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.
Sharkskin with a sheen
February 26, 2015
This is a beautiful high quality fabric. The weave is very tight and smooth (except for the white slubs) . It gives the impression of a sharkskin style men's suiting fabric. It has a sheen that I didn't expect (the photo appeared very matte and textural to me but it is waaaay smoother than expected). I still like it and will still make it into a panelled pencil skirt but I'm glad I didn't buy enough for a jacket. Too much sheen for my personal style. I can imagine it making a great architectural formal dress.
