Wool Melton Black
per 1 metre
Wool Melton is thick wool with a felt-like smooth surface. It is hard wearing and wind and weather resistant. Scarlet hunting coats are traditionally made from melton cloth because of its weatherproof qualities. It was also used in black for the Donkey Jacket, an iconic symbol of the labouring man.
Is this wool itchy?
Some people have more sensitive skin than others. This wool is a flat weave so it is not particulary itchy but we suggest a soft lining such as our silk habotai lining, polyester habotai lining or viscose lining.
Is this fabric too thick for skirts?
It tailors very well into jackets and skirts
