This finely woven wool and elastane suiting-weight fabric is made from superfine lightly crimped yarns. Desert Sand - Crepe Feel Stretch Suiting has so many elegant redeeming features that you may want to make a wardrobe full of clothes from this one fabric only.

Boasting a classic hue of cool beige tones like its namesake, Desert Sand also has a fine grainy texture, but is in no way scratchy. It is actually soft and malleable with a delicious, reassuring drape quality like you would expect from a wool dress crepe. Excellent stability lengthwise, as well as a versatile retentive stretch across the width, makes for a classic fabric.

Naturally temperature-regulating this predominantly wool fabric is ideal for year round garments which are sure to become your go to pieces.

Desert Sand will make stylish shirt and coat style dresses, safari style dresses with pockets, self-belts and epaulette details (add tortoise shell style buttons for a chic finish), ‘40s and ‘70s style dresses with gathered yokes full sleeves, and gently flared skirts, are perfect styles to make in this super elegant classic. Alternatively how about a super glam fit & flare ‘50s dress? Pleated and gathered, or flared and godet detail skirts are classic choices, as are culottes and full-pleated wide-legged trousers. Add a matching blazer for a perfectly coordinating style.

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!
