Presenting a gorgeous, medium-weight, wool gabardine in an almost black, charcoal coloration. Not only is this a beautiful black fabric, it is speckled with white threads throughout. Gabardine is a fabric traditionally made from worsted wool and tightly woven in a warp-faced steep or regular twill. Gabardines are often used to create suits, overcoats, trousers, uniforms, and windbreakers. This gabardine in particular is woven as a twill fabric and contains a slightly ribbed texture. Completely opaque, this wool fabric can also be used to make business dresses and pencil skirts.

Learn about fabric careHOW TO CARE FOR WOOL FABRICS: Dry-cleaning is recommended, though some wools can take hand washing. Always test a swatch first if you are going to care for your wool fabrics at home rather than using a drycleaner. Many of the fine wools Mood sells online and in-store have already been "sponged," or preshrunk, but you can preshrink your wool if necessary. Mood recommends taking your uncut wool fabric to the drycleaners and asking them to steam it for you, which will safely preshrink it more effectively than you can using home methods. Mood strongly recommends test-laundering a swatch, if you plan to wash your garment or home furnishings yourself.
