Anyone seen any? i am looking for something that is a bit more realistic that the so called shearing i have seen that turns out to be just fleece.

What are you wanting it for? If it's some sort of garment the only thing that springs to my mind is Sherpa fleece.

It is for a sleeveless jacket type thing and i was hoping to get some sort of suedey type fabric with a fleece backing.

Well Abakhan always used to have a good selection of nice faux shearling in their remnant bins but I've only been in the Manchester shop once in the last 6 months (   :'( :'( :'( ) so I couldn't tell you what's available alas. I guess we aren't so keen on in person fabric shopping trips at the moment although we love the experience. Sigh!

@Gernella @wrenkins That is the sort of thing i am thinking of and i did see this on eBay but not sure about the colour. A small sample is £2 (but £2.50 on their own website) which, if i am honest is a bit steep for a sample.

£2.50 for a sample?!?!?!? You could get a fat quarter for that!  :o

It's not really exactly the same thing but for anyone who wants the suede but without the fluffy stuff the Textile Centre has some very nice faux suede. I have some of the silvery grey and have just ordered some black - planning to use it for that new Vogue moto jacket pattern. They have a 20% sale at the mo. I'll be all zips and 'leather' - Hell's Grannies!
