What is lining fabric used for?
Lining fabric is used to make clothing more wearable and comfortable, add finishing touches to clothes and furniture, and hide any imperfections that slipped through the cracks. As such, it is often a thin fabric that’s smooth and supple to the touch. Cotton, silk, polyester, and viscose are commonly used as lining fabric. Generally, these tend to be very versatile: from dress lining fabric, coat lining fabric, jacket lining fabric, suit lining fabric to lining fabric for bags or even lining fabric for curtains! Whatever you’re working on, there’s probably a kind of lining fabric that is perfect for your project.
Types of lining fabric
There are a lot of different kinds of lining fabric material, with each their own special features and applications. We’ve compiled a quick overview for you to pick whichever suits your project best:
- Cotton lining fabric: feels very good against the skin because it’s soft and breathable. Cotton lining fabric is ideal for summer because it is moisture-wicking.
- Polyester lining fabric: polyester is both wrinkle-free and durable. Polyester lining fabric has a beautiful sheen and is available in 100% recyclable form: it’s good for your design and the environment!
- Silk lining fabric: has a shiny appearance and can easily add a luxurious look to your design. It’s also very suitable as a warm lining fabric for the inside of coats, bags, or curtains.
- Rayon lining fabric: very breathable and static-free. Rayon lining fabric has a silky-soft feel and drapes well. It’s great for tops and blouses.
Because there are so many different kinds of custom lining fabric, there’s always one that will fit with what you’re working on — regardless of whether you’re looking for a stretchable fabric, an anti-static lining fabric, or a fabric with (or without) a print.
