This first rate fabric has it all! Its made from super fine wool and silk and also has a truly classy natural tone and palette. Soft peaty brown forms the high-thread-count warp, which is then woven through the weft with a stunning pewter grey yarn that has both high and low lights of silver and black. These combine to give the wonderful and versatile taupe merl effect.
This fabric also has a feel and a handle to die for, due to its high silk content. It has a very soft and comforting feel, a brilliant choice for all you natural fibre fans! It feels cool to the touch and yet keeps you warm when needed, it's almost like having an inbuilt thermostat.
You can use this fabric all year round. When spring and summer comes this will make wonderful work-wear pieces such as skirts, trousers and pinafores. Team up with classic white shirts for a crisp look. When the colder months start to draw in, why not try waistcoats, jackets, dresses and even full suits. Mix and match with your winter woollies and you'll have truly versatile key pieces from a wonderful fabric you'll never tire of!
Silky Taupe Merl suiting is an easy sew and great all-round fabric, very similar to our famous sell-out, Tweedy Peacock.
