Washing instructions

A bit about cord:

The number of "wales" is the number of ridges per inch. 

4.5 Wale = jumbo cord
8 Wale = standard corduroy
16 Wale = a betweeny
21 Wale = needlecord

Be careful with cord to make sure you check that the nap is all going in the same direction. If you stroke the fabric and have the smoother feel to the nap going down the colour will look lighter so if you want a true colour (especially for black) then have the smooth feel heading upwards.

Test pressing is really important as you can easily mark cord and remove the ridges with a heavy handed iron. Try layering two pieces of cord right sides together when pressing to protect the fabrics integrity.

We sell our fabric in 10cm increments so that you can get exactly what you need. For example, if you would like 1.8m of fabric you will need to select 18 units. Orders of more than one unit will be cut as one continuous length unless requested otherwise.

We work hard to photograph our fabrics in natural light or use our suppliers images but the colours you may see may still differ slightly to the original fabric.
