Ocean Deep - Felted Wool Coating is a truly hard-wearing (yet soft) felted woollen fabric. This closely woven, heavy twill is felted to give it a dense, lightly brushed quality that is less prone to fraying.
Using melange yarn with a deep ocean blue, multi-tonal palette blending rich french navy and midnight navy undertones. Ocean Deep is supremely warm and will mix and match perfectly with wool tweeds and other blue-toned country clothing and outdoor fabrics.
Boasting a super sturdy and stable handle, this virgin wool fabric has a sturdy, but surprisingly soft wool feel and a heavy but soft drape quality. The characteristic diagonal lines of the twill weave are still apparent in this densely felted fabric and the fine virgin wool fibres produce a subtle sheen. You can see the Italian craftsmanship shining through! Hard-wearing field coats and jackets made up in Ocean Deep will team up perfectly with country tweeds. Traditional Duffel style coats are of course the perfect garment to make from this sturdy fabric. Add some blue leather for attaching the toggles and cord.
This heavy fabric is also ideal for worker/ donkey jacket styles with leather or waxed fabric yokes. Team your garments up with weathered navy leather/ wax fabric for a superb combination. Utility style Shackets (or shirt/jackets) are another excellent choice to make, these unlined coat/jackets are a satisfying make and you don't have to neaten the seams thanks to the properties of minimal fraying! Use top-stitching to add detail and strength to seams, chunky buttons and you have the perfect throw on smart/casual garment for winter.
Historical costume makers and reenactors; this ocean toned fabric is perfect for a profusion of hard-wearing costumes!
If clothes making isn't your forte, use Ocean Deep for upholstery and soft furnishing projects such as seat pads, boxed cushions and footstools. You could also appliqué with rustic country tweeds and leathers for a very rural/gentlemen's club vibe!
