Frequently Asked Questions…….

 

Where is Wattle Hill Fabrics Based?

What about local pick-up?

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer a local pickup service - even if you do bring afternoon tea.

How does your fabric pricing work?

All our products are priced in Australian Dollars and include GST.

Mostly our fabrics are sold in increments of 50cm (1/2 metre) lengths which are cut as a continuous piece.

For example:

If you enter a quantity of 1, you have ordered 50cm of fabric.

If you enter a quantity of 2, you have ordered 1m of fabric.

If you enter a quantity of 3, you have ordered 1.5m of fabric.

If you want 4m of fabric, you will need to enter a quantity of 8.

 

Please note however, our elastic & pom pom is sold by increments of 1m lengths or some elastic is sold by the roll.

Each product description includes information around how that product is sold, so be sure to check it out if you are unsure.

 

What is GOTS & Oeko-Tex Standard 100?

We are so glad you asked!

Wattle Hill Fabrics proudly offers a wide range of quality fabrics, of which a large selection is manufactured to certain world recognised standards. Below is a short description of each standard.

 

The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) was developed through collaboration by leading standard setters with the aim of defining requirements that are recognised world-wide. These standards ensure the organic status of textiles, from harvesting of the raw materials, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing, up to including product labelling in order to provide credible assurance to the end consumer. Find out more here.

 

The STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is a worldwide, consistent, independent testing and certification system for raw, semi-finished, and finished textile products at all processing levels, as well as accessory materials used. Textiles labelled this way are proven to remain below the set limit values of certain harmful substances. Find out more here.

 

Where can I find washing/care instructions?

Awesome question! We want to help you get the best from your new fabrics and knowing how to care for them is a great way to make that happen!

Each product description includes the recommended care to be taken when washing that specific product. We also recommend prewashing your fabrics before use and be sure to use a colour catcher with your bold coloured prints, especially with our organic ranges.

 

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept payment via Visa, Mastercard, American Express, PayPal, Apple Pay, Google Pay, ZipPay, PayPal Pay in 4 and Bank Transfer (Direct Deposit).

Details for Bank Transfer (Direct Deposit) payments can be located on the invoice sent to you via email once your order has been placed.

Is there such a thing as having ‘too much fabric’ in my fabric stash?

No. You can never have too much fabric. Even when your fabric cupboard is bursting, and you can’t close the door. There is always room for more. Happy Sewing!

 

What are the chances my overlocker will be threaded with the correct thread the next time I go to use it?

Not looking good my friend. This is the unicorn of sewing, so if it does actually happen, make sure you celebrate appropriately with the happy little dance this occasion deserves!
