Back by popular demand! When I started making shades over 15 years ago now (sheesh!), this was the fabric I started with. I had no idea it was actually one of the most difficult fabrics to work with until a couple years later when I started experimenting with other fabrics. The outcome is definitely worth the extra care involved with working with this delicate fabric. I always look for good visual texture in the fabrics I pick for my shades, and this fabric is no exception. After all these years, it is still one of my favorite fabrics when lit. It has a lovely glow and a great nubby texture.
Pro Tip: For optimal performance, choose your bulb based on your shade size and not on what your lamp base can handle.
While LEDs emit less heat than the old incandescent bulbs, heat output is not the only thing that affects the well-being of your shade. Lumen output can still have an affect on how quickly a shade yellows with time. A larger shade can handle a higher wattage (or lumen output) bulb, and a smaller shade can handle a lower wattage bulb
Lumen output is how we determine wattage equivalents. A 60W incandescent light bulb that uses 60 watts of power gives off a minimum of 800 lumens of light. A 60W equivalent LED light bulb also gives off a minimum of 800 lumens. This lumen output can still affect a lampshade over time, even if we don't see any immediate damage being done and it never gets warm. I recommend not using more than a 40W equivalent on a 9 in. diameter shade.
