Millinery Hat Making Supplies | Fascinator Supplies
Millinery supplies are used for making hats, and you'll find millinery wire, the elusive millinery double buckram material and veiling here. Buckram Suppliers can be tough to find, and we provide only the highest quality.
All items on this page need to be ordered in full meter lengths as the system does not accept decimals.
The products on this page can be used for things other than hat making. The double buckram can be shaped; it's very stiff but when it is steamed or made wet it becomes more pliable and can be shaped to form the crown of a hat or almost anything else - when it dries it maintains the shape you created, so let your imagination fly and buy some to play with. Millinery wire (also known as hat wire) can be a bit difficult to work with as it's quite soft, but this also means it can be shaped - unlike spring steel. You can use beading wire or even strong thread to connect intersections of the wire and secure the joins with jewel glue that dries clear. Millinery wire is used to create the shape for straw bonnets. Nylon veiling is drapes beautifully and is not at all puffy like tulle. It to can be used for many other things that veils; tutu panties are made from this using two layers, it's also used for net dress layers in lingerie. If you've never worked with it - buy just a meter, it's light weight, relatively inexpensive and it's 300cm wide! That's 118 inches.
