Online BY FABRIC TYPE

Linen

Wm Booth Draper. http://www.wmboothdraper.com/ and

Renaissance Fabrics http://www.renaissancefabrics.net/browse/linen/

Gray Line Linen. The quality is awesome and the weave is very smooth, very few slubs. Handkerchief linen is top quality! http://www.graylinelinen.com/

Fabric-store.com is OK for the heavier linens, still have lots of slubs, but I find their handkerchief linen to be woven too loosely to be good for smocks and other underlinens that come under strain. http://fabrics-store.com/

Dharma Trading Company http://www.dharmatrading.com/html/eng/12001414-AA.shtml?lnav=fabric.html - 3.8oz linen is suitable for smocks, shirts, & caps, it's much smoother than Fabric-Store.com's of similar weight

 

 

Silk

Renaissance Fabrics http://www.renaissancefabrics.net/browse/linen/

Pure Silks http://www.puresilks.us/ Pure silks is the outlet website for a silk mill in India. Quality is really good, shipping is amazingly fast. I love their organzas.

Dharma Trading Company http://www.dharmatrading.com/fabric/silk/organza.htm - Perfect silk organza for partlets & fancy goods

 

 

Wool

Wm Booth Draper. http://www.wmboothdraper.com/ and

Renaissance Fabrics http://www.renaissancefabrics.net/browse/linen/

Fabric-Mart Fabrics http://www.fabricmartfabrics.com/xcart/home.php Really good quality wools, and usually a good sale once a quarter or so.

 

 

Cotton

Renaissance Fabrics http://www.renaissancefabrics.net/browse/linen/
