This is my 2nd Merino purchase from A & R. Won’t be my last!
The quality of this Merino is amazing. I have made cardigans in the navy and black so far and washed and worn many times. No pilling and no sign of fading or losing its shape. I Just cold wash in the machine in a wash bag using wool wash. Now I can make my own Smitten brand type garments for 1/4 of the price of a ready to wear.
Purchased 1.5 metres of black merino jersey to make a mock turtle neck skivvy.
I prewashed the fabric with wool wash in the machine on a wool cycle. The fabric is so soft and beautiful to handle. It sews up easily with minimal rolling on the edges. The 200 gsm weight is an excellent weight but is still light and comfortable.
What I really liked was that it was a fully Australian produced and made product. The wool was also RWS sourced .
The ordering process online was easy and delivery was received promptly .
Speedy delivery, easy to order, and by far they are the nicest scissors I have ever owned. Will be ordering other scissors soon
Every seamstress deserves good scissors. So pleased to buy them from an Australian company. Great service from A&R Fabrics.
The LDH left handed midnight edition scissors are beautiful to use, cut crisply and are a good weight in the hand. The cutting length is just shy of 12cm, the weight of the scissors give good control and continuity throughout the cut.
I purchased these for one of my sewing students and she did not want to put them down, having well crafted left handed scissors is such a treat.
A + R Fabrics were wonderful to purchase from, the order arrived quickly (even over the pond in NZ), was well packaged and the wonderful personalised note adds to the experience. Will definitely be purchasing from A + R Fabrics again.
This lightweight linen is perfect for shirts, skirts, dresses. It is gorgeous in person, with such a unique combination of colors. The fabric is opaque and tightly woven and I'm sure it will soften nicely over time. It has good drape already.
I can highly recommend the Merino. Beautiful drape and easy to sew. I washed in wool wash before sewing a garment and it washed up so soft and cosy.
The fabulous colour, high quality and reasonable pricing takes a second place to the luxurious feel of the fabric, it's amazing it's so soft and perfect for turtlenecks and other layering pieces of the like. I like it so much i have it in multiple colours.
Have lost count, but I've ordered this linen in many colours, many times and I keep going back for more!
This merino jersey is just gorgeous - soft and drapey with just enough stretch. Don’t be afraid of merino jersey .. it is a fantastic fabric to press, cut and sew, it’s easy to care for and wears really well. 🙂
Beautiful quality and fantastic service, fast and hassle free. Will be returning as a customer!.
The linen I purchased was amazing quality! It was soft and opaque. From this fabric I made a shirt from it and I have found that, because of the weight, it keeps me warmer on those colder days. I thoroughly appreciated that Trin made the shopping experience extra special by including a hand written note in my order, a thoughtful and kind touch. I highly recommend A&R Fabrics!

Both fabrics overlocked and washed. Fabric washed very well and is now hanging over ironing board waiting to be cut out. All fabric I have purchased from A&R Fabrics has been of excellent quality and orders are always dispatched promptly.
I have just received my new Juki sewing machine the DX 7 and I am in love. It is even better than I thought it would be. The automatic needle threader is a total game changer. It is quiet and efficient and sews through thick seams like a hot knife in butter. The sales service from A and R fabrics was a dream too. Looking forward to many years of happy sewing
The swatch for this linen didn’t do it justice, far exceeded my expectations! It’s beautifully soft and sturdy enough for outerwear. I’d love this in a range of colours too but the natural colour is wonderful and showcases the weave.
