WeatherWool FullWeight and MidWeight Merino Jacquard Fabric
Please note: Except for MidWeight Drab and MidWeight Lynx, we are sold out of Fabric. We are doing all we can to make more. But the virus and Hurricane Ida have hindered and even stopped work at some of the companies who help make our Fabric.
MidWeight Fabrics are "live" and the other Fabrics can be backordered without obligation (price set to 0) from this page. Latest information about our production is here. Our entire inventory is here. THANKS for your patience.
WeatherWool Merino Jacquard Fabric is $100 per running yard. A running yard is always 36 inches (91 cm) long and the width of the new bolts of Fabric is about 53 inches (135 cm) wide, with about 1.5 inches (almost 4 cm) of selvedge on each side. The actual width varies slightly.
(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" (opsy) or "grams per square meter" (gsm). 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 along 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 although this is a different meaning of the word Selvedge.
WeatherWool 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, includes our MidWeight Fabrics in Drab and Lynx Pattern. The Drab is available now, and we expect the Lynx in January 2020. Our Batch 7 will include all our FullWeight Fabrics (Black, Drab, Duff and Lynx Pattern) as well as more MidWeight, but all of this is "on-hold" pending a new dye-house.
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. Whether you are amateur or professional, we love hearing people's ideas for our Fabrics.
Thank You! --- Ralph
