I recently ordered two pieces of fabric from Fabworks. Unfortunately, the first parcel got lost in transit, but Fabworks was amazing in their response—they quickly replied to my emails and promptly reshipped the orders without any fuss. I'm loving the fabrics I purchased, and the patterned linings they included as a gift were a delightful surprise. The quality of both fabrics is excellent, especially for their reasonable prices.
This fabric is such a lovely woollen fabric. It is smooth and not itchy the way woollen fabric can be.
This fabric is perfect for a skirt or jacket in Spring time or Autumn. The colours are really beautiful.
This feels so luxurious. Perfect for the 60's inspired shift dress I'm making. The fine detail of the pattern is subtle shades of navy and dark blue. Really love it.
As with everything I’ve bought from Fabworks, this luxurious fabric has surpassed my expectations. I love the subtle basketweave herringbone weave and deepest navy/indigo blue. Absolutely love it
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!
