Rayon challis and cotton flannel
Very happy with my purchases! The challis is strong, has beautiful drape, and great colors. Haven't sewed anything up with them yet, but excited to try! The flannel was great for my students' winter circle skirts. Much better than big box store flannel.
A lovely sample
I ordered this sample with a few more and I'm really impressed with the product. I really appreciated that all the information I could possibly need was put at the top of the sample too. The rayon is beautifully soft, it works well as an against the skin fabric. It's a little more saturated in real life than in the website picture, I took my picture in morning/neutral light, so it will likely be more saturated under the average room light.
Great quality rayon challis
I buy the rayon challis from FWD constantly. The quality is great and the colors are beautiful and accurate to the online photos. Pricing is great - highly recommend.
This site was a breeze. Shipment came quickly and the quality is very good. I have discovered a great source. Thank you!
Beautiful color! Soft to the touch
I was really wowed by this fabric. I originally was in the market for poly crepe but couldn't find any I was happy with so I went to rayon challis as my alternative. The color is stunning and the drape is really nice. The fabric is super soft and cool to the touch, I'm really impressed! I can't wait to work more with it! Very satisfied
Very nice fabric
Nice weight, not too thin, beautiful rich color. Haven’t sewn with it yet, but I think it will be fine.
