Greige Marvelous Melton
Fabric Code: A4a12
Greige Marvelous Melton is a fabulously versatile felted wool fabric in a subtle shade that's a mixture of grey and beige.Some may call it Taupe but we thought Greige just sums this up !
Greige Marvelous Melton boasts a superb evenly felted dense look and handle. The face side displays a slightly more brushed surface than the reverse, similar in weight and handle to our Marled Meltons, this solid greige melton boasts a stable handle that drapes reassuringly and is 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; this fabric is ideal for fashioning classic outerwear pieces and hard-wearing separates, this melton 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.
Don't forget all the matching accessories you can make too; bags, hats and caps are perfect for using the scraps up and you can easily mix and match this neutral fabric with other tweedy fabrics for a truly Britishheritage style, take inspiration from designers such as Burberry, add linings using Liberty lawn for the final flourish!
