At Cheapfabrics we offer a complete sample service of all the fabrics available. In order for us to offer you the best possible service and to help us keep our prices low, we make a nominal charge of £0.99 for each swatch with no further charges for postage and packaging.

The average size for each swatch is approx 6" x 4". If you are in any way unsure about your purchase, we always advise customers to order a sample first for personal evaluation of the required fabric.

If you choose to order a product without ordering a sample first and it is not what you expected, we do not refund returns or exchange so please consider purchasing a sample first.
