There's something about the colour of this beautiful, super soft, cosy brushed all wool doeskin (fluffier & thicker melton-type fabric) that made us think of cool Alpine walks through the lakes and mountains of Austria. This is beautiful blue skies and cool blue-grey lakes embodied in a fab fabric.
Austrian Lake Doeskin is a closely woven, felted then brushed medium weight woollen that is dense, but not heavy. This fabric is stable width and lengthwise yet is malleable, soft and cosy with a reassuring drape quality too.
The winter pastels trend is still popular and this gorgeous tone of blue sits perfectly with the mustard, camel and vintage pink palette too. Use this first rate fabric to create cosy outerwear that will make you feel a million dollars. This is so super soft you would think it has a touch of cashmere in it.
Use Austrian Lake Doeskin to make the cutest children's coats and capes, ladies and men's Pea coats, blazers, capes and '80s / '90s style overcoats. There are a plethora of patterns aimed at confident beginners and intermediate sewists for you to choose from.
We love Sew Different's - Cocoon Coat, Thrifty Stitcher's Dawson Coatigan and Paper cut Pattern's Sapporo Coat to name just a few. If you want a quick make take advantage of the low fray qualities of melton and felted type wools and create waterfall front coatigans with simple belt closures, these are really easy to make and are excellent for layering.
