Easy to work with. And allows flexibility in choice of projects as a result.
Following my initial review when I received the fabric I have subsequently made it up into a jacket and pencil skirt. I am very pleased with the results. The fabric is a pleasure to use. For anyone thinking of making a shacket for chilly spring days this would be a great wool fabric choice. I have ordered a further length to make matching trousers. Beautiful fabric! Many thanks Fabworks!
This is a beautiful fabric. It ticks all the boxes;
wool ✅ texture ✅ warmth ✅ stability ✅ colour ✅🤩
I will make a spring jacket. A “slow sew” over gloomy winter days, ready to bloom along with bulbs and blossom. 💐🌸🌺
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!
