Shot cotton is a woven fabric with one color yarn in the "weft" and a different color yarn in the "warp". The effect is beautiful and almost iridescent. The term Shot cotton comes from a single throw of the bobbin that carries the weft yarn through the warp yarn... it is referred to as a "shot".
This method is closely associated with Shot Silks (or changeable silk), but Kaffe Fassett has made it popular for quilter's with his line of shot cottons. The colors are irresistible, rich & vibrant. The fabric is a bit lighter and silkier than most regular quilting cottons. The hand is gorgeous, with a great drape and smooth finish.
