WeatherWool FullWeight and MidWeight Merino Jacquard Fabric
Please note: Sorry, we are sold out of Fabric. And we are doing all we can to make more. But virus-world has hindered and even stopped work at some of the companies who help make our Fabric. Things are moving again, and we expect to have Fabric available for sale by 4th quarter 2021. But this is a weird time in the USA ...
WeatherWool Merino Jacquard Fabric is sold by the running yard. When we have Fabric for sale, we anticipate a price of $100 per running yard. A running yard will always be 36 inches (91 cm) long and the width of the new bolts of Fabric will be about 52 inches (125 cm) wide, with about 1.5 inches (almost 4 cm) of selvedge on each side.
(Incidentally, when people reference "weight" of woolen fabric, at least in USA, they are almost always referring to the weight of a running yard. But there is no standard width to a running yard, so comparisons are meaningless unless the weight is quoted as "ounces per square yard" or "grams per square meter". But anyway, weight does not indicate performance. Better fiber and enhanced weaving can offer greater performance and less weight.)
When we founded WeatherWool, fabric that met our specs was simply not available for purchase. So we spent three years developing our own unique 100% Merino Jacquard Hardcore Luxury® Fabric, the foundation of our company. WeatherWool Fabric is chosen for luxury and fashion in the cityscape ... and chosen for performance in the most demanding of field conditions.
Selvedge, also known as selvage, is the “extra” fabric running the edges of the entire length of a bolt of Fabric. The selvedge (originally "self-edge") contains the same premium yarn as the rest of the bolt, and it can be used, although it looks a little different. We used the selvedge in our Poncho, for example, and we used the width of the entire bolt of Fabric. Selvedge Denim has become extremely popular.
The Fabric can be ordered by the yard. 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.
Fabric Batch 6, now in production, will include our usual two MidWeight Fabrics in Drab and Lynx Pattern. In production in Batch 7 are our four FullWeight Fabrics in Black, Drab, Duff and Lynx Pattern. We will not be making MidWeight Undyed before Batch 8, which we have not yet started to process.
Our Fabric is the heart of what we do, and has gained the attention of other clothing makers. Please contact us directly if you are interested in using our Fabric in collaboration with your own brand. Working with American Trench was fun. Whether you are amateur or professional, we love hearing people's ideas for our Fabrics.
Thank You! --- Ralph
