Available in both dark and light shades, Poplin also called Tabbinet is a woven fabric originally created in France in the 15th century from a combined silk and worsted yarn that delivered a soft yet durable cord like feel to its surface. Modern ranges of poplin are made with a combination of cotton and/or elastane. It resists creasing and is easy to sew and iron. Our poplin cotton shirting is used in garment making and is of a heavier weight than standard poplin ranges. Whaleys supply a small range of poplin fabrics starting from only £4.09 per metre. Buy poplin direct from our online store using any major credit or debit card. You can also request samples of your favourite fabrics to feel the quality of our products yourself.
