Granite Pathways is a classic pale grey fabric with dark black undertones and silvery highlights. This superb grey fabric will make classic wardrobe staples; imagine Oxford wide legged trousers or cigar pants with turn ups showing the darker reverse. This superb closely woven fine fabric has a beautiful lustrous sheen, a soft drapey medium weight handle and the 2% elastane giving just width wise stretch for ease of movement yet still stable lengthwise.
Woven in a waved twill style pattern which appears like tiny broken herringbone pathways. With a black warp thread and the stunning pale grey on the weft, it has produced a fabric with great depth, the weave details in Granite Pathways sitting in the foreground and the back of the warp peeping through. This close quality weave structure makes the reverse of this fabric one you wont be ashamed to show, perhaps even make a feature of it! It has much more of the black warp in its makeup showing as a hazy twill with pale grey silvery flecks.
Soft drapey wool mix fabrics which feel as stunning as Granite Pathways are suitable for a plethora of sewing projects. Go ahead and make elegant Autumn/Winter dresses, shift dresses, pinafore dresses, skater style dresses, pencil skirts, A-line skirts, flared and godet skirts, circle skirts, softly pleated front trousers and Viv Westwood style tuck and drape garments too!
Also excellent for dramatic coats with full skirts or back pleat, simple capes, wraps and unlined coatigans; simply French seam or bind the seams!
