This is such a special fabric. A beautiful wool blend light-medium coating weight with a dainty lilac houndstooth. When you look closely you can see that there are tiny flecks of pink, blue, yellow and green speckled throughout the design. Really lovely!
The houndstooth design is approx. 0.5cm (3/16in) wide.
90% Polyester / 10% Wool

This fabric is perfect to make a coat in. Leave it unlined and bind the edges for a lighter option, or line it and perhaps add some interlining for a very substantial option that will see you through all of Winter. It would also be possible to make a skirt, trousers or pinafore in this fabric, but it will be on the heavier side, and might benefit being lined. A bag would be fabulous in this!

With this having wool in it, I would be careful with pre-washing. I would recommend steaming it or drying cleaning. However, you could try pre-washing a small square as a test.
