London Cloth Company Wool - Dalston
A stunningly distinctive classic gingham check with a substantial hand feel and hairy texture. Approximate weight is 350g/m2. Use this for outerwear, cushions, blankets... Known as the 'Shepherd's Check'. This hairy cloth incorporates kemp fibres into the spun wool, a generally undesirable fibre from the sheep's skin that in fact offers a hardy finish and slightly hairy appearance.
Price is per HALF metre. Multiple quantities will be cut as a continuous length.
150cm wide. 100% British wool.
This cloth should be drycleaned or handwashed using a mild detergent without any agitation. We recommend spraying it with a mild fabric freshener rather than washing where possible.
