Stairway to Heaven - Finest Wool & Silk Jacquard

Fabric Code: I1b20
We have run out of stock for this item.

This heavenly fabric was woven in Italy using the finest wool and silk yarn and it is one of the most beautiful ivory coloured fabrics we've seen for a long time.

Lightweight but not at all flimsy, Stairway to Heaven is woven in a complex and close jacquard weave; a stepped, rectangular diagonal line formation gives the impression of tiny stairways climbing throughout the fabric. The complex jacquard weave creates blissful matte and sateen contrasts, showcasing the artful craftsmanship of this fine Italian fabric.

Stairway to Heaven - Finest Wool & Silk Jacquard is slightly translucent (but not at all sheer), this first rate fabric is stable width and length wise and boasts the softest fluid drape quality which catches the light perfectly. The combination of fine virgin wool and silk means it will keep you warm in winter but cool in summer. This heavenly fabric is the ideal alternative to fine silk and because of its wool content has so many more uses. 

Put Stairway to Heaven to use for classic silk shirts(with the added benefit of wool). Emphasise the drape quality by creating styles with full gathered sleeves and deep buttoned cuffs. Take inspiration from historical costume styles and use traditional techniques like fine pin-tucks and smocking details. Vogue designer pattern V1900 Karl Lagerfeld is an ideal full sleeved style. Use these fine techniques for future heirloom pieces, bridal wear and christening gowns with vintage lace will look divine made in Stairway to Heaven.
