Royal Shirting


Royal is a loose basket weave, part of the Oxford family of fabrics. It’s made using the same under/over basket weave as any Oxford fabric – the differences in each come from the thickness and weight of the yarns used. Royal fabric has a higher thread count and a lighter, finer weave than traditional Oxford fabric.

Our Royal fabric uses combed 2-ply 100s yarn, spun from extra-long-staple Californian Pima cotton at our mill in Manchester. It’s woven locally to produce a soft yet strong medium weight fabric that

  • Is an ideal choice for smart casual or office shirt or blouse
  • Copes well with the rigours of frequent wear
  • Will look good for longer.

Our 100s Royal fabric is available in three colours – white, blue and pink.  English Fine Cottons Shirting fabrics are provided cut to length on cardboard bolts.We offer two standard sizes, 2m and 2.5m. Alternatively, all materials are available on rolls in larger quantities on request.
