Just about the quickest way to warm up, this amazing organic wool fabric will delight you! Woven as a wool flannel and then fulled (a controlled felting process), the material is not as soft as a conventional flannel but is a dense, water-resistant, cozy joy to work with. Technically called "coating weight" or "outerwear weight," and weighing 14 ounces per square yard, you'll find so many wonderful ways to use this great fabric. Great for warm winter coats, scarves, capes, and making or lining snowgear; you won't want to be without a good stash of this fabric each winter. Absolutely perfect for puddle pads to protect mattresses and other upholstered surfaces -- finish the edges with wide cloth tape, serge them, or just leave them alone and deal with the minimal fraying. (The fabric manufacturer has an exclusive agreement with a maker of puddle pads, that's how good the material is!)
You'll find this is a ready-made child's blanket as well. Finish the edges as described above, and consider doubling the wool for extra warmth. (Some people choose to use this wool instead of batting for a warm, effective inner layer for baby quilts, etc.) It's also perfect for baby sleepsacks, which can make the difference between a cold, wakeful baby and a good night's sleep for everyone!
This is the same fabric as what we used to call our Heavy Fulled Wool Flannel - Wide, just a different width. Buy whichever one best suits your purposes.
Made from 100% organic Australian merino wool, woven in the United States. The fulling process produced about 20% shrinkage, and washing on hot can felt the material a bit more but much less than had the cloth not been pre-treated.
Individual rolls can have different properties -- slightly different weights, feels, etc.
