What is Wool Fabric?

Wool is a lovely natural fibre that comes from the fleece of sheep.  Woollen fabric makes excellent warm clothing for the colder autumn and winter months.  It feels warm to the touch in cold conditions and stays pleasantly cool in warmer conditions (being a natural insulator)  Additionally, it is resistant to static electricity.

What can I make with this fabric?

This fabric makes lovely warm jackets, coats, dresses, tunics, skirts, accessories and soft furnishings. We stock different weights and blends to suit different sewing projects and have a large range of colours available at different prices.

How do I care for this fabric?

Structured woollen coats and jackets are best to be professionally dry cleaned because they often contain items such as interfacing, linings, shoulder pads which can distort when wet.  Hand wash other wool garments in lukewarm water and mild soap or detergent.  Do not wring or twist.  Dry flat.
