Darkest Deep Teal - 100% Virgin Wool Boiled Wool

Fabric Code: A5d9 (A1a4)
When ordering please note half metre units available. If you require 2.5m please order 5 x 0.5m cut length. We have added the half metre option to facilitate your needs. All fabrics will be sent as one continuous length.

This medium weight 100% virgin boiled wool is a fabulous dark deep teal that's so rich and dark you will feel enveloped in decadent jewels when wearing your ‘me made’ garments. It's knitted from a very fine bouclé like yarn, which gives a dense and cosy fabric with a soft textured surface that appears the same on both the face and reverse sides.

Boiled wool fabric is treated so that the knit shrinks together (just like when you put your favourite jumper in the hot wash by accident). This dense knitted fabric boasts a soft drape quality and a slight stretch across the width and down the length but is stable and easy to work with. The closely fused together yarns mean that boiled wool doesn't fray. Bonus! There are so many projects that you can get your teeth into with this one.

The best thing about boiled wool is that you don't have to finish or neaten the edges either, garments look quirky and unique even if you put the seams on the outside!

Start with a super quick and easy tube skirt: 1 seam and an elasticated waist - simple!

Alternatively try unlined waistcoats with a few simple seams, add patch pockets and you'll have a warm quirky easy-to-wear and quick make garment that you'll be proud to wear!

Dresses, tunics, pinafores, cardigans, jackets (we recommend the Morris Blazer- by Grainline studio patterns), waterfall front coatigans, wraps, ponchos and capes are all easy enough for beginner sewists using this versatile fabric. Customise yours with needle-felted or embroidered pockets or add a fancy trim to the edges. Boiled wool is also brilliant for smaller craft projects such as hats, scarves and bags, not to mention the comfort factor and insulating properties that we know wool is good for!

You may think that this is a strange time of year to be launching new boiled wool fabrics, however we do get asked for it on a daily basis. (It's really hard to source this fabric in today's industry). 92% of voters on our Instagram poll (25th March 2019) said that they would like to see these fabrics available online now. Here they are!
Brand new boiled wool fabrics now available at Fabworks Online, photos taken using on an iPhone 7. No editing whatsoever. We've taken a few shots to try and represent the colour as best we can using angles, twists, draping, etc.. These images are as close to the true colour as we can possibly get them, however unnatural lighting may give slightly distorted look. Please order a sample if you are unsure.
