Presenting a novelty grouping of French terry wool knits closely resembling that of a thick boiled wool. Made from a blend of wool and polyester, this material is luminous, textural and stretches solely in the weft. With its flimsy structure, this knit must be lined if used for outerwear applications. Uses for this textural delight may include jackets, vests, capes, etc. Note: This novelty knit can be machine washed, but should not be bleached or tumble dried. Drip dry this material and iron on high. If you opt to dry clean this fabric, do so using solvents as excessive water-based or detergent-based cleaning methods may cause excessive shrinkage. Keep in mind that water stains might become permanent. Frequently brush or vacuum to prevent build-up.
Content: 50% WOOL, 50% POLYESTER
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.
