Looking for silk/dyes/fabric that dyes beautifully?
Post By Static. 21/11/09, 10:42 am

I recently ordered a bunch of silk swatches from Dharma Trading to pick which fabric I'll be using for one of my costumes next year - and this site is AWESOME! The silk swatches pack had 28 different silks in it, and cost about UD$6 with about 1.50 shipping. It arrived within a week on the slowest shipping option, and all the fabrics look to be really high quality.

http://www.dharmatrading.com/ <-- this is the site, and their selection of swatch packs is formidable! If you're looking at doing any kind of complicated dyejob, I thoroughly recommend looking here if you can't find anything locally. They carry a lot of cottons too, and have information of the dyeability of all fabrics they carry :) Very pleased! Not too pricey, either - some of the fabrics are, but there's not a massive difference from local fabric suppliers; particularly given the quality of the fabric. Two thumbs up!

I've ordered a few things from them this year, and they're great! Love the range and the prices are pretty good :) I might look into that swatch pack, sounds very handy :)
