A gorgeous Italian-woven designer wool and silk blend, this super fine silky black warp sets the pavé pattern within the weave of this exquisite fabric. Producing a mini grid like effect (that is woven through the warp with the multi tonal sapphire blue yarn) Sapphire Pavé - Silky Slub Suiting features finely dispersed light silky flecks which appear like tiny pinpoints of starlight within a winter sky. The close weave construction of the beautiful flecked yarns display subtle highlights and darker undertones throughout, producing a fabric that is both visually and texturally complex and interesting.
Ideal for something other than your usual plain black or navy suit, and truly versatile fabric that allows you to coordinate with both lighter and darker tones with ease. Sapphire Pavé – Silky Slub Suiting has a wonderfully soft feel, stable handle and gorgeously soft medium weight drape quality too.
You’d be a fool to consign this stunner to the suiting projects only pile, as it will make both comfortable, warm (thanks to the high wool content, but not too warm) versatile garments which can be dressed up or dressed down. A fab substitute to lightweight denim too, there are more uses for suiting that just suits! These finely woven fabrics have a great handle and a soft drape, so they’re ideal for dresses, pinafores, skirts, jackets and trousers. Think about the drape of circle skirts and fit & flare style dresses. For a modern take on a classic style, this superb fabric will make excellent sheath dresses and pencil skirts too!
