Question about Ultrasuede Little Swift
I'd be happy to have a fellow TB'er approach me, so we could have a little Bihn-fest right there in the airport or wherever. ;-)
Meanwhile, I'm counting down the days until my Kiwi Little Swift arrives (due Thursday!). Based on peregrina's wonderful photos of her Hemp one, and indigoswift's review that is linked on the Bihn blog, I'm already thinking of ordering a second LS in a darker color to use in the fall and winter. I'm trying to decide between Cork and the cocoa Ultrasuede, which looks lovely. But I'm wondering about the Ultrasuede's heft, for lack of a better word. How strong a fabric is it?
I'm also wondering how difficult it is to keep clean. Can you spot clean it? I have a boisterous 20-month-old Newfoundland puppy (Newfies are giants who act puppy-ish a long time), and that means I'll be contending not only with long black dog hair, but also with slobber. Darcy, perhaps you could speak to whether the Ultrasuede is washable or not. And I'd love to hear from anyone who has ordered an Ultrasuede LS, or who owns any other items in Ultrasuede, to share their experiences with the fabric.
Thanks so much!
