Elevated Elegance - Tropical Suiting is a first-rate wool suiting, woven from the finest quality yarns. This stylish fabric boasts a stable handle and a lightly textured (due to the weave) soft feel. A lightweight breathable suiting fabric, similar to a tropical suit weight, has an amazingly soft drape quality and barely creases! Perfect for warmer climates where you still have to look smartly attired.

A versatile palette of sapphire blue and black is accentuated by a small overcheck that features a silken cross detail woven in lustrous black yarns. This design feature catches the light and produces the elevated elegance of this woven wonder. The combination of subtle colour and weave detail makes for a smart yet interesting style with excellent versatility.

Elevated Elegance - Tropical Suiting is perfect for fashioning smart jackets and waistcoats like our The Pattern Stash - Jemima Waistcoat, which will look great teamed with classic white shirts, tan brogues and jeans, or even our The Pattern Stash - Cordelia Trousers! This clever suiting will of course make the finest suits for stylish gents and ladies. Perfect for shirt-style dresses and shirt-waister styles with a vintage vibe too.

If suit making isn't your forte, fear not! Put this superb fabric to use for less formal, but equally smart outfits, such as shirts, tunics, pinafore dresses and skirts too. The Merchant & Mills 'Shirt Dress' and 'Trapeze Dress' will look stunning in this fabric. There's also a simple drawstring-waist trouser pattern too (The 101 Trouser'), which will work perfectly with Elevated Elegance - Tropical Suiting.

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!
