Org Satin Poplin (now called Organic Poplin) is a fabric of greater quality than ‘Percale’ or ‘Sateen’. Sateen is a looser construction and has a tendency to pill. Poplin is a fabric which in the past was used for top quality men’s and ladies shirts. ‘Satin’ because it is soft, luxurious and crisp, it is not shiny.
Our Org Satin Poplin is Available in Natural, Oxy bleached White (NO optical brighteners) and now also in a range of the latest decorator colours. We have deliberately used Low Impact Dyes (No AZO dyes and No Formaldehyde) to create this colouful palette to provide a stylist alternative yet minimise the chance of allergic reactions.
Organic Calico is Org Poplin in its original woven state; no softening or any other finishing, no Chemicals and the best one to use for those who are extremely chemical sensitive.
Organic Suede Flannel 280 lightly brushed. Natural, used for mattresses, futons, mattress underlay, mattress and pillow protectors, curtains and curtain lining.
Organic Suede Flannel 210 Lightly brushed; A superior fabric to flannelette. Natural (No Dye or Bleach) and Yarn dyed check pattern: winter weight quilt/duvet/doona covers, tea towels, PJ bottoms, dressing gowns. Flannelette is woven from a different type of yarn than Flannel. The yarn produced for flannelette is different spinning technique, it is faster to spin and the short fibres have not been removed; final brushing of the fabric by the mill produces the ’fluff’. Flannelette, produced in Asia, frequently contains formaldehyde. Our ‘flannel’ has been woven with a yarn which takes longer to spin and the short fibres ARE removed. Final brushing produces the superior ‘Suede’ finish.
Please note: winter weight fabric is only 140 cm wide; full width is used in the centre. The special joins are very small and fall mainly outside sleeping area.
