This classic gun club check, all wool worsted is a slightly heavier weight than standard suiting weight worsteds, making it ideal for sports jackets and traditional smart country attire. But Winter Landscape - Worsted Alsport (Gun Club Check) has a traditional appeal which can be easily incorporated into quirky Brit style designs that are just as popular now as they were when fabrics like this were first manufactured. 

Winter Landscape was woven by a British manufacturer who hold Royal warrants to this day and have associations with the British Royal Family since The Prince of Wales gave his name to that eponymous monochrome district check.

Designer labels don't always guarantee quality, but the finely woven selvedge ribbon on this impeccable wool 'jacketing' is the real deal! (See the last photo for a closeup). The expertly woven twill and gun club checked design boasts a palette of cool blue grey colours like a winter landscape of tall snow topped, misty mountains and rocky rivers with cool blue rushing torrents.

Winter Landscape boasts a medium-light weight, often referred to as jacketing weight. This all wool worsted is stable, closely woven and has a lovely soft yet reassuringly warm drape quality.

Winter Landscape will of course make fabulous winter suits, jackets trousers and skirts but think outside the box and create vintage style pinafore dresses with darted empire waistlines and feminine wiggle skirts ~ team with pretty white peter pan collar blouses for a demure look or closely fitted fine sweaters for a super stylish Mad Men inspired look.

If something a little more edgy is more your style then play around with bias cutting for a 'Viv Westwood' look. This impeccably woven classic may look traditional but classics are just that for a reason.

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!
