This classic, darkest navy, finely woven suiting fabric is woven in a clever blend of virgin wool worsted and polyester yarns. The high twist (in the lustrous worsted yarns) has produced a tightly woven & stable suiting fabric with a fine texture akin to a small scale basket/hopsack weave. It is breathable, resilient to creases and has a reassuring elegant drape quality. Tropical suiting fabrics are designed to be hard-wearing, breathable and easy wear with the minimum care (although wool products should not be thrown in the washing machine). This hybrid of virgin wool & poly has all the qualities of a classic tropical suiting with the benefit of a slightly heavier feel, the polyester adding a little more stability.
Tropical Soiree - dark and sophisticated, like a mysterious evening encounter, is surprisingly substantial but by no means heavy in weight and is the perfect versatile fabric for an array of apparel . Ladies think of this as a serious alternative to your usual navy dress crepe; ideal for all your separates and key pieces which form your office attire wardrobe.
Tropical Soiree will make classic blazers, waistcoats, matching trousers, skirts, pinafore dresses, shift dresses and all those other key pieces. Take this serious, hard-wearing fabric out of its corporate zone and create smart/casual easy-to-make and easy-to-wear pieces. Look to pattern companies such as The Assembly Line, Merchant & Mills, The Makers Atelier and Homer & Howells for clean simple lines and easy to wear pieces.
