This tailoring fabric is a lightweight, finely woven fabric that feels smooth to the touch. The colour is lovely rich dar navy blue on the right side but a wonderfully pinstriped feature on the underside (which was determined by the selvedge edge.) I’ve order this for my tailoring course and i received good comments from my student peers on how lovely it is. The fabric is nice to work with and I just might consider ordering more of the same if still available. I highly recommend for tailored garments as well as non tailored items.
Lovely soft pinstripe worsted fabric, I will be making trousers from this, great value.
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!
