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.
drapes well, frays a little,

The color is slightly darker than the photo may indicate. I love the drape of this fabric and the stripes themselves are very subtle.
I added a neck facing to my dress and hong kong seams to the shoulders but found the outline of the aforementioned very THICK and pronounced on the right side, before AND after pressing. YET, its not such a thick fabric where lining is optional- in natural light, it is slightly transparent and lining is necessary in my opinion. So eventually I serged the rest of the ends and pressed.
PLEASE NOTE: The above numbers are estimations only. Please take into account garment size, lining and fabric width.
