All Rubyjam Fabric is sold in HALF METRE (50cm) increments. If you order 3 units, you will receive 1.5M of fabric cut in one continuous length. One metre is just over 39 inches and is therefore about 10% bigger than one yard. My fabric is sold in half metre (50cm) increments which is just under 20 inches and is therefore bigger than a half yard. Most of my fabric is 150cm wide, or approximately 60 inches. My super special custom knit fabric is about 170cm wide or just under 67 inches. My new range of extra wide solid/plain cotton lycra colours are about 185cm or just over 72 inches. I hope this helps to clear up the mystery of the metric system :)
I offer generous flat rate shipping for any size order delivered to any Australian address for just A$9.95. For my international customers, I have added the costs for international postage to the shop cart. Any overcharges will be refunded. If you would prefer to obtain an exact cost for international postage prior to purchasing, please send a convo along with the fabric details and quantities. Please state if you wish to include options such as tracking, signature on delivery, insurance or express delivery.
Fabric samples are available on request. There is no charge for samples sent to any Australian address. Full swatch cards containing samples of all solid cotton lycra colours are available for a small fee.
As standard, I offer flat rate shipping $9.95 to any Australian address but this does not include Express Post. If you require your order quickly, please select "Express Post" option during check out. Your shipping total will be $9.95 + $5.00 = $14.95 If your order is large (more than 5M) and requires a 5kg Express Post satchel, I will cover the additional postage. Rush orders should be received before 12pm AEST to ensure there is adequate time for me to cut, pack and post your awesome fabric. Orders are sent from Terrey Hills NSW 2084 - Australia Post only guarantees next day delivery if the destination post code falls within the Express Post network. Please refer to the Aust Post website for details or send a convo to discuss. :)
Any fabric listed as Pre-Order can have a lead time of up to 6-8 weeks or as outlined in the listing description. Occasionally these dates can change but I will notify you of any delays or changes to the production or delivery schedule. Once the pre-order fabric arrives, all pre-orders will be cut/packed/posted and if there is any fabric remaining, it will be listed at the retail price (up to A$5 more per metre). If you wish to order in stock fabric as well, please order these items separately otherwise I will keep your entire order on hold until the pre-order stock arrives.
Fabric listed as having a 2 way stretch means the fabric stretches on the crossgrain and also recovers, hence "two" part - stretch and recover. Fabric listed as having a 4 way stretch means the fabric stretches and recovers both on the cross and lengthwise grains. My 95/5 cotton/lycra apparel fabric and my poly/lycra swim fabric all have a good four-way stretch. This means the fabric is suitable for apparel as it will stretch multi-directionally to provide a comfortable fit to the wearer's body shape. This is very important for activewear, swimwear, leisurewear, etc.
If you need to cancel your order, please contact me immediately as orders are prepared almost as soon as the payment confirmation is received. My target is to have your order cut and packed for shipping within two hours to ensure it is out the door and on the way to you as quickly as possible. Yes, I'm really that fast :) I am happy to cancel your order provided the fabric has not been cut. Once your order has been cut, there will be a 25% restocking fee charged (25% x order total) to cover my time, wasted packaging materials and potential loss I may incur if failing to resell your order to another customer.
