Crin is an extremely versatile fabric that can be used for millinery, craft and haberdashery as well as fashion and dressmaking. At Parkin Fabrics we stock it in over 20 fashion colours and 3 widths – 4cm, 8cm and 15cm. Traditionally made from horsehair it is now more commonly found made out of polyester.
It can be used as a supporting fabric in dressmaking and is commonly used to help give body to hemlines. Crin is also a popular fabric used for making petticoats and adding shape to fine silk dresses and lingerie. In millinery crin can be used on its own as a trimming and makes a stylish and elegant addition to any fascinator or hat project.
As well as these applications it can also be used in soft furnishings, jewellery making, card craft and gift wrapping.
