What's the difference between Cotton, Rayon, Raw Yarn and Linen?

It really comes down to the look you are trying to achieve.

  • Cotton, Linen & Raw Yarn:  Matte Finish
  • Rayon: Silky Sheen Finish

Aesthetically, cotton, linen, and raw yarn's matte covering is more appropriate on appliances and utilitarian lighting. Rayon, with its silk-like shine, is ideal for more elegant lamps, radios, phonographs, etc.  With regard to durability, all of our coverings wear very well over time.
