Blackcurrant - Marled Melton is an all wool melton fabric from the Weaver’s Garden collection, one of our very special exclusive Heart of Huddersfield wools.
This 100% wool is created by weaving a natural and grey marled yarn on both the warp and weft. The fabric is then fulled (one of the processes used in creating melton) to give that felt-like finish. Each marled melton is then piece-dyed to its own unique colour, which emphasises the darker underlying grey fibres to create a multi tonal marled effect, hence the name: Marled Melton.
The blend of purple and grey tones in Blackcurrant - Marled Melton produce this rich fruity purple tone, just one of the colours that we would see in a traditional cottage garden where Hydrangeas, Pansies and Bluebells are aplenty.
This closely woven, felted and brushed 100% wool has a versatile medium / heavy weight and a traditional wool feel that is lightly brushed and cosy. Boasting a stable handle that drapes reassuringly, Blackcurrant - Marled Melton is the perfect for keeping the elements out! A 100% wool fabric that will do as you tell it. Woollen fabrics of this kind are easy to sew and will stand the test of time.
Dressmakers, Reenactors, Costumiers, Interior Designers and Craftspeople – you will find a plethora of uses for this first-rate melton fabric, taking you through A/W and into spring.
Dressmakers; this fabric is ideal for fashioning classic outerwear pieces and hard-wearing separates, these meltons will keep you especially warm and dry without being too heavy or bulky. Start with simple gilets and waistcoats or stylish wrap skirts for a quick make. When your sewing skills are more established, jackets, coats and capes will give you all the sewing satisfaction you could wish for, try classic pea coats, duffle coats and oversized statement coat styles (predicted to be popular this A/W). Choose a complimentary lining to give a sophisticated finish for garments that will soon become perennial favourites. This hard-wearing felted wool fabric is ideal for field style jackets and country clothing too. Style your Blackcurrant - Marled Melton makes with other jewel tones from the Weaver’s Garden collection for a rich and coordinating palette.
