What is the difference between off-cut fabric and continuous length fabric

We can only supply off-cut fabric in pieces of 1m or 2m and your choice is limited to what off-cuts we have available at any specific time. If you need 6 metres and order 3 x 2m off-cuts it is likely the pieces will come from different batches and you will not be able to use them to make a curtain or cover a piece of furniture because the colour of 1 piece will be different from that of the 2nd and/or third piece.

If you order 6 metres continuous length we will guarantee to send you a continuous piece measuring 6m from the same batch. If for any reason we cannot do this, we will contact you

Do I have to order a minimum quantity of fabric
If you want to purchase a small quantity of fabric that is not available as an off-cut you only have to order the minimum quantity of 1 linear meter. If you need more, you can adjust the length in 10cm lengths ie 1m10 1m20 1m30 etc.

Will my fabric always be sent in one continuous length?

If we are not able to supply 1 continuous piece for non-off-cut orders, our customer services department will get in touch with you to discuss the matter with you.  Off-cuts come in either 1 or 2m lengths. 

How can I find out if there is stock of a certain fabric?
In most cases the fabric is still available at the time of order. If the particular fabric is not available, we will E-Mail you immediately.
