Musical instruments are beautiful. The fabric used to line an instrument case should protect and show off the beauty of your chosen instrument.


Which Fabrics are Good for Instrument Case Lining?

One of the best fabrics for lining musical instrument cases is baize – a high wool or pure wool content fabric. More often than not most people associate baize as a covering for pool, snooker or billiards tables or covering playing card tables.

The truth is baize is brilliant for those uses, but it’s also particularly good for lining boxes and cases, that will contain delicate or precious things.

Many will think of velvet as a lining material for musical instrument cases, but baize – especially those made from pure merino wool – offers a hardwearing and equally gentle fabric for the job.

Naturally Scratch Free

Pure merino wool baize fabrics are the most suitable for lining or repairing instrument cases. Thanks to the soft merino wool, it doesn’t scratch highly polished materials, be they wood, metal or plastic.

Our 100% Merino Wool range of fabrics have a natural sheen to them that reflects and radiates the light. The fabrics in this range are available in a wide variety of rich and extravagant colours. So you’ll be sure to find a colour that fits your or your client’s style.

Vivid Hues Baizes – Subtle and Striking

The Vivid Hues range of baizes are also made from pure merino wool, but have a melton finish. This means that they have a matt look and don’t reflect the light. The fabrics in this range are slightly thinner so will need slightly more cushioning overall, but will be easier to work with. Vivid Hues range is named after the visual weight of the colours in the range.
