Blue Jay - Light Flannel Herringbone is suitable for a wide range of seriously smart or smart/casual clothing. Originally made by Italian craftsmen for the same designer as our SOS collection, it's equally stunning and perfect for cross-seasonal wear - after all, wool is naturally temperature regulating!
Fine lightly brushed, complementary toned yarns sit together in this closely woven all wool with a fine herringbone weave detail. Darkest navy - the colour of the midnight sky - and dusty denim blue are cleverly woven together to produce an Air Force blue tone. This clever weave has the appearance of the fine blue feathers of a Jay and is where our fabric takes its name. Blue Jay features a stable light/medium weight handle that also has a beautifully soft and cosy drape quality with a lightly brushed feel.
Wool flannel weight fabrics are the go-to favourites for everyone from academics to royalty, perfect for smart ensembles for both ladies and gents alike. Air Force blue is a great colour, from cosy workwear or separates you can dress up or dress down. This super-soft wool blend will keep you warm and stylish.
Tailors rejoice; Blue Jay is a tailoring classic – perfect for jackets, full pleated trousers (paper bag styles) like our Pattern Stash - Cordelia Trouserspattern and matching waistcoats such as the Pattern Stash - Jemima Waistcoat. Blue Jay will make superb skirts from neat pencil skirts to gently flared styles, how about a flirty peplum or fan pleat? Create retro '40s and '50s style pinafore dresses ideal for teaming with closely fitted sweaters, or Peter Pan collared blouses. Update this classic and create sports luxe styles such as bomber and Harrington style jackets with gleaming zips and stud details. Create cosy utility-style over-shirts and blouson jackets with a retro vibe. This first-rate fabric will make neat and sharp details like pocket flaps and collars and cuffs stand out.
