Fabric Code: J2b23

Why have cotton, when you can have wool + silk +  linen???

This first rate, Italian woven fabric has so many contradictions that are all beneficial you won't believe it until you feel it! This amazing wool, silk and linen blend has a rustic weave, yet is luxuriously soft, its plain, flat weave may at first glance look ordinary, yet it boasts a subtle sheen. The fabric is light / medium weight yet is cosy and cool at the same time.

Why Have... When You Can Have Silk? boasts a calming neutral beige tone, has excellent stability and the softest drape quality. If like me you are a colour junkie, fear not! Create basic staples from this beauty you can sit alongside your bright colours and be assured you are wearing the finest Italian woven fibres.

Utility styles with pocket details and tie belts such as the Sienna Maker Jacket from Closet Case Patterns and the Foreman Jacket from Merchant and Mills are ideal. You will wear these pieces with self assured confidence and understated elegance. Create softly draped dresses and tunics with simple pleat details like The Factory Dress and the Top 64There are a host of other fabulous patterns on the market, just think clean simple lines and let this fabric do the talking. Add some fine gathers to a simple pinafore dress style for a comfortable, country / peasant style, perfect for layering with classic Liberty Lawn shirts and blouses or simple roll neck tops. Simplicity Dottie Angels patterns have a lovely country style.
