The Grange quality is a medium weight poplin which uses strong and durable 2 ply yarns. Like the majoriy of Acorn’s fabrics, Grange uses Egyptian cotton which has a long stable (fibre length) so can be spun into fine yarns. The Grange collection consists of classic end on end’s, stripes and checks. All the designs are yarn dyed which gives a richer and more stable colour. (The Definition of Poplin and other textile terms can be found in the glossary )
End on end or fil-à-fil is a classic weave and a must for all wardrobes. End on End is a type of closely woven, plain weave cloth created by the alternation of light and dark warp and weft threads. Typically woven using white thread with another colour to create a fabric with a subtly heathered texture that, from a distance, appears as a solid colour.
This particular fabric is from our archives. It was produced more than twenty years ago and, at that time, the use of 90cms or 36″ width fabric was commonplace and indeed a preferred width of artisan and bespoke tailors and shirtmakers. It is limited in availability and so once it has been sold, it will not be re-stocked. We suggest that in this width, you would need 3mts of narrow width for a shirt rather than 2 mts of the wider width fabrics.
