Bemberg Rayon Lining Color Card

Yesterday I received my Bemberg Ambiance rayon lining color card from Vogue Fabrics.  I finally understand what all the fuss is about.  There are so many colors, natural-looking colors to match your fashion fabric.  No more poly linings in bad colors for me!  And of course, it's rayon so it feels soooooo nice.  I only wish it came in 60-inch wide yardage, instead of 45-inch wide.  I think the best price I've been able to find is $6.99 USD/yard at Vogue Fabrics.  They also offer a color matching service but the fabric you're trying to match must be one of the Vogue fabrics.

Bemberg linings:
  • silk-like feel
  • absorbent like cotton (so sweat won't stain your fashion fabric)
  • breathes well
  • anti-static
  • anti-cling
  • dry clean or hand wash
  • 100% cupro rayon
  • eco-friendly
A nice chart comparing various properties of several types of lining can be found here.  As you can see, the Bemberg lining rates highest for everything except "abraison resistance", which I'm guessing means it will snag.
