General Information on Fabric and Fabric Care

Tinsmiths General Fabric Information

Tinsmiths’ Natural Fabrics are predominantly made from natural fibres. These fabrics can shrink when washed and can be sensitive to changes in humidity, with a typical shrinkage of 3-5% on first wash. Dry cleaning can also cause shrinkage so allow extra material to take this into account.

Colour Variation

Colour variations are unavoidable between production batches. We cannot guarantee that current production will match previous orders or original samples. Where colour match is critical, please request a batch cutting.

Measurements; Pattern Repeat and Fabric Width

Details of both fabric width & pattern repeat may vary from batch to batch. Please allow a variation of +/- 3cm from stated measurements. Where critical please ask for confirmation of current batch specification.

Sun Fading

We recommend always lining curtains to protect the face fabric from fading. Where sunlight is particularly strong, a blackout curtain lining should be considered.

To prolong the life of curtains it is a good idea to swap the curtains over from time to time to keep the fabric area exposed to sunlight at a minimum.

For bay or corner windows, where the curtain face will be unprotected when open by curtain lining we recommend the use of UV window film.

Upholstered furniture and window seats can fade in sunlight; in south facing rooms or where furniture is close to windows we recommend the use of UV window film.

100% Linen

Natural Linen can have occasional ‘slubs’ in the weave which are not faults but characteristic of the fibre.

Upholstery Fabric

The fabrics which are suitable for upholstery use can be found in the Upholstery Fabric category on the Tinsmiths website. Refer to the fabric description for the ‘rub test’ or upholstery grade of each fabric.

Unless otherwise stated all fabrics are not FR treated. We can provide both domestic and commercial FR (flame retardant) treatments for upholstery fabric. This service usually takes 2 weeks and costs £6.75/m with a minimum quantity of 4 running metres ie. a single piece of 4m or more.

Washing

Refer to the particular fabric for care instructions, not all our fabrics are washable. In general, furnishing fabrics are not suited to regular washing and cleaning which can diminish both the handle and finish of the cloth.

If you are making loose covers or unlined curtains which you intend to wash and from a washable fabric, we advise you to pre-wash the fabric before you make up. When washing Tinsmiths’ fabrics, use a powder/liquid that has no bleach or optical whiteners, wash at 30°c and do not tumble dry.

Loose Covers

Use a cool wash (30 Max) on a short cycle, finishing with a short spin. Do not tumble dry but shake out thoroughly and dry as flat as possible. Ease the covers back onto the furniture when still slightly damp as this will allow them to stretch back into the correct shape.

Unlined Curtains

Unlined curtains can be washed (follow the instructions for Loose Covers), pre-washing before making up will reduce shrinkage.

Lined, Interlined and Blackout Lined Curtains

DO NOT WASH. Hand-made interlined curtains can only be dry cleaned by a curtain specialist. Dry cleaning can also cause shrinkage
