Comet Trail is a first-rate ex-designer surplus stock suit weight fabric, quite literally out of this world with a dramatic black base playing host to horizontal slub-dashes of multicolour like a snapshot of outer space! 


Comet Trail deep, mysterious classic black the colour of darkest outer space forms the superfine worsted yarn warp and is woven throughout the weft in a wonderful finely slubbed yarn featuring multicolour pops of red, blue, green, orange and purple. These colourful horizontal slubs give the impression of comet trails in deep space. Classic black with a twist, for those who crave colour!


Comet Trail is woven from a combination of all-wool superfine yarns in a close-staggered twill weave, this produces a stable and hard-wearing, naturally breathable fabric with a soft and elegant drape quality. Suiting-weight wool fabrics are versatile mediumweights similar to cotton drills and twills but are so much more elegant. This fabric will take steam well and pleat crisply to form sharp details. It will also form soft gathers and gentle ruffles- perfect for creating feminine details such as peplums and gored panels.

Garment Suggestions:

Comet Trail will of course create the snazziest suits, but consider all the wonderful stand-alone pieces you can create from it too!

Comet Trail is perfect for fashioning smart jackets and waistcoats which will look great teamed with classic white shirts, tan brogues and jeans. This clever suiting will of course make the finest suits for stylish gents and ladies. Wide-leg trousers, like The Pattern Stash - Cordelia Trousers, will create an elegant timeless style akin to Katherine Hepburn's iconic style, adding deep turn-ups for a swishy drape that will make you walk with style. Team with The Pattern Stash - Jemima Waistcoat for a simple but striking suit combo! The use of interlining is recommended for the waistcoat to add structure.

If suit-making isn't your forte, fear not! Put this superb fabric to use for less formal, but equally smart outfits, such as shirt dresses, tunics, pinafore dresses and skirts too. Perfect for shirt-style dresses and shirt-waister styles with a vintage vibe 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 such as The 101 Trouser.
