Fabric Sizing

Fabric Sizing - How we Size your Fabric at Outback Yarns, Everything You Will Hopefully Need to Know!

Here at Outback Yarns, we want to clearly let you know how we size cut the fabrics from the bolt before we send it to you in the post.

There are 3 options when it comes to fabric sizing:

  • Per Quarter metre (25cm). Fabric can be purchased in quarter metre units (25cm or approx 10"). For example, if you wished to order 1 ½ metres of fabric you would enter ‘6’ as the quantity (6 x 1/4m = 1 ½ metres). Fabric width is the width of the bolt which is between 42”-44” / 106cm-112cm. Fabric will be sent as a continuous piece unless otherwise specified.


  • Fat Quarters – approximately  50cm x 56cm  / 20” x 22”. Fat Quarters are a 50cm length which is times the width of the bolt which is split halfway along the width to give 21"-22” (approximately 50cm to 56cm).


  • Panel - A panel of fabric which will be the size of the design (typically the width of the bolt [42”-44” / 106cm-112cm] x the height of the design.
