Cocoa Fine Wool Suiting is a gorgeous, rich chocolate brown fine wool suiting, boasting a matte finish and a flat weave. This excellent wool suiting is woven from fine yarns but is not as lightweight as some superfine worsteds.
Cocoa has a stable handle and some stretch across the width (from a little added elastane) and a superb and substantial drape quality. It's perfect for a plethora of dressmaking projects!
This warm chocolate shade is a fantastic shade for natural colour lovers and is perfect for teaming with greens and blues, such as our Truly Teal and Ultra Marine fine suitings. Alternatively, for a chic look you could combine the rich chocolate tone of Cocoa with our equally sumptuous Caramel shade. This wonderful fabric will look perfect teamed up with classic white shirts and long camel coats for a timeless suit ensemble.
Other fantastic uses include high waisted, pleated trousers, crisp cigar or capri pants and of course all of your casual tailoring needs. Jackets, pencil skirts, trousers etc. Make the most of this fabulous fabric's drape quality and width wise ease by fashioning 1950s style fit and flare dresses or cute skater-style dresses too!
The Merchant & Mills 'Shirt Dress' and 'Trapeze Dress' will look stunning in this fabric. There's also a simple drawstring-waist trouser pattern too (The 101 Trouser), which will work perfectly with this.
Other suggested uses are simple unlined jackets and coats (Merchant & Mills 'The Foreman'). There are many other patterns available suitable to use with Cocoa Fine Wool Suiting, think clean simple lines and unfussy cuts! Visit our suitings section for more hints, tips and uses.
