This fabulous vintage children's cotton shows the Wombles in all their glory! This is original Wombles fabric from the 1970's series and shows Elisabeth Beresford's Wombles - Uncle Bulgaria, Orinoco, Madame Cholet, they are all here!
This is an open weave fabric, 100% cotton with bright colours and a white background. I have spotted a couple of pulled threads but otherwise this 1970's Wombling fabric is in excellent condition. The fabric is strong, colours are even and there is no obvious fade. This fabric has a tendancy to fray when cut because of the nature of the weave - hem all the edges! It's reclaimed so there are no selvedges, it looks like a Wardle print but I can't find any reference to it so I'm not sure.
The Wombles measure about 20cm in height. The cotton measures 85cm across and I just have one piece remaining which is 50cm long.
