Non-woven fabric?

Ken_Berg | Posted in Fabric and Trim on

Greetings all,
I’ve wondered over here from the Fine Homebuilding side of things (that would explain my “tag line”). I’m trying to track down a non-woven fabric, very similar to fiberglass mat in appearance. The sample I have is the liner under my old sofa. When I held a match to a small sample I cut out, it melted like nylon. I have a source, a cellulose insulation supplier, but the 8 foot tall roll comes 375 feet long, a good height – but way too long for my project. Any suggestions as to where in the Seattle area I might look, and what it might be called?
Thank you,
Ken

    hmmmm. ken, my first thought is that if it was used as a liner in your sofa, it might be some type of nonwoven interfacing. there are lots of these available in different weights; one prominent mfgr. is Pellon. try taking a sample of it to a good fabric store in your area, and see what they have that's like it. [their quantities (and prices/yd.) will probably be very different from those of the insulation supplier.]

    you could also ask an upholsterer....s/he will probably know what product is commonly used to line a sofa. if they don't sell it, they may be able to direct you to a commercial source for their industry.

    if these ideas don't help, write back and tell me about your project. maybe i'll have some other ideas, given more info.

    for Seattle fabric stores, you can try Jehlor Fantasy Fabrics, 730 Andover Park West, Seattle, WA 98188; 206-575-8250; or Seattle Fabrics, 8702 Aurora Ave. N., Seattle, WA 98103; 206-525-0670. i'm sure there are lots of others; these just come to mind.
