This Melton wool is created by weaving yarn on both the warp and weft. The fabric is then fulled, one of the processes used in creating melton to give that felt-like finish.
Rich True Blue - Melton Wool is a gorgeous melton, rich true blue-toned fabric with a ravishing Italian pedigree and is a true classic.
This closely woven and felted fabric has a brushed surface that produces a soft handle. Made from 100% wool, our first-rate Rich True Blue is stable both width and lengthways and boasts a soft, drapey, medium to heavyweight handle too.
Meltons are versatile felted fabrics with hardly any fraying to the cut edges and have the same appearance on both sides. The fabric is traditionally used for coats, jackets, waistcoats or skirts like our The Pattern Stash: Jemima Waistcoat & Amelia Skirt and many historical and costume applications as well as capes and stylish wraps.
They also make an ideal base for 2-D needle-felted projects which can be made into bags, cushions and wall hangings, etc Rich True Blue is also ideal for blankets & throws too! Why not personalise yours with a little needle felting or applique, team with your offcuts of tweed fabrics for a wonderful combination.
Create deliciously curated, colour-blocked creations by teaming with Chianti Crush Melton.

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!
