How should I care for my finished suede project?
We do not recommend machine washing your suede project, and it is advised that you remove stains promptly to prevent staining. Experts recommend dabbing rubbing alcohol on with a soft sponge or cloth, blotting the stain to lift it out of the fabric. Faux suede can take a little bit more water, but this should be cold and we would advise you to hand wash your item. We also recommend that when you have completed your project you protect it with a stain guard.
How is suede fabric sold at Spotlight?
Fabric such as suede is sold by the metre at Spotlight, so that you are able to purchase just what you need. Although we would advise you to buy a little extra fabric just in case of mistakes. Whilst we continuously endeavour to keep your order in one piece this is not always possible. This is because of the size of the manufacturing rolls, for example, if you order more than five metres it is likely to be in two or more pieces.
Is there anything else I need to consider?
