New Swimsuit Fabrics

Tons of new swimsuit fabrics hit the shop this week including animal prints, camouflage, birds, and abstracts.  All these prints are 82% Nylon/ 18% Lycra, 60″ wide with UV treating to reduce fading by up to 50%.  All are heavy enough to go unlined but we always do recommend a swimsuit liner if used for swimwear.  You can also use this amazing fabric for activewear, leotards, yoga wear, etc.  Pair our quality black solid with a pop of color in these new prints for an amazing combination!


Also don’t forget about our swimsuit elastic and plastic S-Hooks for bikini closures!

So many choices in Swimsuit

Swimsuit Fabric has hit The Fabric Fairy once again, and this time all the prints are medium-heavy weight with great stretch and superb quality.  Not only for swimsuits, many use swimsuit fabric for activewear including hot pants, yoga pants, tennis skirts, or anything that needs to move with the body.

Because we have so many new prints and solids come in, we decided to split our swimsuit category into “Prints” and “Solids” for easier browsing.

Here are a couple of our newest swimsuit fabrics!

Wholesale is now By the Bolt

We have made a slight change to our wholesale program here at The Fabric Fairy.  Before we would invoice you for shipping cost after your order was cut and weighed.  This was met with confusion by some customers because we heavily advertise our free shipping over $125 for domestic retail orders.  So now instead of “wholesale bolts” we offer By the Bolt.  It is basically the same thing; you can order an entire bolt at a discounted price but now our flat rate shipping applies!  Easy peasy, no additional invoicing required.  Happy Shopping!
