but uses a discernibly different colour thread.
Because the warp (lengthwise threads) and the weft (side to side threads) are different colours, the resulting shades are muted and variable combinations of the original colours.
Above all, shot cottons have a tactile hand-woven quality and display deep colours well since all threads are dyed prior to weaving. There is no wrong or right side to shot cottons–a plus for quilt-makers.
