This fabric is in the running for "absolutely perfect coating fabric", and it might just take home the crown. It's a heavyweight fabric, but is considered lightweight for coating. It's a boucle coating, which means it has a wooly, slubby texture to it that just scream coziness and warmth. However, due to the viscose content, it's got movement and drape, so basically style out the wazoo. Also, and this is the big thing, it doesn't fray. It's ideal for unlined projects, or patterns that normally use boiled wool. It's the drapey, more affordable version of boiled wool. Plus those colours, oh GOSH those colours.
Content: 60% Viscose 40% Wool
Weight: 10 oz/sq yd
Stretch: no stretch
Drape: medium drape with excellent movement
Care: Hand wash cold or dry clean. Do not tumble dry unless you want a teeny tiny version of your make (it will felt). Best practice: hang outside to air out the wool, shake and brush off any dirt. This is the rare instance where you don't have to pre-wash your fabric! Hooray!
Best suited for: Coats, Jackets, Ponchos
Fabric is priced and sold by the 1/4 metre. We cut multiple 1/4 metres continuously. A single 1/4 metre will be cut as a fat quarter, unless you request a skinny quarter. Fat Quarters are half the width of the fabric x 0.5m, whereas Skinny Quarters are the full width of the fabric x 0.25m. We do this so you can order just as much fabric as you need, to decrease fabric wastage.
