Peppered Cotton is a fabric from Studio E. This 108″ wide cotton backing fabric is woven using two different thread colors. The warp, or the long fibers running the length of the fabric, are a very light near white gray. The weft, or shorter selvage to selvage threads, are a darker steely gray. The result is beautiful and yet hard to describe.
The fabric is a solid gray, but due to the fact that the color is made up of tiny little dots of darker and lighter gray, it gives it an extremely subtle varied finish. You can just barely make out the crosshatching effect of the weave although it is very finely woven. It reminds me a lot of the high quality material that you might use to make a suit. The texture is also soft, making it an excellent choice as a backing fabric.
