This heavyweight wool and polyester blend boiled wool is a fabulously versatile warm grey-brown colour. You can't go wrong with neutrals! It's knitted from a very fine bouclé yarn, with an even and almost patterned reverse (the bouclé is on the face).
Being a boiled wool it means that the fabric has been treated to shrink the knit together to form a dense knitted fabric with a soft feel and a slight stretch across the width and down the length. The best property that boiled wool carries is that it doesn't fray. There are numerous projects that you can get your teeth into with this one, the best thing about boiled wool is that you don't have to finish/neaten the edges either. Garments look quirky and unique even if you put the seams on the outside!
Start with a super quick and easy tube skirt: 1 seam and an elasticated waist - simple! Try unlined waistcoats with a few simple seams, add patch pockets and you'll have a warm quirky easy-to-wear and quick make garment that you'll be proud to wear! Dresses, tunics, pinafores, cardigans, waterfall front coatigans, wraps, ponchos and capes are all easy enough for a beginner to make from this versatile fabric. Why not customise yours with needle-felted or embroidered pockets or add a fancy trim to the edges? This fabric is also brilliant for smaller craft projects such as hats, scarves and bags.
