Rated 1 out of 5 by Fabracadabra NO, you do NOT need this fabric!
Contrary to the previous reviewer (2013), I received defective/damaged fabric (2016). It is also a lighter indigo than shown in the photo, which I could live with. However, there are 2 serious problems with my fabric:
1. All along the fold-line is a bleached-out stripe, which makes me think the bolt had been stored for a really long time in some well-lit area (in direct sunlight?).
2. Either the dye is not uniform throughout the fabric, or there are other bleached out areas. There are obvious rectangular areas of what I judge to be properly dyed fabric interspersed with lighter 'stripes.' (the narrow sides of the bolt?)
I will be seeking a refund as this fabric is unusable.

I recently purchased a few fabrics with fabric.com for the first time and this was one of them. I'm pleased with this chambray beyond measure. The fiber content being both cotton and linen produces the most interesting texture. It's luxurious looking, yet casual. It's also lightweight without feeling flimsy. So, it's perfect for chambray shirting. Please, if you're looking for a chambray, do yourself a favor and don't skip over this unique shirting!
