This camel wool twill fabric is the latest in our collection of classic British wools. A finely-woven twill with the slightest, smoothest of naps, this camel wool twill fabric is a lighter-weight wool suiting fabric with a gentle handle and excellent opacity.
As you can see in this video, our camel wool twill fabric isn’t a draping dress fabric – it has more body than some of our lighter-weight wool twill fabrics – it’s very definitely a suiting although that doesn’t mean that it’s any less versatile.
Structured dresses, skirts, trousers and jackets – even lighter-weight coats would all be options. Our camel wool twill fabric is an elegant fabric and one which will give excellent service as the basis for a classic wardrobe. As camel-coloured wools go, this is a slightly paler-than-average colour which in some lights seems cool and calm – and in others warmer. We’re currently eyeing it up as a skirt – one pattern on the shortlist is this one – the ‘Hagen’ skirt from new-to-us Salme pattern company. We like the A-line structure, the length and the levity of that front pocket.
Keep an eye on our blog to see if it makes the cut!
We recommend spot- and dry-cleaning wool garments, particularly if they’re lined. Find out more on our About our fabric pages
