It's woven with a silky black sateen background, which showcases the matte sapphire paisley motifs perfectly. The addition of a fine over trellis (in black) adds textural interest. The opposite effect is visible on the reverse.
Boasting a light/medium weight handle that feels soft and slightly textured, Perfect Paisley Jacquard has a wonderful drape that's accentuated by the expensive sheen.

I bought some of the Perfectly Paisley Jacquard in Sapphire to make a Maison Fauve blouse. Beautiful colour, deep blue, almost black, with a slight shimmer from the pattern. I haven’t made it up yet but it feels nice to handle.
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!
