Boiled wool swatch - 50 x 70cm - colour dark grey.
100% wool. Weight: 410g/m².
Boiled wool is a great fabric for making small bags and pouches or even making cushions or lining plaids. The best thing about boiled wool is that it doesn't fray and doesn't need a seam. Another advantage is that it doesn't pill or crease.
This is a wool fabric that has been "fulled"or felted, making it compact, solid and rainproof. It has a supple and soft texture. It should not be confused with felt: boiled wool is a noble material made of woven wool, whereas felt is made from synthetic fabrics.
