  • Which Thermal Lining?

    Hi. Client has requsted thermal lining which I don't use that often. There seem to be two types - single pass thin fabric or a fleecy bonded type. The prices are very different. Which do you generally use and can you suggest a supplier.
    TIA

    I would only ever use the fleecy bonded type for blinds, Sue. It doesn't drape very well and does curtains no favours. I'd get a few samples from Edmund Bell or whoever you usually get your linings from. Or possibly from M&D if you will only want enough for this one job.

      I have used both as required - but by the fleecy type I think you might mean the one that is brushed/lofted on one side?
      I think a member had excellent results with the coated thermal making a stair curtain for her workroom which stopped heat loss upstairs to an attic room? The lofted kind does add body to the finished curtains a bit like a v light interlining but without all the interlocking etc.

      Most suppliers sell both so it depends whether you want to buy a roll or cut......and delivery charges etc.

          Sue, Having recently opened an account with Hallis Hudson I was able to ask for some swatches of the thermal linings they do to show a client who didn't want interlined, but wanted something else. The 1-pass was what she chose over two brushed sateen thermals, (one was poly-cotton, one 100% cotton) The brushed sateens were alot more expensive than the 1-pass, but she wasn't choosing merely on price. I thought all three were very nice ( face fabric was a Designer's Guild linen), and particularly the brushed had a more 'lofted' feel.

            I really like the lofted lining. It adds body and a luxury feel as well as being warmer than ordinary cotton sateen, but doesn't add the extra labour cost of interlining so can be more acceptable to some customers.

            Best wishes

              I like the lofted when not using interlining but I think it does add quite a bit of weight also. I've used Hallis Hudson's thermal (1 pass) quite a lot as well & find it has quite a nice drape & has worked well in draughty homes. I've used it on the back of roman blinds too in draughty homes.
