What is Boiled Wool & Viscose?

Boiled Wool Blend is similar to 100% Boiled Wool but has viscose added. This makes a drapier and thinner fabric.

What can I sew with Boiled Wool & Viscose Blend?

This fabric makes great warm autumn/winter garments, such as dresses, skirts and tunics. It is also fabulous for making blazers, jackets and coats. You can also use it for soft furnishings. You will find it easy to cut and sew, and the cut edges do not fray, meaning hemming and lining is optional.

How do I care for these fabrics?

We recommend dry cleaning. However, if you decide to wash it, use a small amount of mild detergent. Either hand wash or use a cool machine wash cycle. Lay flat to dry and don’t wring. Press on a medium heat iron with steam from the wrong side of the fabric.
