Cotton Care - old


Merlette uses the finest quality natural cotton fabrics sourced from around the globe. 

Each fabric is carefully developed especially for Merlette.

Cotton Lawn 

Our Cotton Lawn is most notable to Merlette, as it is our signature fabric. Being our lightest-weight cotton, it feels soft and comforting. Through the light, your silhouette is complemented by the subtle sheerness this fabric has to offer. Its natural soft hand and washability make it the perfect travel companion for any season.

Cotton Poplin 

Our Cotton Poplin carries a more defined structure and elegance, as it creates volume through the precise drapery and cut. The smooth finish lends depth and softness to the luster of the silky surface. The natural sheen from the high twist yarn makes it suitable for day to night.

Tumbled Cotton

Our Tumbled Cotton is our specialty fabric, as it reveals a certain effortless grace. Whatever time of the day you slip it on it’s always ready with its wrinkle-free wearability and natural luster. The airy feel allows for a loose fit against your body, which is the perfect counterpart to its unique délavé structure.


Having a more thoughtful connection with the clothes you wear is at the core of Merlette. 

We return to cotton time and time again because this fabric is at its best when it is hand washed or run through the gentle cycle.
