If you want to compare, we sell calico in several different weights - take a look at our calico here. Osnaburg fabric has a softer drape than calico even though it has quite a coarse weave. This plain seeded craft fabric also generally comes in a narrower width. Osnaburg fabric is a natural unbleached undyed cotton fabric which gets its name from the city of Osnabruck in Germany, where it originated. Originally it was made from flax yarns and then later cotton was used. Our osnaburg is a natural seeded cotton fabric, and is a great natural plain fabric for crafts.

Colours can appear differently on screen, so although every care has been taken to represent them accurately, some variations may occur from real life. To check colours are as you expect we recommend you order a sample, to see and feel the fabric in the flesh. Free samples are available for all fabrics! Colours can also vary between dye lots, so please ensure you order enough for your project.

So we can package your fabrics beautifully for posting, they will be taken off the roll and folded. We try our best to always send fabric in one continuous length although this is not always possible, we will contact you if this is the case. Some fabrics are also on sale in our shop in Bridport, Dorset, so on rare occasions stock may not be available where it appears to be online. We do our best to avoid this and many fabrics can be reordered, again if this occurs we will contact you to discuss the options.

To keep your lovely new fabrics in the best condition we recommend checking out the Product Info for details on how to care for them. Washable fabrics should always be hand washed, before cutting and making your projects, in order to allow for shrinkage.
