Heathland Country Check is a classic country check light/medium weight wool with a lovely natural woolly coloured background and a classic check design, from beautiful nature inspired greens (dried sage and dark olive), through to black, rich turmeric and a lovely deep dried cranberry.
Woven in soft and strong twill weave from a fine gauge yarn (not fluffy) the fabric has a light to medium weight handle with a soft drape and a soft smooth feel - not at all itchy or hairy! It is stable across the width and the length but has a good natural bias stretch.
An ideal fabric for any country style project. Classic checks never date so why not fashion yourself a stunning suit jacket, waistcoat, trousers or skirt. If you’re just a novice start with a simple pencil skirts or waistcoat to get the feel for this stunning fabric first. Heathland Country Check is ideal for a pair cigarette pants, neat pleated skirts and smart pinafore dresses. Why not cut on the bias for a Vivienne Westwood style tuck and pleat dress or skirt for that modern take on tweed.
