About Exact Color Matches

As a small business, I buy fabric and dye goods in small batches. Making an exact color match can therefore present challenges at times. Although my two fabric weights may have been dyed at the same time, they will emerge from the dye bath with slightly different shading. Often these differences are very subtle and though the two garments may have slightly different shade values, they will still look great together.

When ordering items you plan to wear together, please let me know if an exact shade match is essential. Often I can match garments using extra yardage I include in each dye lot. If fabric is available, I can cut and sew a matching item to complete your outfit. Of course that takes extra time. I will let you know if making your matched set will take extra time and when to expect delivery if part of it must be specially cut and sewn.

If you are comfortable with garment colors that have similar shades but differing values, please be sure to check the "No Thanks" box when placing an order for two or more items of the same color.

About shade matching
Quantity:

Pair it with leggings, pants or a skirt and enjoy free movement and style. Darted, trim fit through the bust flows to a trapeze shape at the uneven hem. Versatile tunic length approximately 26” center back to hem.

Hand-crafted in America using a sustainable blend of woven Mid Weight 55% hemp and 45% Tencel™(lyocell) that's preshrunk and easily machine washed and tumble or line dried. Mid Weight is a 6.2-oz. square weave with a little more body Light Weight fabric*.

If you want your tunic to match the color of pants or a skirt exactly, it's better to select the Mid Weight since all the pants and skirts are cut in that fabric. Both weights are soft and comfy and let your skin breathe.

Easy, Eco-Friendly Care

Our sustainable hemp/Tencel fabric blend is easy to care for. To enhance its wonderfully supple hand and keep your clothes looking their best, follow these eco-friendly tips:

  1. Launder in cold water with like colors using an eco-friendly detergent. To preserve original color, launder garment inside out.
  2. We recommend you air-dry your Sympatico clothes to reduce energy consumption.
  3. Because the hemp content may produce wrinkles and develop a somewhat firm hand during laundering and air-drying, tumble your dry clothes in a warm dryer for a few minutes to relax wrinkles and soften the fabric's hand. (Because hemp softens with wear, this step becomes unnecessary as your garment ages.)
  4. Promptly remove clothes from the dryer and let them cool down on hangers.
  5. If needed, touch up collars and hems with a hot iron.
  6. When traveling, roll up your Sympatico clothes then hang them up on arrival. A quick spritz with water will help eliminate wrinkles. (I find spritzing my craft fair inventory on hangers works like a charm for releasing wrinkles that develop during travel.) Hanging wrinkled items in a steamy bathroom is a great alternative to ironing also.

Thanks to hemp's anti-microbial properties you'll probably find that you launder your Sympatico wear less often, reducing the energy your clothes consume.

    I love the tunic and this is the second one I have purchased. It is comfortable, love the pockets and layers very nicely with a short or long sleeve t-shirt. Request for long sleeves or at least 3/4 sleeve is a good one!

Matching lightweight tops with midweight pants or skirts

Midweight and lightweight fabrics vary subtly in how they take dye. Even though your outfit may be from the same dye bath, one piece may be darker than the other.

If you prefer an exact match with no variations in color values, order the midweight for both garments.
