At first glance this stunning all wool suiting appears to be a rich brown colour, but take a closer look and you'll see that this soft and lustrous light to medium weight wool is made up of a rich dark navy and brown warp thread, then woven with black, mustard and red. These appear on the surface like tiny evenly worked stitches throughout the fabric.
If you want a fabric that appears plain, but actually has amazing complex weave detail, this is the one for you. Think of all the colours you can pick out for choosing accessories! The fabric has a beautiful sheen and super soft feel, an almost brushed texture. With a closely woven reverse which is darker brown than the face, Silken Threads could be used on garments where the reverse side may show because the quality of the weave is so good.
This light/medium weight wool fabric has a stable handle and super soft drape, making it excellent for a plethora of garments and projects. Ideal for tailored suits, jackets, trousers, waistcoats, skirts, pinafores, sheath dresses, etc.. But why not use for softly draped dress styles that require a more relaxed look? Such as shirt dresses or '40s/'50s style dresses with fuller skirts?
Also great for stunning blinds, curtains and cushions for the home, as well as a multitude of crafting uses too!
