Stretch denim with a striking digitally printed design in shades of denim blue, turquoise,  caramel and off white. It reminds me of an aerial view of ocean waves crashing against sandstone rocks. Or a cross-section of marble, or blue-toned agate. Or a galaxy? You decide! Whatever you think it looks most like, I think we can agree that it will make the most show-stopping garment!

The pattern repeat is a massive 144cm.

The reverse is white.

This is a Lady McElroy fabric, so you know that the quality is going to be exceptional.


This fabric is perfect for jackets, skirts, jeans and some dress patterns. It has 10% stretch which is great for wearing comfort, but avoid patterns that require more than 10% stretch or you will have problems!

It is recommended to always pre-wash your fabric prior to starting your project. I would also recommend overlocking or zig-zagging the cut ends before your wash your fabric to help cut down on fraying in the machine. Wash separately the first few times in case of colour run. Some suggest using a cup of white vinegar in your first pre-wash (use a cold cycle) to help lock in the dye.

To help avoid getting washed-out lines in your denim, I recommend pre-wetting the fabric and making sure it is completely open (not folded) before putting it into the washing machine. It also helps to not use fabric softener. Wash at 30 degrees
