This richly coloured fine worsted wool was expertly woven in Italy for a renowned British designer. Bullfinch - Dimple Wool is a fabulous pinky orange tone, like the breast feathers of a bullfinch. This lightweight woollen is woven using fine worsted yarn of two differing thicknesses and when held to the light you can see its small checked weave, which when woven at different tensions creates the small waffle-like uniform dimples throughout.
Bullfinch - Dimple Wool has a soft feel and excellent stability, with a little ease across the the width (due to the dimpled effect) and a soft drape quality that will gather and drape beautifully. This first rate designer fabric has similar qualities to seersucker and won't crease as easily as a smooth, flat weave worsted, and is therefore perfect for suits and semi structured styles. However suiting is not just for suits! Utilise the soft drape quality of this gorgeous Italian woven wool for feminine dresses and less formal attire. This richly toned woollen waffle is from a collection of four identical fabrics which are truly complimentary and will look spectacular when used collectively, either for colour-blocking or for smart separates that coordinate together.
Use Bullfinch - Dimple Wool to create stylish shirt dresses, classic long length shirt style, or full skirted retro style. Put this superb fabric to use for less formal, but equally smart outfits, such as tunics, pinafore dresses and skirts 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 designer worsted. There are many other patterns available suitable to use with this fabric, think clean simple lines and unfussy cuts!
