120 cm wide/ 47″ wide

We ordered our first fabric from Merchant & Mills and we went big!  Symphony slub jacquard and wow is it a stunner!  This fabric is prewashed and made in India.  This is only produced in 5 meter pieces so we are selling it in 2.5 meter cuts and 5 meter cuts which is equivalent to 2 3/4 yds and 5 1/2 yds.  This fabric is so precious we don’t dare waste an inch of it!  A great excuse to share a cut with your best sewing friend.

“A soft mid green.. This layered cotton blend has a jacquard weave that gives it a quilted look and feel. The linen and viscose content in this cloth means it has a slightly visible slub to it.

The reverse is gauzy, there is no batting in the middle of this cloth, the inside is made up of a series of thicker yarns which gives it the quilted feel. The top is a fine cotton blend.

If possible we would advise overlocking your raw edges before sewing to prevent fraying. We can see this being used for throws, quilts, quilted jackets, oversized cushions, and smaller cosmetic bags” -Courtesy of Merchant & Mills

The gorgeous wool continues to arrive for the season and we are overwhelmed by this latest shipment!  Two bolts of spectacular shades of wool gauze.  Light, spongy still with a substantial weight and excellent drape.  Woven texture and a semi sheer quality.  A perfect fabric for a winter blouse, shawl, cardigan jacket or gathered dress.  We think this will make a great layering piece.  Not to mention the two colors we got are to die for!  We do have a color card if you are interested in ordering another shade.
