Oakshott Fabrics, run by Michael and Rose Oakshott, make the most wonderful shot cottons using different colour threads for the warp and the weft of the fabric. The result creates beautiful luminous and iridescent hues in fabrics that are 100% cotton, but look like silk. These artisan fabrics really are a quilter’s dream. Visiting their showroom you can’t help but fall in love with the depth of colour and quality of their fabrics, as well as the warmth of the Oakshott team.
