WeatherWool FullWeight and MidWeight Merino Jacquard Fabric
Quick comment: When we founded WeatherWool, fabric that met our specs was simply not available for purchase. So we spent three years developing our own unique Hardcore Luxury® Fabric, the foundation of all that we do. WeatherWool Fabric is chosen for luxury and fashion in the cityscape ... and chosen for performance in the most demanding of field conditions.
WeatherWool Merino Jacquard fabric is sold by the running yard. Our running yard is 36 inches (91.4 cm) long and 46 inches (117 cm) total width, with 43 inches (109 cm) of the width being usable Fabric, as described below. The Undyed MidWeight Fabric is about 4 inches (10 cm) narrower.
Our fabric bolts are 46 inches (117 cm) wide. Our width includes 3 inches (7.6 cm) of selvedge -- 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) on each side, meaning the width gives 43 inches (109 cm) of usable Fabric. This usable width is conservative; the selvedge is usually narrower than stated. Selvedge, also known as selvage, is the “extra” fabric running the entire length of a bolt of Fabric. The selvedge (originally "self-edge") contains the same premium fiber as the rest of the bolt, and it can be used. We use the selvedge in our Poncho, for example. Selvedge Denim has become extremely popular.
Please call if you wish to order partial yards. The shopping cart software does not support partial products ... it's not designed to support items ordered by length or by weight, so it won't allow, for example, 3.5 yards.
Our Fabric is the heart of what we do, and it is gaining the attention of other clothing makers. For example, American Trench offers a WeatherWool Peacoat. Please contact us directly if you are interested in using our Fabric in collaboration with your own brand.
