Grey Melange Cavalry Twill Finer Weight Fabric
Finer weight Grey Melange Cavalry Twill is a beautiful, faced fabric. The grey melange has a flecked colour variation, giving the colour of this fabric a visual depth. On the faced side of this fabric, the twill weave is clearly visible. This cloth carefully combines a worsted yarn, with a woollen weft. Then firmly woven, to highlight the steep, double twill lines, that are such a striking feature of this fabric. Furthermore, this fabric also uses 100% merino wool, making it an environmentally conscious choice, for clothing and fashion brands, looking to create sustainable designs. In addition, merino wool has a softness, warmth and breathability, that makes it a desirable choice for clothing.
Finer Weight Lighter Weight
Cavalry twill is available in two weights. In addition to the standard heavier weight fabric, that weighs 660gsm, this finer weight fabric is 485gsm. The lighter weight version of the fabric has all the same features, but with added versatility. The lower gsm means that the finer weight variation offers more flexibility as a result.
Origins and Uses of Cavalry Twill

If you require a very lightweight twill fabric, then the Barathea range will be of interest to you. Barathea fabrics come in two weights – 400gsm as standard and 280gsm for the lighter weight variant.
Colour Variations of Woollen Fabrics
This 100% merino wool fabric is a natural material and colour variation is evidence of the natural origin of the material. Therefore the product colour is only indicative, as it is not possible to assure consistency of colour in a natural product due to the natural colour of raw wool and absorption of dyes. Colour matching cannot be guaranteed on shipments. The variation will be more pronounced beyond the normal commercial range.
