Fading Fast: A Color Experiment
One thing that needs to be considered when buying fabric for a studio or for performance is will the color be affected by direct sunlight? Well, don’t worry! We did it so you don’t have to worry when making your choice in color.
Just like our own delicate skin, the sun can damage your beautiful silks. Now, we aren’t scientists- but what could be more fun than throwing some fabrics outside and tracking when they fade? We tested tricots, tricots with stretch, and interlock fabric by laying them out in direct sunlight on the grass.
Our results are as follows:
Time Took to Fade
Within One Hour
After 2 Hours
No Change (After 11 hours)
Color of Fabric (All Types)
Red, Tangerine, Royal Blue, Black, Lavender, Purple, and all others
All of our fabrics’ strengths will not be affected by direct sunlight, but Jade and Turquoise will fade quickly if left out long. So, if you have a portable rig, plan to spend the day outside, or perform in a sunny area, it is in your best interest to get one of the colors in the third row.
