Gorgeous italian fine wool with a little viscose. for drape and softness.
Small Prince of Wales style check on this loosely woven, light fabric with a little stretch. It is really lovely to feel.
Fantastic weight for draping dresses and skirts, – anything which is not really fitted. I would recommend this fabric for intermediate to advanced sewists.
Treat the fabric as though it is a wool jumper.
I would not recommend putting this in the washing machine!
I suggest that you dry clean only. If you can’t resist washing it, then cut a piece of the fabric, measure it and then wash gently by hand. See if there is any shrinkage or change in the fabric and you can decide.
It is so special, it deserves a bit of pampering !
