Nullarbor cami - 112-162.5cm / 44"-64" Bust 

Needles + thread: Microtex 60/10 are our needles of choice for this fabric.  Satin weaves are generally a 3 over, 1 under weave meaning there is a longer surface thread on the sewing surface.  This is what creates the super smooth surface, but also can make these weaves prone to snagging if you're using the wrong sized needle, or a blunt needle.  

Changing your needles throughout a silk project (or other satin / sateen projects) is suggested.  For what it's worth, the cost of a couple of needles far outweighs getting to the final top stitching and snagging your beautiful garment!

You can use a silk, cotton, cotton / polyester, or an all polyester thread for sewing your sandwashed silk. Match to Gütermann thread number:  in 100m or 250m.

Sandwashed silk does best when pre-treated and cared for with hand washing.  We suggest using a tiny amount of gentle detergent or baby shampoo, in cool to cold water.  

By sure to rinse your silk several times to ensure you've removed all traces of the detergent.  Lay flat on a drying rack or hang to dry in the shade.

Ordering online

Placing your first online order?

Ordering from a new store, or placing your first online fabric order can feel a little risky!

A+R Fabrics strives to create an easy + enjoyable shopping experience, whether it's your first of tenth order with us. 

We've tried to include as much information about each fabric as possible, but we welcome any questions you may have about project suitability, etc.

We offer swatches as a way of viewing our collection prior to purchase. 


We offer free swatches to AU + NZ customers so that you can check out our fabrics in person. 

This way you can check the colour, weight, handfeel and even run the swatch under your sewing machine to ensure it's going to be the right choice for you project. 

Swatches are avaiable to friends in other areas - the website will charge a small fee to cover postage. 

Order Fulfilment

A+R is a micro sized (sole operator) business which means our fulfilment times can be a little longer than some of our friends in the Industry. 

The current fulfilment time is 2-3 business days.
