  1. Sue

    Used 2.5 meters to make a Dawson Coatigan by The Thrifty Stitcher (Claire Louise Hardie). Was worried that it would not wash and dry well so trialled a 10x10cm piece which did not shrink, pill or lose colour. It was excellent material for this project and Sewed really easily and took the shape of the coatigan really well. Good weight…warm and not too heavy but could easily be described as outdoor coat weight. Colour excellent, easy to mark with tailor’s chalk and brushed out easily. I was still nervous about washing and drying as I hadn’t bothered pre sewing (normally would wash& dry) but I need not have worried. 20 min wash at 40 and tumble dry made it look even better. I pressed with a press cloth and used a wooden clapper during construction. Highly recommend this material for coats and heavier coatigan/jackets. Didn’t use thread which was kindly provided as I had some already and used a slightly longer stitch than usual.

      Thank you so much for your fab insight into this fabric Sue! I’m so glad that you enjoyed using it.
      Feedback like this is so valuable to us, as we (sadly!) cannot test every fabric ourselves.
