Fabric for drapery liners. Options for aesthetics, protection from sun and moisture, to block out light, or as an insulation layer.
When buying facemasks or sewing your own, be sure to use fabrics that are either GOTS certified (Global Organic Textile Standard) or Oeko-Tex 100 certified.
The fabrics in our Facemask Fabrics Collection are suitable for use in sewing facemasks. As with all our fabrics, these are free of phthalates and any other harmful chemicals. Phthalates are in the vast majority of textile printing inks. They are extremely disturbing endocrine disruptors that are potent in a minuscule quantity - one in a billion.
Check for certifications, as when you're breathing through a facemask you'll want to be assured the fabric is safe. Please see our recent Blog Post Why Your Choice of Fabric for Facemasks Makes a Difference.
Slipcover fabrics need to have a high weight to strength ratio so that the slipcover is light enough for you to wash it in your home machines or carry to a cleaner.
If the fabric you want to use is not pre-shrunk, you’ll want to wash before fabrication to take all the shrinkage out before fabrication. (There is no reason to wash our fabric before use except to remove shrinkage. We use no chemicals of concern at any step from field to finished fabric, so there is nothing to wash out.)
Viscose is a regenerated cellulosic fiber made from cellulose, most commonly wood pulp, but many plants can be used, such as bamboo. It is not a synthetic fiber. It is not made from petroleum. We’d like to eradicate synthetic fabrics altogether. Offering viscose is a step forward in this direction. See our website page on viscose to learn more. The fabrics in our Viscose Blend Collection shown below are just the beginning. We'll be carrying more soon.
