Considerable Wool - Coating is a truly hard-wearing and hardworking wool blend fabric. Its 70% wool content really is considerable wool - the added fibres providing extra strength and durability. This closely woven small herringbone weave is felted to give it a dense and softly brushed quality and the feel of a duffle type coating fabric.
Using yarns with an earthy and natural palette, the colour of ancient tree bark, this fabric has dusty ash undertones. Considerable Wool is supremely warm and will mix and match perfectly with rough spun wool tweeds and other country clothing fabrics.
Boasting a super sturdy and stable handle, this wool-blend coating has a traditional felted wool feel and a heavy drape quality. Hard-wearing field coats and jackets made up in Considerable Wool will team up perfectly with country tweeds. Traditional duffel coats and overcoats are of course the perfect garment to make from this sturdy fabric. Don't forget to add horn-type toggles or leather type buttons for a traditional and authentic finish.
This heavy fabric is ideal for donkey jacket styles with leather yokes. Team your garments up with weathered tan leather for a superb combination.
Historical costume makers and reenactors; this natural-toned fabric is perfect for a profusion of hard-wearing costumes!
If clothes making isn't your forte, use Considerable Wool for upholstery and soft furnishing projects such as seat pads, boxed cushions and footstools. You could also appliqué with rustic country tweeds and leathers for a very rural/gentlemen's club vibe!
Note that this fabric is not a melton however it does have many properties that you would find in a good melton fabric, only with a coarser finish.

Why choose wool fabric? Benefits of sewing with Wool! 🐑
We love wonderful wool! Why? Because it looks beautiful, well yes but did you know wool has a series of superpowers that make it the most incredible natural fibre, suitable for more garment suggestions and sewing inspiration than possibly any other?
Wool has a unique naturally crimped 3D structure which attributes to some brilliant properties & makes it a great fabric to wear throughout all the seasons.
Naturally Breathable: This amazing 3D crimped structure promotes air circulation allowing air to pass through the fabric, allowing for circulation and ventilation for your skin to breathe, keeping you cool.
Shower Resistant: Sheep naturally produce a waxy substance called lanolin. As sheep live outdoors, this naturally occurring wax helps to protect sheep from the elements, naturally shedding water & keeping them dry. This same property is retained within the wool fibres when spun into yarn.
Moisture Absorbing: The moisture-retentive superpowers of wool! It’s hydrophilic core gives wool the ability to wick away moisture keeping you dry and comfortable – this possibly one of our favourite properties because you can stay fresh when wearing wool, from autumn right through to spring!
