Why are there three options for postage at checkout?
At checkout there are three options for shipping to enable people to choose an option that is most suited to their situation.
- Standard Postage (Aramex) is not available for PO Box, Parcel Locker or Post Office shipping addresses. If you select this option and have your shipping address as an excluded option, this may delay your order being shipped. You will be contacted and asked to provide an alternate shipping address, or pay additional postage.
- Orders can however be shipped to a PO Box Plus, this is an upgraded service from a Standard PO Box and allows you to receive shipments from all couriers. A 'PO Box Plus' address will be Suite XXX and a street address. Unfortunately, Australia Post does not allow other couriers to deliver to Standard PO Box addresses.
- Standard Postage - Australia Post is available for customers who wish to ship to a PO Box, Parcel Locker or Post Office shipping address (or if they simply prefer this carrier).
- EXPRESS Postage - Australia Post is available for customers who need their items as soon as possible.
Why can I not choose Standard Aramex Postage and ship it to a PO Box, Parcel Locker or Post Office ?
Standard flat rate postage is via Aramex or CouriersPlease. These providers have cheaper rates then Australia Post. Unfortunately, they cannot deliver to a Standard PO Box, Parcel Locker or Post Office.
What Covid safety procedures do you have in place?
At Melco, your safety and well-being is important. Extra hygiene practices include wiping down benches between orders, wearing face-masks and using hand sanitizer regularly. As a small business your fabric is not in contact with multiple people. All staff members have had their Covid vaccinations.
If I am not happy with my purchase can I return it?
If for any reason, you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, you may return it for up to 30 days from the original purchase date for a refund. In order to do so, the item(s) must be in new, unworn/unwashed/uncut condition. In the case of a change of mind return, you are responsible for return postage charges. If you are unsure on fabric colours ect please order some free fabric samples prior to purchase. But I can assure you, you will love Melco Fabrics!
Are the colours accurate on your website?
All care is taken to represent fabric in the most accurate way possible. However, every screen will display colours a little differently, so please note this when ordering fabric. Returns for this reason will incur postage charges.

Just as soft and gorgeous as the Lavender waffle and waiting to be made up into pyjamas for my granddaughters. Photos to follow.
Lovely stretch, fabulous colour just great for our baby granddaughter.
I just adore the waffle material plus the French Terry. There awesome to sew with. Can't wait to get my New order .
I just got the Aus Post shipping notification for my first order and I am so excited to get my hands on this fabric…. Everything I see online and on Facebook tells me this is going to be top quality cotton knit - something we have been starved of in the big name fabric stores for too long!
But even before my fabric arrives I had to jump on and say how very impressed I have been with Melco’s customer service. I can’t express enough how patient and helpful Mel was as we worked through an issue with my original order then accommodating a series of changes by me, even noticing that I hadn’t ordered a coordinating fabric as it was out of stock on the website but there was a piece of roll end available and checking if I wanted some. Very thorough, thoughtful, knowledgeable, and helpful. I wish Mel and Melco all the very best and hope they are well supported - we need businesses like this one!
Lovely fabric and great to work with
Lovely colour, gorgeous soft fabric!
I haven't started sewing with it yet but the colour's interesting & the fabric has washed well, without the colour running.
Such a beautiful and bright colour. Perfect to sew with and very soft.
Beautiful fabric and amazing customer service- quick shipping and the personal note I said was a beautiful touch!
Very happy with this rib fabric. Exact match to the French Terry in garnet.
Such brilliant fabric! I’m in need of a lightweight mock neck top as the seasons change, and everywhere I’ve looked, ribbed knits are either made of polyester, ridiculously expensive, too heavy or available in like 3 weird colours. I bought this rib knit in both garnet and black, and as soon as I opened the package I was so impressed the the quality and perfect gsm (there was even a handwritten note in the package, how sweet!). I’ve just washed it and it hasn’t bled colour. Needless to say, Im so excited to sew with it and have some new staple garments!!
On a side note, the shopping experience with Melco Fabrics was so friendly, efficient and helpful, I’ve no doubt I’ll be back again! :)
The colour is amazing, I love it and cannot wait to sew it up!
Gorgeous colour and beautiful fabric to work with!
Lovely soft material - makes the best tank singlets! :D
This is a beautiful colour blue with such a lovely feel to it! Absolutely will be back to buy more from the Melco knit range :)
