This fabric is not the cozy wool that it claims to be. It's super scratchy, the color is not as rich as the photos. I work with wool all the time, but never have I seen a wool as awful as this, especially at this price point. Other wool that I have ordered from Fabworks has not been like this, and I am very disappointed with the quality of this fabric. I had planned to use this for a skirt, but it would feel like wearing a stiff scratchy blanket. I wouldn't even use it for "soft furnishings" like the description says. This fabric is far from soft. This wool is not worth half the price. Extremely disappointed.
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!
