Here are the answers to some questions we're often asked. We hope they are helpful, if you have any further questions which haven't been covered please let us know with the contact us form.
DO YOU SEND OUT SAMPLES?
Yes, you can order samples in groups of 5 for just 25p plus postage with our samples request.
IF I ORDER MORE THAN ONE QUANTITY OF THE SAME FABRIC WILL IT COME AS ONE UNCUT PIECE?
Yes, the first size option will be for a quarter, sixth or an eighth of a yard or metre of fabric.
These options are best for ordering smaller quantities. For example two 45cm x 55cm units would make a 45cm x 110cm piece.
The second and third size options are best for ordering larger pieces at the full fabric width. For example three 25cm x 110cm units would make a 75cm x 110cm piece.
If you would like individual cut pieces you can request this in the special instructions section in the shopping basket or send us a message with your requirements before you order.
WHICH MEASUREMENT IS THE FULL FABRIC WIDTH?
The last two size options on nearly all listings are at the full width of the fabric. For example 110cm or 150cm, the felts come from 90cm width rolls.
