This beautiful 60" 100% boiled wool makes great jackets, outerwear, and skirts. Rather than a solid color, this wool has a great mottled look with warm orange, yellow, and red tones.
What makes boiled wool fabric so great? Since the wool fiber is crimped, the fibers are never packed tightly together, resulting in pockets of air. They are what give boiled wool its special warming properties. During production, the fabric is deliberately shrunk considerably, which changes its density. This is what makes boiled wool a durable fabric, which is resistant to dirt and cold temperatures. Wool fabric can also absorb up to a third of its own weight in water without feeling damp.
Care instructions: Boiled wool fabrics do not crease. Garments can be freshened by simply airing them. Boiled wool garments should be dry-cleaned.
