Urban Navy Twill - Wool Blend Serge is a fabulous designer deadstock fabric. Originally used to create super stylish apparel. Wool blended gaberdine and serge fabrics are perennial favourites for creating smart, stylish and hard-wearing apparel. Read on for more qualities, hints and styling tips on how to create your own bespoke classics.


Urban Navy Twill is just as its name suggests, a dark classic navy tone.  This is self-assured understated classic elegance. Perfect for those who find black a little harsh. 


Urban Navy Twill is meticulously woven from a high thread count of lustrous Italian wool yarns, which are combed and tightly twisted to produce a lustrous sheen and dense double cloth-like construction. The close twill woven construction thus produces a medium/heavyweight fabric that is stable has excellent bias ease and has a reassuring drape quality.  Serge is more resistant to water and soil. The fabrics' double cloth construction produces a springy resilient hand less prone to creases and very warm. A touch of polyester adds extra resilience.

Garment Suggestions:

Urban Navy Twill is perfect for creating classic outerwear, and hard-wearing pieces for your bespoke wardrobe. A plethora of coat and jacket styles from tailored blazers to trench coats and cape-coat styles. Why not jump on board the boiler suit worker clothing/utility trend and create a hard-wearing, stylish and warm piece of clothing you can dress up or dress down? Merchant and Mills - The Thelma boiler suit is a perfect style as are overshirts, shackets, bomber jackets etc. The Ilford Jacket - Friday Pattern Co and the Sienna Maker Jacket - Closet Core Patterns are also excellent similar styles. we love The Avid Seamstress - The Blazer for a great introduction to soft tailoring.

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!
