PRODUCT INFORMATION
This Fabric is sold in units of 50cm (= .5m; ½ m). For example, if you would like 2.5m, then enter the quantity ‘5’. As Cloth Edit only receives limited quantities of each fabric, err on the side of caution when ordering. Take into account any additional length etc.

Every effort has been made to present the fabric as accurately as possible. If the precise colour, weight and feel of the fabric is important for your decision, and the photos aren’t giving you enough detail, the best option to eliminate disappointment is to use the Swatch Service. Each Swatch is .50c. See under the 'About' tab for more details.

This is one of the Four Japanese Wool Blends from the Cloth Edit 2021 Autumn/Winter Collection.  This is an ivory and wheat colour mid-heavy weight coating, with chevron stripes.  It has a little texture but it isn’t ‘scratchy’.  It has a very interesting weave that doesn’t fray easily, and will be your go-to weekend jacket or coat.  It has a casual elegance, and would be great in many iterations of outerwear.  If you would like to line your ‘Weekender’ coat, jacket or coatigan, our ‘All the Fish’ cotton was hand selected to work with this wool.  The cotton is wonderful for a blouse or shirt, but absolutely gorgeous as a soft lining with good ‘slip’.  This is a designer – dead stock fabric, so once it is gone, it is gone.  It is very unique and is a natural/neutral classic.   

 

For your cloth edit, don’t just think of long, mid-winter coats.  This would be also fantastic in a cropped, hip or thigh length coat/coatigan also.  It would also be great, as an oversized blazer.  While it is a bit thick to make a fitted jacket, a slightly looser fit blazer would give your opportunity for some patient tailoring, and it would press into shape beautifully.

     

Here are some indie sewing pattern suggestions:

  • Friday Pattern Company – Heather Blazer (oversized)
  • I AM Patterns – Merlin Coat (coming June 3)
  • Closet Core Patterns – Sienna Maker
  • Folkwear Patterns – Hapi and Haori (the Hapi)
  • In The Folds – Flynn Jacket
  • Nina Lee - Richmond
  • Papercut Patterns – Stacker, Sapporo (Nova Coat/Jacket), Juno (Wool isn’t listed as a rec. fabric, but I think it would be lovely)
  • Pattern Fantastique – Falda
  • Pauline Alice Patterns – Ayora Jacket (wool isn’t on the list of rec. fabric but I think this is such a simple shape, it would work well. Line with cotton).

Cloth Care:

Wool cannot be washed in a machine.  Dry Clean only.  Spot test for iron temp, and use the cool/warm/wool iron setting.  Steam when pressing.  It is advisable to use a pressing cloth, and buffer your dart pressing with scraps of the cloth so the dart lines don’t show on the right side.   Keep garments clean by brushing off surface dust and dirt.  Do not spot clean.
