Product description

Product description

Because this ivory wool twill with a diamond weave is made entirely of pure wool, it brings you all of the benefits of this wonderful natural fiber: It is warm but breathable, it keeps you warm even when it’s wet, it has wonderful self-cleaning properties, and it is entirely biodegradable, so when it reaches the end of its life cycle, it can be discarded without harming the planet.

This midweight wool fabric is a good choice for a winter blazer or skirt. It is not a winter-weight wool coating, however, so if you choose to use it for an overcoat, the result will be better suited to face the elements in autumn or spring. Made of pure wool, this fabric is also suitable for historical costuming; the diamond weave was not as common as plain weaves or ordinary twills, so this fabric is better suited for clothing characters of higher social standing. For further historical details see our post on wool fabric through the ages. If you are looking for a humbler variant, see our other wool fabrics – we carry wool broadcloth in plain weave and twill.

This fabric has a moderate drape (trousers or skirts made of it will hang well) but it takes pressed folds, pleats, and darts well. It’s a good idea to pre-shrink this fabric with a steam iron before sewing. To ensure you preserve the benefits of wool, choose a quality lining that breathes, such as silk twill (serge).

Care

We recommend dry cleaning this wool fabric at a reliable dry cleaner. You may hand wash or machine wash using the woolens program; use a special detergent for woolens; wash at a low temperature (30°C) with the spin cycle switched off. Do not wash on your machine’s default program and do not use your usual detergent; doing so can cause the fabric to shrink by 30% and thicken significantly. Wool garments do not need to be ironed; simply hang on a good hanger while damp to dry. When sewing, press on the back side using your iron’s wool setting.

FAQ

Should fabric be washed before sewing?

If we recommend pre-shrinking the fabric before sewing we usually say so in the product description. Let the recommended care notes in the fabric description be your guide – they will tell you if the fabric can be washed or steam ironed. Woolen fabrics are usually pre-shrunk by steaming from the back. Some fabrics should be dry cleaned only. For larger projects or more expensive fabrics, we recommend testing anything (washing, ironing, etc.) on a sample. Wool is a natural material and is never absolutely predictable.

Can I put goods on hold?

Yes. If you plan to pick up the goods in person at our store in Prague, you can put them on hold through the e-shop – there's a link just below the price on the product page. We will hold items for you for one week.

Do you accept orders by phone or email?

No. We only accept retail orders through the e-shop. This eliminates situations where someone else orders the last of an item while your order is still sitting in our inbox or lies jotted on a bit of paper by the phone. By purchasing online, you are putting an immediate hold on the product. Of course, you can always call or write to us if you need help making your selection.

Do you ship abroad?

Yes. We ship worldwide. The price of shipping is automatically calculated at checkout before payment after you select the country of delivery and the preferred carrier. If you do not find your country in the dropdown list, please contact us. You will find a rough overview of shipping costs in our shipping and payment terms.

When will my order be delivered?

The estimated delivery date with your selected carrier can be seen before payment is made at checkout. It is calculated as the time for processing and packing your order plus the time it takes the selected carrier to deliver to a specific destination – this can be from 2 days for delivery within the Czech Republic to a week for delivery outside the EU. Expect longer delivery times during big sales and holidays.
