FAQ

How many units do I put in the quantity box?

We cut our fabrics by the Fat Quarter, Half Metre and Full Metre. Our fabrics are listed and sold in fat quarter increments.

You will need to add 4 in the quantity box to purchase 1 metre, and so on.

Any amount you select will be cut as one continuous piece unless you explicitly contact Rosemary Wild with your requirements.

The exception is if an odd number of units are selected, the additional unit will be sent as a fat quarter.  For example, if 3 is selected as the quantity, it would be sent as a half metre and a fat quarter.  

Please note that this is a rough guide as the fabrics can vary in width.

Fat Quarter = 55cm wide x 50cm long (21" x 19") = 1 in the quantity box

Half Metre = 110cm wide x 50cm long (43" x 19") = 2 in the quantity box

Two separate units of a half metre and a fat quarter will be despatched= 3 in the quantity box

Full Metre = 110cm wide x 100cm long (43" x 39") = 4 in the quantity box

What happens if a product is shown as out of stock?

We get new stock on a regular basis and generally delete products no longer available, so if a product is showing as sold out it will usually be temporary. Therefore please check back if something is out of stock or contact us if you'd like to know an ETA.

A note about quilting/craft fabrics: these tend to be available for a temporary period only, as once the manufacturer has depleted their supply, they move on to new designs. Therefore these fabrics turnover quickly.

The craft kits are reorderable from my suppliers.

What is the importance of prewashing your fabric?

All fabrics will shrink a little bit in the wash and by pre-washing them before cutting and sewing with them, a perfect fit is ensured which won’t change after the first wash! Typically, 10% shrinkage is allowed for in all washable natural fibres. Wash before making up in the same manner as you would with subsequent washes (including drying methods). Make sure you fully open out your fabric prior to washing. It is suggested to machine wash cotton at 30/40 degrees and tumble dry on a low heat setting and press with an iron using steam on a hot setting.


Rosemary Wild cannot be held responsible if the fabric is damaged once it is in possession of the customer. Fabrics liable to mis-shape should be dried flat, or in a cool tumble dryer. Most fabrics should be pressed before cutting. Every washing machine does differ, so it is your responsibility to test wash any fabrics that you purchase from us.
