Introduction:

This soft, lightly brushed, finely woven flannel-like suiting was originally woven for the same British designer as our SOS Collection

Danube Check was created from the finest virgin wool and cashmere blended yarns and woven in tones of industrial greys and deep dark blues intersected by a sapphire blue very like the depths of this fabric's namesake, the River Danube, which cuts a pathway through Budapest.

Colour:

This traditional district check boasts a hazy, slightly obscured look, thanks to its multi-tonal yarns and the superfine woven design. The overall look and style evoke images of smart city gents strolling through those iconic city streets.

Danube Check boasts a close, finely woven, stable handle with a super soft feel and drape, with the lightly brushed texture typical of soft wool flannel.

Properties: 

Danube Check You'd be a fool to consign this stunning fabric to the 'suiting only' projects pile. It will make comfortable, warm (but not too warm!) garments that can be dressed up or dressed down. A lightweight classic wool check with a light flannel feel, it is perfect for gentlemen's work attire, with crease-resistant properties due to its fine weave and wool composition.

Style Suggestions:

Take styling inspiration from fictional characters such as The Peaky Blinders and their seriously smart, distinctive characters. Think neat suits, waistcoats and stylish separates you can easily dress up or down. (And don't forget the Baker Boy cap!).

Ladies fear not! Danube Check is also perfect for classic pencil skirts, neat pinafore dresses and stylish dresses, not to mention cigar pants and much more. Team it up with Fair Isle knits, chunky wool tights, classic black patent boots or the perfect pair of black brogues and you have the most versatile cosy and stylish A/W wardrobe staple. Classic British styling is a hot trend that will never date. For a softer feminine style, team it with wildflower prints in drapey feminine styles.

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!
