Plaid Viyella at Britex Fabrics...Swoon-Worthy!

December 17, 2012 by Britex Fabrics 2 comment(s)

This cold and rainy weather is making us want to get cozy. We want a length of scrumptious (difficult to find) Viyella to make a classic plaid shirt - perfect for chilly drizzly weekends! Make BurdaStyle’s Jakob #6013 for yourself, or for your favorite gentleman friend.  Available on Britex Fabrics’ 2nd floor, 57" wide, $27.99 per yard, and 80% cotton/20% wool. To buy this fabric, come into the store, or order via email at

    We love this scrumptious fabric too! We have some Viyella and some other wool & cotton shirting weight blends in our store. If you can't make it into the store, then I recommend that you buy our Customized Swatch Shopper Service. We'll search Britex for fabric, trim, ribbon, or lace trim to match your request, and then mail you a package of swatches. Each Customized Swatch Shopper Service is good towards two project requests, and we include three to eight swatches per project request (depending upon availability.) We cannot swatch couture lace fabric, but can swatch non-couture lace fabric. When you select from your customized grouping, we'll credit the $20 service charge towards your $75 fabric purchase* or $50 lace trim/trim/ribbon purchase (*offer good for 60 days from time of swatch purchase) P.S. We have one piece of wool & cotton Viyella style fabric online.

    Can I still purchase viyella fabric by the yard ? I shop for fabric online regularly on and pay via but the only viyella fabric offered is out of date vintage. Those gorgeous check/ tartan viyella fabrics I saw on your site are dated Dec 2012 - which makes me think that maybe viyella is not still available?
    Can it be purchased still online?
