Drills and twills of medium weight are a basic staple of any sewing room or everyday wardrobe.
Olive/khaki green tones have gained popularity on the back of military chic fashions and sit perfectly with other natural green and brown hues. Combine all these attributes with a 50/50 combination of wool and cotton and you have the perfect fabric for a multitude of uses.
Olive Grove - Wool & Cotton Twill Suiting is stable (meaning easy to sew) and also has a soft drape quality. The wool content provides temperature-regulating qualities and the cotton provides a soft hand. Twills have diagonal lines characteristic to the weave and are hard-wearing and closely woven. So many wardrobe staples are created in fabrics that are twills.
This may be a suiting weight fabric but our mantra is "suiting is not just for suits"

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!
