Critter Pattern Works - FAQ
Yes, with the exception of the lamé (which is included in some of the patterns) and UltraSuede™. We don't use poly-cotton fabrics, they just don't have the same "hand" as 100% cotton.
Barb's Elegant Designs - Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, only 100% cotton is used. A higher thread count than most commercial fabrics is used for much of the painted fabrics, as this produces a smoother surface to paint on.
There are several reasons for this, but the main reason is the choice of the base fabric, or greige goods (pronounced "gray goods") that are chosen. Most fabrics are printed on bleached muslin, but this muslin can come in many different qualities, many different weaves (number of threads per inch in each direction) and even the weight of the threads can be different.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, I also make cases out of upholstery fabric, which is usually a synthetic fiber such as polyester, and therefore, much heavier. I am also experimenting with canvas to make a heavier, outer case (with carry straps) for travel or bad weather. Watch my fabric sample page for different fabrics currently being offered!

Two-ply cotton fabrics feel silkier and make a more comfortable shirt. Two threads are twisted together to make one yarn. This yarn is then lightly woven, creating a very smooth and strong fabric.
BODEN - Frequently Asked Questions
This is one of the most frequent questions. Actually is not relevant, what really matters is the kind of cotton, the title of the thread, the density of them and the quality of the finishing proccess. In countries like England and Switzerland, very well known for its fabrics, you can find poor done fabrics as long as the highest of the qualities. And if you still want to know, we use fabrics from England, Italy and Spain.

We test all our fabrics for durability. All of our fabrics are repeatedly test-washed to see how they hold up under the stress of regular cleanings. Our fabrics don't fade or wear after repeated washings. So you can machine wash our suits (cold)! (We don't recommend using the dryer, however: let the suits hang dry, which won't take long.) We use extra-long Vision zippers, which are rugged and durable, and long enough to make the suits easy to put on and take off.

Some FAQ's regarding the DermaSilk product range
Whilst both fabrics are natural products, silk has the advantage over cotton as it is a protein fibre of animal origin rather than a vegetable fibre and has the ability to mimic human hair. The long strands of silk provide a smooth, friction free garment which will not irritate the skin, even on the most active toddler. In addition, DermaSilk is capable of maintaining a stable body temperature in whatever climate and absorbing up to 1/3 rd of its weight in moisture before it begins to feel damp.
Strabell - Active Dry FAQ's
Since all shoes are made differently, we could not count on the materials inside the shoes to prevent moisture from returning back to the skin. Moisture has no adhesion to our Drymax fibers, so it moves through the inner Drymax layer until it finds something (in this case, the outer cotton layer) to absorb it. We put a layer of cotton on the outside of the sock to attract & hold moisture away from the skin.
Egyptian cotton is considered the best quality and longest staple cotton in the world. Using the best quality cotton results in a stronger fabric with a smooth hand.
