Ya’ll knew that, right? From table runners to pillow covers to buntings – if I can put it on something, then there’s a safe bet that I’ll try it. There’s just something that touches my farmhouse house lovin’ soul.
But even though I have a deep, unabiding love affair with it – not all burlap is created equal. Whaaaattt??? You didn’t know that? Yeah… each vendor has a little different shade, a different texture, and even some of them have a distinct smell.
I get quite a few questions about where to buy the best burlap – and so I’m finally going to reveal my source: BurlapFabric.com. There’s tons of places to buy burlap, so I’m going to break down why I love this particular source.
The length: I order 60 inch rolls, much longer than most places stock.
The quality: It’s a smooth, even grain (well, relatively speaking – it is burlap!) The fibers are not wonky and pulled like often found.
The color: Burlap can range from a dark cocoa powder toned color to an orangey shade – and that’s just in natural burlap. Personally, I like the caramel toned best, and that’s exactly the color I get from BurlapFabric.com
The price: They have some of the absolute lowest prices I’ve ever found on burlap. You can order a 50 yard roll of 60 inch wide burlap for $99.95. Ummm… yes, please!!! That’s $2 a yard – cheaper than fabric stores even with a coupon!
The customer service: Great service, fast shipping – need I say more?
I love them so much, in fact, they BurlapFabric.com is now a sponsor of The Shabby Creek Cottage – now that’s a match made in heaven 🙂
And speaking of burlap…. I’m sharing a new project over at Graphics Fairy DIY today showing another cute idea to make a bunting… join me over there?
