Goodbye to Cotton Silk

JAN 9, 2015

Fans of our Cotton Silk will be sad to hear that we've pulled it from the Spoonflower fabric line-up. The price of that particular fabric is going up, so we've reluctantly decided not to re-stock it. We're sorry to see it go!

If you haven't tried it already, please be sure to check out our lovely Satin as an alternate. We also have new fabrics planned for 2015, so there's more to look forward to!

  • I was distraught when the silk cotton fabric was stopped! It is the only fabric that I use for my dresses. I too am willing to pay more to have it. Bring it back!!!!

  • I have to say, I’m REALLY into historical/vintage pieces and formal wear; it’s the main focus of my sewing and design work. I never saw much point in sewing “normal” clothes because they’re so cheap and readily available… I live in NYC; I can ground score all the normal clothes I need. Hell, I’m wearing a ground score right now. BUT… when it comes to truly one of a kind custom pieces, I go all-out. Silk everything. Hand-beading. Hundred year old sewing patterns on Etsy. I’ll pay extra for cotton-silk if necessary. I make my clothes with the mind set that I will wear them for the rest of my life. It’s worth the investment.
    I’m sure the satin is nice too, but I’m kind of obsessed with silk because it’s an insulator in the winter but also extra breathable and comfortable in the winter. Not only that, but it makes more sense for historically-inspired pieces because synthetics weren’t available before the 20th century.
    There’s no way I’m the only one who’s SUPER into this.

  • I am no fan of the cotton silk as it abraded badly, but I am very disappointed that you are continuing to drop natural fibres in favor of synthetics. I noticed there is no response to the questions about the cotton voile. Yes, money is tight, but cheap is not what everyone wants. Like Ellen, I am willing to pay more for quality.

  • Noooooo!!!! Please consider bringing it back! I would be willing to pay extra for it.

  • Sad to see it go… BUT the Satin fabric is stunning, it has a luxurious feel to it, it takes a print beautifully and it hangs well. I’m in love with the Satin 🙂
