Rated 1 out of 5 by Laika Fabric fades terribly in sunny INDOOR location
This fabric was purchased to make curtains and it faded terribly over a period of a few months when displayed indoors.
I contacted Fabric.com and Waverly and both said that this was expected, the fabric is not fade-resistant, and would not replace or refund my purchase.
Take a look at the photos and see if that amount of fading is acceptable to you. It's not like I had it outside!
SO disappointed in Waverly and Fabric.com. I will never order from here again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Iloveprettythings Fab for a duvet cover or curtains
This fabric is really beautiful. The colors on my computer are true to most of the actual colors of the fabric except for the pink and red which are brighter but very nice. I got a sample before ordering to check the colors and see if it was washable because with pets, everything in my house has to be washable. Though it says dry clean, it washed well but needed light ironing. The colors did not fade, the shrinkage was a little less than 2%, and there was just slight fraying. It has a soft hand for a non-brushed twill and is a good weight for a duvet cover or curtains. It could probably be used for a chair that won't get a lot of use but fabric.com doesn't give the rubbings number. I used it for a duvet cover and shams and am very happy with them.
