Is ColorFabb the best PLA?

I guess it also depends on shipping costs i don't know about faberdashery but colorfabb ships for free if you buy 4 spools or more (for europe).

And for a coil of 85 meters (about 748g or 542cc) from faberdashery you pay 29.75 pounds without shipping (36.18€)

Same amount for colorfabb is 36.30€ so yes 0.12€ more :mrgreen:


First of all: As I wrote, my calculation is without shipping costs.

Second point: It is new that Colorfabb ships for free from 4 spools or more. I ordered last month and at this point I had to pay € 10.- for shipping. Now it is only € 7.95 - 4.95 or for free if you order 4 spools or more - which is an great development

Third point: Don't know which color you choose at faberdashery but it is not a standard color. Your price of 29.75 pound fits to the color 'desert tan' as an example. In this case it would be more intelligent to buy 100m (880 gram) for 28.- pounds ;)

But you are right, the shipping costs at faberdashery are too expensive particularly now that Colorfabb ships much cheaper.

By the way the standard colors are even cheaper at faberdashery: standard black, 100m = 880gr: 24.- pounds = € 29,14 :p

for me in the UK

4 coils (3520g) of white from faberdashey plus shipping £108

4 spools (3000g) of white colorfabbs free shipping € 145


addition: £108 = € 131,13


faberdashery: 3.73 Cent/gram

colorfabb: 4.83 Cent/gram


I love to split hairs ;):p
