Silver Chalice is a hard-wearing silver/grey and black felted wool coating, woven from alternating grey and black warp and weft threads, producing a small grid like pattern that has a hazy effect (due to the fabric's felted finish). This fabric is a sturdy medium/heavy weight with a very raw wool feel and fine hair-like fibres that can be seen throughout the dense and compacted fabric. These qualities all make Silver Chalice a great fabric for hard-wearing structured coats and jackets. Think sturdy duffel coats, pea coats (fisherman style with silver buttons!), cocoon coats (unlined as the fabric will hardly fray).
Also perfect for bag making, hats and caps, as well as needle-felting projects - create your own bespoke design at a fraction of the price! (Embellished garments will be hitting the streets throughout A/W '16 - beat the trend.)
Most wool fabrics such as this one are great for interiors projects too - style your own cushions and light upholstery pieces for round the home!
