  • Blackout Lining

    Hi Everyone
    I feel a bit silly not knowing this but I can't remember what is the inside and outside for blackout lining.
    Can anyone help?

    Fury rubbery side in - the side that all the bits of thread etc. sticks to. Canvas side out. I wasted a whole morning googling the first time I used it cus was too proud to ask . Won't be that daft again so well done for asking!

        All blockout lining in Oz made with the coated side out(faceing glass) as this is the protection.
        Do you not have self coated blockout fabric over there?

          Are you from Down-Under then David? I note you've made a couple of references to Oz in your posts but you don't have your location under your username.....

          We do have a few fabrics over here that are already coated with the rubbery stuff but not many that I've seen. Perhaps they're a specialist product like FR'd fabrics?

          Does that mean I'm using my B/O (I call it Black out, you call it Block out?) the wrong way round with the coated side up against my fabric?

            Yes situated in Perth Western Australia,hence the need for sunblock.Coated side to glass,most of our blockout is now what we call flock coated as it gives a softer hand than the rubber backed.Several Aust. companies now export this to UK.

                    Thanks for that wil try to find manufacturer(just nosey)Most of the B/O linings are similar depending on personal choice & how you cut/sew etc.The only trouble we have had in recent times is that some makers now get the base cloth made & coated in Asia and the weave is on the bias when coated,doesn't hang or sew very well

                      OutBlack is my favorite because it is the only blackout lining (here is US anyway) that has a 100% cotton substrate.
                      Much softer hand that other blackouts.
                      As far as which side is the right side on any blackout, it depends on the person using it.
                      Some say foam side to the outside... some say foam to the inside.
                      Who is right? Well, I am not going there (but I do have a preference).
                      The good news is that no matter how way you place the lining it will perform exactly the same.

                      Warmest Regards,

                        Phew! I'm so glad you posted Susan.... was getting rather hot under the collar at the thought of being so wrong for so long. I do like to put the coated side in as I find it picks up all the little bits in tarnation and it would drive me nuts to think of it sitting there getting covered in fluff and goodness knows what.

                        I do like the Outblack but I know some others here are really impressed by the Supersoft (perhaps from Evans) they've used due to its drape and er, supersoftness!

                          We have recently changed to Outblack from Edmund Bell and love it. It is really soft to handle and the girls in the workroom have really noticed the difference especially when it comes to hand sewing the needle isn't quite so hard to get thru...
                          I took delivery of two more rolls today!

                            Penny - which of the Outblack linings do you use? Is it one of the 3-pass ones?
