Linen Group Shot Square

Lovely Linens

10 January 2017
I have extolled the virtues of linen cloths in the past, and also the shortcomings of linen. Namely that it creases, and it would appear that no amount of extra finishing can resolve the problem.

You might have noticed if you watched Michael Portillo, or his coats that is, his variously coloured coats – they weren’t made of linen of that I am quite sure. But he did have a striped one that fairly obviously was, because having sat on the train, for whatever period of time he did sit on the train, he came off looking like a wreck.

It is at this point you’re making a statement that you like natural fabrics regardless of what they look like.
I tease a little… I think linen is a wonderful cloth. So we've added some fabulous quality new linen fabrics to our site. Made for one of Ireland's best makers of linen jackets.

Get Set for Christmas

06 October 2016
It may seem a little earlier to be talking about Christmas fabrics however, I know from experience that when making and sewing for the festive season it is best to get a head start; leaving yourself plenty of time. Therefore we have added new Christmas fabrics to our site, some are 100% cotton and others are a mix of 65% Poly, 35% cotton. Christmas can be a dividing subject, when it comes to decorating are you are traditionalist or do you have a more modern taste? We have tried to get a good range of prints in our Christmas fabric range to cater to different tastes and colour schemes, why not take a look and see if there is something to suit you?

Wonderful Wools

14 May 2015
The secret is finally out, why did it take so long? Wool is a timeless fabric and if looked after well will last a lifetime, a huge resurgence in its popularity especially for those wonderful worsteds which are made on our fair isles has led to high demand and sadly due to the scarcity of the finer fabrics; higher prices demanded from those who supply us. Here we have a selection of cloths we hope you will love......

Cotton Jerseys - A Sign of the Times?

Anyway, for those of you that need some now, here is what we have –

25 November 2014
It is definitely getting colder, so the Croft Mill team share some of their favourite coat and jacket patterns as well as their suggested fabrics in this blog post.

Do you want to see some beautiful new dress and craft fabrics?

18 November 2014
While I was writing this I was confronted by Andrew, and another bloke from where I know not, humping a rickety old table from our original croft mill premises which is known as Marilyn’s packing table. And the reason it has been brought here is that we didn’t have a packing table the right height; well at least not the right height for an average size person. Perhaps I will be asked to assist in the reassembly at some time in the not too distant future.

Any road up... we are here to talk about cloth and as is my want I shall start at the beginning and no doubt people will put them in a different order by the time you come to read it.

It Is Getting Hot In Here

17 July 2013
Cotton lawn fabrics for the hot weather. It is getting hot in here, which is saying something as the walls here are 3 foot thick and our offices are north facing. We are not complaining, we love it, well that is all of us apart from Carmen as she is humping the bulk of the cloth around, all day long. These beautiful lawns and a few hot cups of tea may aid the discomfort. Is it true that hot drinks cool you down? It is certainly true that a lovely cotton lawn will, have a look at our latest designs…….

Fed up of the rain? The wrong clothing? Keep dry with waterproof fabrics

20 March 2013
Will it never end? Are we just in the wrong clothing? Here in Lancashire it is sodden underfoot which is frustrating with little ones especially toddlers who have a habit of falling over. We have some waterproof fabrics which are easy to sew, perfect for making up into dungarees and if that sounds a bit too much for the novice sewer, try making them into a pair of trousers with an elasticated waist, some of these fabrics can manage without being hemmed if you really wanted express sewing. Hey presto, the kids keep dry, clothes protected and most importantly - no tears!

Don't ask us how we get this, we just do and this is a snip as the new 60" wide highland tweeds can set you back £78 p/m.

Fancy a Good Read? Our Free Fabric Catalogue is Out Now.

30 January 2013
That is if you enjoy reading about fabrics, it is not your average catalogue and has been known to provide some light entertainment. We don’t have lots of extra catalogues as they are done by request only but it is a free catalogue and it can be a nice alternative to the goggling at a screen. The Croft Mill catalogue, “The Good the Bad and the Ugly”, is not so aptly named this time as it really should have been the “Good the Great and the Beautiful” as we have some fabulous fabrics in. It will be arriving on your doorstep over the weekend, if it doesn't blame Royal Mail but I am sure they won't let us down.

New Wider Width Cotton Poplin Designs

15 January 2013
Do you remember Holly Hobbie? Some of the designs in our new cotton poplin range just remind me of things I had when I was a child. This range of wider cotton poplins are all printed onto a lovely quality cotton poplin which will make up into beautiful garments or craft products, perfect for children’s wear, shirts, dresses and also soft enough for bedding although I realise you are limited to single use with the width.

Superb waterproof and water repellent fabrics just in

19 November 2012
Here is a little selection of so called waterproof fabrics, apparently we are not able to call anything waterproof any more, since once you sew it you might alter the structure of the thing if the coating becomes impaired. Notwithstanding all else these are as near to waterproof as you will get and do repel water.

New denim fabrics in brown, black or blue

19 November 2012
The full blown proper cotton denim is almost as getting rarer these days in that most of it is made in China and most of it gets made into garments in China so we have to look for alternatives and latterly we have found this little batch. There is not a lot of any of it but they are all 60” wide.

Forsooth_Pure New Wool_I

Vintage Pure New British Wool Tweed Cloth

20 June 2012
As I speak to you, the temperature outside is 7.5 degrees and here inside this particular part of the mill, it is less than that. So I thought to myself why not. We’ve got a little collection of tweeds, fine tweeds, woven on very old looms by Midsummer Weavers in the 1980's. Maybe that is not classed as vintage but they are old. I’d like to think that they were hand looms but I don’t think they are. The cloth is only 1 m (39”) wide, in fact it’s not quite that wide. It has a little bit of a rough hand to it, not a lot, but it is not a silky cloth, in the way that a modern worsted wool cloth is. They are genuine tweeds woven with different coloured yarns.

During the last few weeks since speaking with you we have been fortunate/blessed by one or two major players in our game seeking solace in money rather than cloth and I know from experience that once you are into cloth you are into it.

Vintage Dress Fabrics

16 January 2012
I think these fabrics are a bit of a find. They are 100% spun rayon (viscose), they are only 91 cm (or a yard) wide which means pretty much they have been woven on narrower looms, since they don’t make them any more, there is a chance that these cloths are reasonably old, hence the vintage bit.

New Fabric Collection

31 March 2010
Much has been said in recent times about Gordon Brown and his suitability to lead the country. What on earth does that mean? He follows what people tell him he ought to be leading and as a result, because they in turn don’t know what to do because they haven’t got a leader to follow, they then turn to the Humphrey Appleby’s of this world who knowing that the others don’t know get away with murder. That is why your bin will be emptied when a civil servant says, not when you know it ought to be because it’s full…………. Anyway back to business, our new fabric collection is ready and the catalogue is on its way or Download it now!

Here at Croft Mill we have been busy sewing, yes we sell fabric but like to make things too, there are too many fabrics and not enough time to create the amount of clothes that we visualise. One of our customers sent me an image recently that said, 'The one with the most Fabric dies', yes it does sound a bit dramatic but even though there are rooms full of fabric here, between us we also have boxes and cupboards full at our homes.
