    • The fabric is £12.40 + shipping £12.50 – at todays exchange rate that is 31 dollars but of course it will change daily.

  1. Hi,
    I need about 20 metres good quality fabric to sheets. Width at least 220 cm. I think that Egyptian cotton will be best. Colour white or off-white. Have You some minimum quantities to deliver? Can You send some little samples of 2-3 qualities. What are the prices of fabric/metre and the freight to Finland, in Euros, please.

    Best regards
    Evita Ahonen, Peilikuja 7, 38250 Sastamala , Finland

    • I will send you swatches of the Egyptian cotton fabrics – they are a beautiful quality. We can send as little as one metre – it is 304cms wide.

  2. Hello,
    Do you offer a swatch service for a reduced price? I need swatches of your pre washed linens, cotton lawn and muslin, as well as anything you would consider ideal shirt weight.
    Thank you
