Frequently Asked QUESTIONS
How long does delivery take?
Dispatch takes 1-3 days (excluding weekends and bank holidays) depending on how busy we are. The aim is to cut all orders within 12 hrs but this is not always possible at busy times.
Items are dispatched by Royal Mail 2nd class post unless you upgrade to 1st class
Can you deliver to addresses outside the UK?
Yes – we are able to send fabrics to anywhere in the EU.
Postage charges vary depending on the quantity / weight of the fabric ordered.
Do your prices include VAT?
Yes. We are a VAT registered company. Your basket will show a breakdown of the VAT you have paid. VAT is included in the price you see upfront and will not be added on later.
Can I have samples?
We are introducing a sample purchase option on listings. This is being rolled out over the summer and will enable you to purchase a sample of a fabric to check it meets you needs before you buy larger amounts. Samples cost 50p and are subject to availability. Fabrics with a limited amount remaining may not have this option. You may order as many samples as you wish.
Why do I have to pay for samples?
When a sample is cut from a length it reduces the available fabric across the whole width of the fabric not just the corner cut out. It takes time to process requests for fabric samples and costs Caboodle Textiles to post them out to you. Caboodle Textiles does not charge you postage for sample requests.
Are the colours on your site exact?
We take great care to provide the most accurate pictures of our items. Due to the nature of digital photography and monitor colour displays, we cannot guarantee that every device will accurately depict the colour of our merchandise. Depending on your device and settings, the colour may be slightly off.
Will the fabric I buy match the samples exactly?
Most of the time yes. But colours do vary slightly from shipment to shipment.
If I buy a fabric and need more later will the colour be exactly the same?
Colours can vary slightly from batch to batch so we cannot guarantee a true colour match.
What is your minimum order?
The minimum length you can order of any fabric is 50cm, orders of multiple lengths will be sent as an uncut length.
Shorter lengths of fabric may be available as remnants and listed in the remnant section on a first come first served basis.
Are your washing and drying guidelines guaranteed?
The washing and drying instructions provided on this website are as provided by the manufacturer and we have not tested them. Some laundry advice can seem over cautious and a fabric happily be washed at a higher temp or dried in a machine however it may affect the life of the fabric. It is always advisable to test wash and test dry any fabric before making into your finished product.
Can I collect my order?
Caboodle Textiles is unable offer the option for collection of your order due to insurance and scheduling constraints.
Can I get wholesale rates?
Solid colour jersey, solid colour french terry and all jersey stripes and all ribbing have a discount automatically applied once you purchase a combo of 4 items (within a category, not across categories) This discount is a sliding scale from 5% off at 4 items – 2mtrs up to a huge 20% off when you buy 20 items – 10mtrs
If you would like to buy 6mtrs or more of a print or other fabric then please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org to get a custom quote. As a small business we don’t always have lots of full bolts in stock. However I may be able to order them in depending on time frame and availability.
A great way to get discounted prices is to join the fb group where all pre orders get approximately 20% off. I have regular pre orders with a mix of suppliers.
