Rated 5 out of 5 by Chickey The best lining for the price
I use Bemberg Ambiance for nearly every garment that calls for slippery lining. It's cheaper than silk, feels cool on the skin, and breathes extremely well. It works great for a variety of lining applications and can be underlined for additional warmth.
For care, I pre-wash in cold water on gentle cycle, remove it immediately, and tumble-dry low. (If this seems strange, note that I always pre-wash fabric harder than I intend to launder my final garments!) Bemberg likes a medium-hot iron and also takes well to spray fabric stabilizer, as it's very slippery and difficult to cut accurately. I use silk pins when pinning and a new sharp Microtex 90/14 needle for sewing it.
For the price, you really can't beat the versatility and feel of Bemberg. Yes, silk is more luxurious but it's so expensive. Bemberg is a workhorse of a lining at a workhorse price!
