New Horizons Check - Wool & Silk Worsted is impeccably woven, first-rate fine worsted twill fabric is so light and uplifting, both in colour palette and style.


A fresh cloud white background plays host to the small gingham-like check, boasting a palette of light to dark denim hues which sit alongside chocolate and granite grey. 


New Horizons evokes simpler times and new horizons where anything is possible. A light touch and soft silky hand, thanks to the finest combed worsted yarns with added silk, belies a stable and close weave with a reassuringly sumptuous drape.

Naturally resistant to creases thanks to its fine wool and silk worsted yarns and close, stable weave. This gingham style suiting has a fine twill weave and boasts a silky, super soft (almost cashmere-like) medium, sumptuous drape, perfect for a wide range of sartorial elegance and softer feminine styles too!

Garment Suggestions:

New Horizons is ideal for a vast range of clothing and accessories. The versatile colour palette and classic small check are perfect for the transition from A/W into Spring, whether you choose to interpret this stylish stunner in a classic sports jacket manner or in retro styles. Go classic, vintage, retro or contemporary with the enduring style of New Horizons.

There's so much more to make than suits from fine fabrics of this quality with all those attributes. Stability and drape, temperature-regulating worsted wonderfulness! The Pattern Stash's Cordelia Trousers would be ideal, add deep turn-ups for a swishy weighted drape quality. Cinch in your waist with a matching closely fitted Jemima Waistcoat for bombshell glamour and a forever outfit with class!

Expand the vintage glamour puss vibe and create waist-cinching wiggle dresses with tummy flattering pleats over the hips- alternately add peplums and fantail pleats in the back seam. Look to style icons such as Dita Von Teese for inspiration Charm Patterns have an excellent range of retro-style patterns. We think this versatile check has very '60s vibes making it ideal for styles with a nod to that era.

Think of the simple silhouettes of Mary Quant A-line dresses, cute pinafore dresses with fun pleats and contrasting white Peter Pan collars, patch pockets and chunky metallic zips.

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!
