Coir Fibre - Ginger
This filling is also known as coir or coconut fibre. and is an economical traditional stuffing or filling made from the husk of the coconut.
The long curling fibres have a good springy resilience and durability.
It is mainly used as a 'first stuffing'
Available in 1kilo packs, 4kilo packs, and 10kilo Trade Sacks
The amount of filling used in a piece of furniture depends on a lot of different factors and an upholsterer will have a large sack beside the workbench and just take what he/she needs using experience to get the effect required.
But as a rough guide for a first stuffing you would need approx.0.5 kilo for a drop-in Dining Seat: 1-1.5kilos for a Stuff-over Dining Seat. and 2-4kilos for an Armchair Seat
Fillings should be held in place with Lightweight Hessian or Scrim
Cotton/Wool Felt or Skin Wadding is used a barrier to stop the fibre working its way to the top Fabric.
