Sample Swatch of Absorbent Fabric
Wondering what a fabric looks or feels like in person? Order a sample swatch of any of our absorbent fabrics. Swatch size is about 4" x 5" and is labeled. Each swatch is 80 cents plus shipping, which simply covers our cost.
See the product pages for details on each fabric.

This is so helpful when ordering fabric online. You kind of have to be able to feel the fabric before knowing if it's what you want. In the past I've just ordered a yard or so to start out, a bit of a gamble. I would never have bought certain fabrics, though, because I didn't know what they were like. This time I ordered a bunch of swatches, and it was very helpful! Plus, the pieces are big enough to make mini wipes or nursing pads.

It helps to actually see and feel the fabric before purchasing. There are a number of fabrics that I am not familiar with and how they will perform, so it is nice to see a swatch before ordering.

I was not sure what this fabric was when purchasing other items and I like the fact that I was able to receive a sample so I can see if this product is what I currently need. The sample size was perfect.

I ordered a couple of these to get a good feel first hand of the fabrics I wanted. I should have ordered two of each of the absorbent types so I could test them out and still have one on hand for future reference. These were nicely labeled, a decent size and came in very handy and helped me plan out my project better since I don't like having to guess if the materials will be alright when ordering a whole bunch of them online just solely based on the product description. I would definitely order some more of these and recommend to anyone wondering which fabrics they wanted to choose from before ordered for their projects.

I ordered a few samples and they are a good size , labeled so i knew what was which. Only thing I wish there were all the sample pieces on one screen because I forgot to get samples for my self for the stay dry fabrics but that's more my doing.

Product sample was all the description claimed, and have made an order.

I had ordered sample swatches of the absorbant fabric, and was thrilled with the size of the pieces! They were actually big enough to get a real good feel of of what the fabric was like. Thank you!

I ordered swatches on a friday they were shipped on a tues they arrived the following tuesday. I contacted customer service on the friday after they shipped. I got a reply the following tuesday after the admittedly checked the tracking info and saw thaey had been delivered. They cited my shipping choice for the long delivery... I will not be ordering any of my business supplies from them.
Swatches were helpful

It was good to be able to touch and feel the different types of fabrics the store has available. Would definitely recommend ordering the swatches before ordering yardage so that you can be 100% certain it is what you want.

I LOVE that I can now get swatches of the fabrics that DSS sells. It really helps to see what the fabric is like before purchasing a bunch and then not liking it. I ordered the heavy fleece after getting a swatch of it and plan to order the bamboo velour soon - THAT ONE IS LOVELY!!
Swatches may not be returned except in case of store error.
