  • Wool is Not Just for Winter!

    May 12, 2017 by Dina

    _mg_8737 Spring has sprung, and it seems like a great time to pull out your lightweight garments and put away your wool. But not so fast! Tropical and lightweight wool make wonderful spring or summer suits, tops, and dresses. In a lightweight wool suit lined with rayon Bemberg, you'll be comfortable in virtually any weather (other than the sticky kind of heat where the only way to keep cool is to jump in a pool).

  • Find a Piece of Outlander at Britex Fabrics (

    March 8, 2017 by Britex Fabrics

    bridge Have you ever found yourself exploring a new city and then become awestruck by an unexpected finding?  That is what happened to me on my most recent trip to San Francisco, California.  This trip was meant to be a getaway to a big city, introducing my children to all the joys of San Francisco.  I relished the opportunity to share my favorite activities and expose them to new experiences.   From cable car rides to appreciating architecture and art – we found ourselves making memories that would last a lifetime!  However, it was our interest in exploring a quaint street in the heart of Union Square that led me to one of my most memorable experiences.  I found myself facing the back entrance to the world-renowned Britex Fabrics!
