Roswell isn't only known for its attractiveness to alien forms of life; in the midst of New Mexico's desert, it boasts a long history and some impressive architecture. Indeed, Will Rogers once said Roswell was the prettiest little town west of the Pecos. This fabric may not be the prettiest fabric west of the Pecos (particularly since Asheville, where the fabric lives, is actually in the East), but it's a winner nonetheless. We love the intense mustard color with its honey undertones.

Designer Marylou Marsh loves french terry, which she describes as "a great fabric because on one side it has the nubby texture of a sweater, and on the reverse it is smooth like a heavy jersey. It is a great fabric to tailor, as it holds a shape well. It's excellent for jackets and hoodies because it is quite warm, working like a thermal because of the layer of trapped air. It also has wool-like qualities, which make it great for skirts and warm casual pants."

Combine it with some of our other French terries - Taos Earth Light French Terry, Coral Reef Light French Terry, Sand Dune Light French Terry, and Mountain Lake Light French Terry to create a colorful patchwork throw, or choose to use it either as a single layer or doubled for a set of towels.

Colored using low-impact, fiber-reactive dyes, as always. The fabric weighs 8 ounces per square yard and 13 ounces per linear yard. It's knit in the US (from American-grown cotton).
