Shepherd's Check Fancy Plaid is a beautifully woven wool with shades in chocolatey brown, warm beige, caramel, grey, red and black. This is actually a very cleverly woven pattern in what we've found to be called a Shepherd's Check design - very intricate and complex! The fabric looks like a grey, red and dark brown/black plaid with Houndstooth-like motifs placed alternately within the plaid squares. It also has loosely woven diagonals which give the fabric some crosswise stretch and run throughout the surface.
With a slightly brushed feel, this medium weight woolen fabric has a firmly woven base with looser woven overthreads. The soft, medium weight creates a supple drapey handle which is perfect for unstructured garments. You can however use this Shepherd's Check for structured pieces with the aid of interfacing and lining.
Tunics, tucked and gathered skirts and dresses, unlined coats or cardigans, scarves and throws are ideal choices when creating something with this sumptuous fancy design.
