Returns & Refund Policy

Threads of Green Fabrics operates a ‘no quibble’ Returns Policy. We will issue a refund for goods returned to us that have not been cut and are in perfect condition. We do not refund outward or return shipping charges. However, if, in spite of our meticulous quality checks, you need to return fabric because it is flawed, we will refund shipping charges.

We request that returns are made within 14 days of the date of your invoice and we recommend that you request a Shipping Receipt/Certificate of Post from your shipper or Post Office when you do so.

Once we are satisfied that the returned fabric is in perfect condition or that it is genuinely flawed, we will issue the appropriate refund within 15 working days.

General fabric information, samples

Swatches of fabrics are available for purchase on each fabric page
A metre is 39.37 inches long so it is approximately three inches longer than a yard.
Fat quarters are pre-cut pieces of cotton fabric. They are taken from one yard of fabric cut in half lengthwise and then in half widthwise. The dimensions are approximately 18″ x 22″ (46cm x 56cm). A long quarter yard cut from a bolt would measure 44″ x 9″ (112cm x 23cm).
Every effort is made by our photographer to ensure true colour reproduction of our fabrics. However, there are many variables over which we have no control and we cannot guarantee perfect colour replication on your screen. If you are colour matching, we recommend ordering a swatch prior to your main purchase.
No, they do not. We have 1,000’s of fabric in stock at any one time. Some of them turn over very rapidly and never make it to our website. If you have a fabric need that is not answered by our ranges online please contact us at sales@threadsofgreen.ie and we will do our best to meet your requirements.
If you buy your fabric in bulk, we save time so you save money. Our discount rates are as follows:
