Ultrasuede Soft®

 

This is the medium-weight Ultrasuede. It is just a little thicker than the Light, but still very suitable for miniatures. It does NOT fray and is sueded on both sides. Many colors have a slightly darker shade on the back, so you get 2 colors! Perfect for paw pads, clothes, and accessories and even those really tiny bears!

Vintage Rayon - Click to enlarge Vintage Rayon (Viscose)
The very desirable and rare vintage rayon/viscose velvet that is no longer made. This fabric has a 1/16" pile on a very tightly woven backing that does NOT fray.

Smokey Long-pile - Click to enlarge Smokey Long Pile
 
I had this fabric made especially for my shop. It has a medium density, 1/8" pile that lays down in one direction. The white grid backing does NOT fray and is thinner than vintage long pile, so it is easier to work with. It has white fur on a black background that gives it a very "smokey" appearance. The finish is nearly matte with a subtle sheen. It is very soft! All colors have been hand-dyed.

This custom-order fabric was a year in the making. It has a fairly dense 1/8" pile with a matte finish. The white grid backing does NOT fray and is thinner than vintage long pile, so it is easier to work with. Original color is slightly off-white, all colors have been hand-dyed. This fabric is so soft, you won't want to cut it up!

Frosted Long Pile - Click to enlarge Frosted Long Pile
 
Made from the Sassy Long Pile fabric, I have come up with a new dye technique that only colors the backing. The fur stays white for a pretty 'frosted' look.
