    So the two Alacantra sleeves arrived but I'm interested in hearing whether folks think that they fit too tightly or whether they loosen up over time.

    Seems it could benefit from being elasticated in certain areas.

    I'm guessing after the machine has been inside them for a while that they adapt to the overall shape.

    I ordered the peach linen skin with the Microfiber inside.

    All in all, its a nice hand made product. got the customized version with my initials embroidered in.

    However, I was very let down when I received the sleeve. I was expecting a sleeve with more rigidity and padding towards the bottom end. The sleeve is really nothing more than just some fabric stitched together with VERY little padding insider. I'm a bit disappointed considering I spent more than $40 US on this product.

    If you are a looking for a soft cloth sleeve, its a great product.
    If you were looking for something you can trust will provide some protection of your MBA, look elsewhere.

    Anyone want to buy my UKWrappers sleeve? (only catch is that your initials must be T.G.) :D

    Yeah I think the Alacantra is probably a little thicker and thus provides a little more padding than the other materials. But because it's designed to not signifcantly add to the size of the thing inside it doesn't provide a whole lot of padding.
