Add a swatch - $1.00 USD
Winter is Coming! Fend off the winter doldrums with this uber-warm Italian wool blend coating in a striking black and white houndstooth pattern. Midweight with a pronounced weave and a structured drape, we recommend it for cozy coats, shawls, or perhaps a lovely lap blanket.
Don’t forget to add our weft interfacing for all your tailoring projects!
Always pretreat fabric before sewing to remove chemical sizing from the manufacturing process. Pre-washing also gives you a better sense of the true drape and handfeel of a fabric. We recommend washing and drying fabric in the same way you intend to wash your finished garment. Be sure to separate brights and colours, as some dyes and prints may run the first few times you wash them.
Wool should not be washed in a machine; the agitation will felt the fibres. Some lightweight wools can be gently hand washed using cool water and gentle detergent like Woolite. To dry, wrap in dry towels and compress to soak up excess moisture before hanging to dry or laying flat to dry. It’s best to hang over a rack rather than on a line since the weight of wet wool will stretch and distort. Heavier wools like coating should not be washed, but it is very important to remove as much shrinkage as possible before sewing. While it can be taken to the drycleaner for professional steam-shrinking, here’s an easy home hack for less delicate wool. Fill your dryer with wet (not wet) towels and tumble dry on medium-high for 40 minutes. The steam from the towels will shrink and condition the wool. Use a warm iron with lots of steam when pressing; a press cloth will help prevent “shine” left from a too hot iron.
