    Ok, for those of you who know fabrics and suede well... I have a question.

    Here's the description of the fabric:

    GORGEOUS BUTTERCREAM SUEDE FABRIC--MANMADE
    COLOR-DOESKIN/TAN
    This is a lightweight fabric with no backing
    SUPPLE & SO SOFT!
    PERFECT FOR: Women's Skirt or Blazer, a Jumper, Pants etc. Mens Jacket or vest & upholstery, too!


    My question is, is it real suede leather, or microsuede/faux suede? How can you tell? Unfortunately there is not enough time to ask the person selling the fabric. It is 6.30 a yrd.

    Anyhow the stuff will be sold by 11 central time, so if i could get an answer before then, I would be SOOO grateful! There are only 3 yrds left. Thank you all so much!

    Take care and God bless!

    Note the words FABRIC and MANMADE. That's your tip-off. It's fake.

    I don't know if you got that auction or not, but fabric.com is having sale on the Moleskin for $1.96/yd the khaki looks like it could work.
