Lavender Sky - Wool Melton
Price is per HALF metre. 1 unit = 0.5metres. For 1.5metres, add 3 units.
All cut length orders are sent as one continuous length.
This warming melton wool fabric is created by closely weaving 100% wool yarn on both the warp and weft. The fabric is then fulled, just one of the processes used in creating Melton to give that dense felt-like finish.
Lavender Sky - Wool Melton is a superb cool lilac hue- evoking thoughts of misty lilac mornings and pastel-hued sunsets. The perfect winter alternative to the usual camel beige or cream for overcoats.
This closely woven and felted fabric has a lightly brushed surface that produces a hard-wearing finish. The underlying twill weave can be seen with close scrutiny but is obscured by the lightly napped, felted finish. Made from 100% Wool, our first-rate Lavender Sky is stable both width and lengthways and boasts a soft, drapey, medium/heavyweight handle too.
Meltons are versatile felted fabrics with minimal fraying to the cut edges and have the same appearance on both sides. The fabric is traditionally used for coats, jackets, waistcoats and many historical and costume applications as well as capes and stylish wraps.
Meltons also make an ideal base for 2-D needle-felted projects, which can be made into bags, cushions, wall hangings, etc. Lavender Sky is also ideal for blankets & throws too! Why not personalise yours with a little needle felting or applique - team with your offcuts of Yorkshire Tweed fabrics for a wonderful combination.

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!
