Introduction: 

Evening Mist - Marled Melton is an all-wool melton fabric just like its predecessor from the Valley Mist collection, one of our very special exclusive Heart of Huddersfield wools.

Colour:

The sand and grey colours in Evening Mist add a warming effect, this misty and rained-toned melton is inspired by the changing landscape of the Holme Valley and its surroundings, the shades and tones changing like the weather.

This 100% wool is created by weaving a natural and grey marled yarn on the warp and weft. The fabric is then filled, one of the processes used in creating meltons to give that felt-like finish. Evening Mist feels slightly denser, more closely felted than its predecessor Each marled melton is then piece-dyed to its unique colour, emphasising the darker underlying grey fibres to create a multi-tonal marled effect, hence the name: Marled Melton.

Properties:

This closely woven, felted and brushed 100% wool has a versatile medium/heavyweight and a traditional wool feel that is lightly brushed with a cosy finish. Boasting a stable handle that drapes reassuringly, Evening Mist is perfect for keeping the elements out. and being a wool fabric, it will do as you tell it. Woollen fabrics of this kind are easy to sew and will stand the test of time.

Excellent. Beautiful UK woollen fabric.

It's substantial and very stable dimensionally. I'm using it to renovate a much loved but exhausted cushion that has an old canvas work panel in it, designed by Kaffe Fassett. The design in pinks and other pastel colours tones perfectly with the soft and subtle grey of this fabric.
It is as it was described on line and the package arrived very promptly. I'm very pleased!

Fab marled grey

Doesn't look as dark (possibly) in real life as photos. Absolutely not a problem - makes it better!
Nice solid feel to sew with.
