Fabric lead times:
Fabrics are printed to order and delivery times can be variable. Our aim is to dispatch orders within 7-14 working days. If we foresee any delays with your order, we’ll keep you informed using the email supplied.
Fabrics on the website are sold by the metre but if you are looking for an exact size, please contact us and we can send you an invoice separately.
Although Jacqueline Milton may make recommendations on usage, it is your responsibility to ensure that the fabric you are ordering from us is fit for its intended purpose prior to ordering.
We don’t recommend our fabrics for upholstering furniture in daily/regular use or for anything that you would want to machine wash.
Because we use natural linen there will by its nature be some shrinkage when you wash you your fabric.
We recommend that you dry clean our fabric.
We strongly advise that you obtain a sample prior to placing your fabric order and we offer a swatch service to help you make the right selection.
You can order up to 5 free swatches (post and packing will be added).
Our samples are approximately A6 – A4 depending on pattern size. Please note that samples are intended as a representation of colour and texture of fabric and may not show the full design.
Please take time to look at your sample in different parts of the room throughout the day – you will notice the colours change in different lights.
Our fabrics are suitable for dry cleaning only.
Linen wrinkles easily but you can iron it on a cool linen setting.
Linen and linen blends:
Linen yarn is spun from the long fibers found in the stem of the flax plant. Because it is natural, small slubs and irregularities will sometimes occur in the weave which is part of the natural character and charm of linen. It is not perfect, so please take this into consideration when buying fabric from our website.
Most fabrics will fade after lengthy times of exposure to strong sunlight, some fabric treatments and carbon monoxide. We always recommended that our customers use a suitable lining to try to reduce or prevent fading. However, all natural fabrics are prone to fading and we cannot take responsibility for fabric fading for any reason.
We love to use natural cloths that are usually produced here in the UK. The base cloth used for our fabrics is made from natural fibre. Linen fibres can vary slightly from crop to crop and this can sometimes result in slight shade and weave variations between batches of fabric. Please note that we cannot be liable for shade and weave variations.
