Paua Crazy pure cotton fabric


Pure cotton fabric ready to make your own beeswax wraps or use in quilting, sewing or craft projects. 


How to buy 

Our fabric is sold in fat quarters or half metre lengths.  If you purchase multiple fat quarters, they will be individually cut.  If you purchase multiple half metres, they will be a continuous length of fabric.  Note that we usually only list a few metres of each fabric at any time, however we usually have more in stock - feel free to check with us for larger amounts.  


What is a fat quarter?

Fabric is usually sold by the linear metre, so a quarter metre of fabric would usually be 25 cm long by the width of the roll (usually about 112 cm).   A fat quarter is cut at 50 cm long by half the width of the roll - giving you a square-ish piece of fabric that is often a more practical size to use.   

 I'm making beeswax wraps - how much fabric do I need?

Each of our 120 gram blocks of beeswax blend is enough to wax around half a metre of fabric, or two fat quarters.   Keep it simple with a single pattern, or mix and match - your choice!

International Orders and Bee Products

We send our beeswax candles, wraps, DIY blend, and polishes  worldwide and have never had a problem with border restrictions.   Generally finished beeswax products are acceptable for import in most countries.

However, in some countries raw beeswax may not to be allowed in order to protect the health of their local bees.  We get it.  After all, Kev and  Dee are beekeepers, first and foremost.  On that basis, we opt to make our beeswax blocks and pellets available to New Zealand addresses only. 


Some countries may have various border or import charges - please note that you will be responsible for any such charges. 


What about packaging?  Do you use plastic?

We're committed to eliminating plastic wherever we can - the clear bags our kits are packaged in are NOT plastic.  They are genuine cellophane, made from vegetable cellulose and are fully biodegradable and home compostable. 

And we're very happy to announce that the black courier bags we use are also NOT plastic!  They are made from plants and are fully biodegradable, and home compostable.  And, a little oddly, they smell like fresh toast, or maybe popcorn!
