Dorothea Striped Dark Grey Wool Suiting

£7.15 £5.95

A lovely dark grey wool suiting with mid-grey stripes that is made in Yorkshire.  The stripes are at intervals of 1.5 cm, and they run parallel to the selvedge.  This fabric has a very fine twill weave.  It is also woven from worsted yarns: worsted yarns have been carded and combed, which makes them smoother, stronger and more lustrous than regular woolen yarns.  Fabrics made from worsted yarns wear, tailor and press well.  Finally, this suiting is classified as a flannel suiting.  Wool flannel is nothing like the fuzzy cotton flannel used for pajamas: wool flannels are just wool fabrics that have been brushed slightly, producing a slightly napped finish.  The nap on this particular flannel is very slight.
