This superfine, flat weave, checked worsted suiting fabric was woven in Italy by master weavers and originally made for a top British designer. Now you can create your own bespoke makes.
In The Shadows Check is woven from a subtle melange of navy, black and spruce green, fine worsted (combed) yarns, with a little added polyester for everyday wear-ability. The small checked design at first glance appears to only feature navy and black, but look closely and you will see superfine outlines of spruce green hiding in the shadows of the navy and black.
This lightweight suiting fabric is stable and boasts a close weave and soft drape quality that is perfect for a multitude of garments that don't have to be suits.
Why should only tailors get to use beautiful suitings? In The Shadows Check is perfect for ladies drapey dress designs and is also stable enough for shirts and shirt dresses. Of course, you can't beat a classic suit can you?
If suit making isn't your forte, fear not! Put this superb fabric to use for less formal, but equally smart outfits, such as shirts, 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', which will work perfectly with In The Shadows Check.
There are many other patterns available suitable to use with In The Shadows Check, 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!
