Hello all

 

As it is difficult, when starting out, to navigate to finding the proper tools, I figured we might start a thread/list for questions pertaining to shirt supplies.

 

At the moment, I have a bit of interfacing from Harodite industries. Both fusible and non. Its not completely to my liking yet not horrible.

 

I have before, used a bit of woven fusible collar interfacing from black and sons found here.

 

I find it agreeable, its stiff yet has a soft pliable feel to it. Not as stiff and rigid as the harodite but it is heavier.

 

It says its from germany. Does any one know an interfacing manufacturer in germany that it might be from?

The interlining from Germany is from Wendler.

it is 36" wide

Harrodite sells Wendler

are you buying direct from Harrodite?

 

I also use Etacol and Davos.

we usually wash the lining first.

 

Alumo has excellent lining/fusing as well  The web lining is very expensive but worth the price..

Hello Shirtmaven,

 

Yes I buy direct through Harodite but I only have books 2 and 3.

 

For non fusible I have only used the Davos Med-Firm, the Etacol doesnt seem to far off in firmness.

 

From the woven fusible book, nothing seems to stand out as firm really.

 

Ill shoot an inquiry off to Alumo.

 

Thank you!

In the UK, Acorn Fabrics have a pretty good range of non-fusible shirt interfacings. I've not had any luck in finding anyone selling decent fusibles (in cut lengths to retail customers) over here though, so if anybody has any tips, they'd be much appreciated.

just ask them for the wendler book.  they keep a small percentage of the styles in stock.  but enough of a choice

I often buy the interlinigs from 

 

Fratelli Tosetti Tessuti - Firenze

 

They stock support interlining from DHJ -. Chargeurs, both fusible and non fusible.

You can buy any metrege you need, paying different prices, of course.

I do not know if they sell outside Italy, but you can ask.

They have web site

 

Gatto.

When I first joined the forum I got some Mellosan 29NC from Lladhran. It is French, beautiful, white and stiff yet supple.

 

Lladhran sourced it from DHJ.

 

Now, I have no idea who DHJ is, this I would love to know.  I still have 7 metres but one day . . . .
