Evening Breeze - Fresco Suiting at first glance you may think this is just another navy suit fabric but this impeccably woven wonder has numerous attributes to be admired and has a self-assured air that speaks for itself.
Evening Breeze is a shade of deepest darkest navy, nearly inky black in colour, perfect smart suiting that would be an asset to your wardrobe in any guise.
Evening Breeze was woven by an Italian manufacturer of esteemed renown. This lightweight but certainly not flimsy, fabric could be called a tropical or summer weight suiting as fresco in Italian literally means fresh and gives a clue to this fabulous fabric's attributes. High-twist fine yarns create a fabric that is crisp and hard-wearing but not opaque. The fabric is airy and breathable and when held to the light is slightly translucent, tailored garments will need breathable lining.
Boasting a truly elegant drape quality, akin to a fine wool dress crepe this finely woven fabric is perfect for sophisticated gents and lady’s attire suitable for perpetual wear-ability with crease-resistant properties thanks to its complex light and airy weave and 100% wool composition, it will naturally acclimatise to the wearer!
If suit-making isn't your style, fear not! Put this superb fabric to use for less formal, but equally smart outfits, such as shirts, tunics, pinafore dresses, drapey layers like tunics and over shirts/dresses and skirts too. Take a look at Sew Different's Layer Up collection for a range of versatile pieces.
There are many other patterns suitable for this versatile cross-seasonal fabric from clean simple lines and un-fussy cuts to more feminine gathered and drapey styles. The Maker's Atelier and The Assembly Line have a plethora of patterns that would work brilliantly.

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!
