Midnight Windowpanes Check - Wool Flannel this soft, lightly brushed, finely woven, wool flannel suiting was originally woven in Italy for the same British designer as our SOS Collection, and some top Italian designers too! Ideal for creating smart/casual, cosy and first-rate clothing for a fraction of the designer price tag it was originally intended. With this checked wool flannel, you can be the designer, creating your own bespoke makes.
Midnight Windowpanes is rich and dark multi-tonal blue yarns the colour of midnight skies is woven through with jet black to create a fine overcheck. This clever fabric is so finely woven it can easily be dual-sided.
Midnight Windowpanes was created from a subtle combination of the finest, super-soft wool yarns and woven into this fabulous checked design. Perfect for versatile cross-seasonal garments, thanks to wool's temperature-regulating properties.
Midnight Windowpanes boasts a close, finely woven, stable handle with a super soft drape and feel, with a lightly brushed cosy texture, typical of soft wool flannel.
You'd be a fool to consign this stunning fabric to the 'suiting only' projects pile. This will make both comfortable, warm (but not too warm) garments that can be dressed up or dressed down. A medium-lightweight classic wool check with a light flannel feel.
Take styling inspiration from fictional characters such as The "Peaky Blinders" seriously smart - distinctive characters. Think neat suits, waistcoats and stylish separates you can easily dress up or down. Don't forget the Baker Boy cap too!
For something a little sharper; create classic wide-legged trousers The Pattern Stash - Cordelia Trousers and matching waistcoats Jemima Waistcoat for a confident feminine style. Dress this look down with classic Fairisle jumpers and a pair of brogues. For full-on feminine glamour go the whole hog and create a matching blazer with a velvet collar and pocket flaps, classic cuts never date.

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!
