How much fabric will I need for a suit/trousers/jacket etc?
The fabric required to make a piece of clothing will vary greatly depending on your measurements. Send me your measurements and I will let you know the amount of fabric needed to make the article of clothing.
Is the fabric suitable for upholstery?
Out of the fabrics we offer, only a few kinds should be used for upholstering. Tweed works well, for example, while mohair / cashmere does not.
Do you combine postage?
U.K. buyers: We can combine postage. However the cost is dependent on the total gross weight of the fabrics.
Overseas buyers: The maximum for Royal Mail Airmail regular post is 2 kilograms per package and anything above that weight would have to go by UK Parcelforce or courier service and the cost is more expensive and depends on the weight.
Shipping can be combined for export but it will depend on the final gross weight of the multiple items.
I want a fabric in a specific colour. Do you have it?
The best way to search for specific colours in our fabrics is to type the desired colour into the Shop’s search box. This will filter the displayed fabrics to display only fabrics in the colour you entered (navy, for instance).
Can I make an offer on one of your listed fabrics?
Do you offer deals on any of your fabrics?
Yes. Click on the text that reads “Offers Considered” in the Shop Categories sidebar, and eBay will display all current products for which we will accept offers. Similarly click on “Special Deals” in the sidebar to view our current deals.
What do the numbers on your fabrics refer to? Super 120, 130, etc?
The terms Super 100, 120, 130, 140, 150 or 160 are what determine the material of your suit, which refers to the fitness of a wool thread. The higher the “Super” numbers are, the better and finer the quality of the wool. Super 140s and up are very soft and fine, perfect for a special occasion.
