Lots of you have been in this week to buy shimmery, sparkly, witchy fabrics for costumes not only for your little ones but for yourselves as well. Don’t forget to take extra care with shop bought costumes as many man-made fabrics are highly flammable.
If you are at all concerned, it’s not too late to pop in to the Bridport Shop and buy our Flame Retardant Spray, suitable for home application, it makes these synthetic fibres a lot safer when the instructions are followed correctly and we’ll issue you with a fire certificate as well. It’s also a legal requirement for any fabrics in public buildings to be flame retardant treated, including curtains, stage sets and costumes. Worth bearing in mind if you’re currently rehearsing for panto season. We’ve seen evidence of a lot of pumpkin carving going on as we’ve traveled to and from Livingstone Textiles from across West Dorset. Have a great time tonight and stay safe, whatever your plans.
