This classic micro houndstooth fine worsted suiting was originally woven for a top British designer in Japan. Carnelian & Navy Jet Micro Houndstooth has rich orange-brown tones of carnelian semi-precious stones sitting perfectly alongside rich navy-Jet. The union of these rich hues is a match made in heaven and sure to add a smart and cosy style to your bespoke makes.
Classic country style weaves will always be perennial favourites and this micro check is perfect to mix with larger country tweeds for a fabulous British heritage style, admired the world over, there's no wonder the Japanese market for woven woollens loves to emulate our quintessential British style.
Boasting a lightweight (but akin to a good flannel), with the benefit of the warmth and temperature regulating properties of wool. This first-rate suiting is stable and has a lovely soft drape quality, plus it's soft and warm to the touch.
This may be suiting fabric but suiting fabric is not just for suits. Think of this as you would a good quality cotton flannel, buy a little extra, prewash and you can use it in the same way as your cotton flannel. ( shrinkage will be minimal- the closer woven a fabric is the less likely it is to shrink) We do not advise tumble drying! Excessive heat is the enemy of wool.
Carnelian & Navy Jet will make fabulous fine suits and stylish trousers like our Pattern Stash - Cordelia Trousers but you can also make super shirtdresses, prairie-style dresses gathered and pleated skirts, '40s style dresses, sweet country style traditional little girls' dresses. Simple tunics and bohemian smocks to layer with your jeans and cardigans. Take a look at the 'Dottie Angels' patterns from Simplicity for some cute country styles perfect for teaming with other checks and natural fibre fabrics.
