help needed on upholstery fabric for sofa

Barb Wise
last month

I have been searching out fabric for redoing my sofa and loveseat for several months. I have learned a lot. I only want fabric with a W (water cleanable, not solvent). I prefer 100% polyester to avoid pilling problems. My upholsterer says I need fabric that is railroaded, not up the roll. I am finding that most upholstery fabrics are up the roll. I even called one company for advice. They did not recommend turning the fabric even though it would not change the look. They said it would not wear the same. Looking for a light taupe or grayish tan that is railroaded. Not finding it after months of searching. We have one fabric that we like that is railroaded, but it is not soft. Very rough texture. I need help!
