Brown candlewick vintage fabric (by the half metre)


  • Classic candlewick fabric – exactly like you would find on a bed during the 1960’s and 70’s
  • Brown with textured self coloured stripes running along the weft (horizontal)
  • Knitted fabric that stretches slightly across the weft
  • Medium weight with a soft drape
  • Estimated to be from the late 1960s or early 1970s
  • Measurements: 175cm wide – sold by the half metre (5m available at the time of listing)
  • Excellent condition, never been used, deadstock fabric still on a roll. From a haberdashery shop that closed in the early 1980s.
  • Recommended for soft furnishings
  • Estimated to be acrylic from a burn test, probably mixed with polyester to give some of the stripes a slight shine
