FAQ - JENNY PENNYWOOD

I see that you have a 3 yard minimum. Can I order less than 3 yards?

Yes, we can cut less than 3 yards if we have the fabric in stock in the studio. If we do have it in stock we will let you know and then you can place the order through the website. If we do not have it in stock, we are not able to do less than 3 yards.

Can I choose different patterns within the 3 yard minimum? 

If we have what you want in stock, then yes you can order less than 3 yards of what ever you would like. Email to check in about it.

How is the fabric shipped? 

If you order 3 - 5 yards, it will come in one consecutive piece, folded and shipped in a box. If you order more than that, we will ship it on the roll. If you would like your 3 - 5 yard piece on the roll, let us know and we will ship it that way to you. 

Why are my napkins and tea towels slightly different sizes?

This isn't a a question I get asked a lot but here is the scoop -- we are very serious about no waste over here. So the size is determined by the width of the fabric. I just tell my cutting room to cut 6 napkins per yard and 4 tea towels per yard. Over the years I have used similar but different base fabrics which happen to be different widths. That all said, we don't worry too much about these size inconsistencies because we are so committed no waste. If we did need to make sure that everything was always the exact same size, then there would be a lot of waste. Also, during the wash/soften/garment dye process, shrinkage isn't always exact - things change from bolt to bolt.

Our goal in 2020 is to not have any more product on the shelf that is made out of the previous linen/rayon. We want everything on the linen/cotton SO the linen/cotton napkins measure approximately 15 x 15" and tea towels measure 15 x 24". Linen/cotton fabric is about 52" wide and with the selvage and shrinkage, this sizing is where we land. 

We are flexible over at Jenny Pennywood and we just "roll with it". 

We totally understand though if that isn't your style so please let us know if you need to make a return.

I ordered a napkin last year and the screen print color or over-dye color is a little different. Why?

So many things can create inconsistencies. Is it hot outside or is it cold? Did something dry really fast or did it take a while to dry because it was raining outside? Who knows! But what we do over here at Jenny Pennywood is try and roll with it. We are cool with different shades and colors and ways things are printed and the different over-dye colors. We choose to embrace all of that stuff.

What does over-dye mean? 

It means to dye over with another color. I print my pattern on a fabric that is a natural white color. If you wanted the background color to be different, then you would take that natural fabric and dye it.
