This versatile grey/ beige fine worsted wool was expertly woven in Italy for a renowned British designer. Wood Pigeon - Dimple Wool is a subtle combination of soft grey and beige tones, like the plumage of its namesake. This lightweight woollen is woven using fine worsted yarn of two differing thicknesses and when held to the light you can see its small checked weave, which when woven at different tensions creates the small waffle-like uniform dimples throughout.

Wood Pigeon has a soft feel and excellent stability, with a little ease across the the width (due to the dimpled effect) and a soft drape quality that will gather and drape beautifully. This first rate designer fabric has similar qualities to seersucker and won't crease as easily as a smooth flat weave worsted, and is therefore perfect for all semi structured styles. However, don't think that suiting is just for suits! Utilise the soft drape quality of this gorgeous Italian woven wool for feminine dresses and less formal attire. This richly toned woollen waffle is from a collection of identical fabrics which are truly complimentary, and look spectacular when used collectively, either for colour-blocking or for smart separates that coordinate together.

Use Wood Pigeon to create stylish shirtdresses, classic long length shirt styles, or full skirted retro styles. Put this superb fabric to use for less formal but equally smart outfits such as 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, that will work perfectly with this designer worsted. There are many other patterns available suitable to use with this fabric, think clean simple lines and unfussy cuts!

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!
