Valcarb White Heavyweight Melton Cloth
Valcarb White Heavyweight Melton cloth is a traditional cloth, made of wool and woven in a twill pattern. Its defining characteristics are its thickness and felt-like smooth surface. Unlike other twill weave cloth, the pattern is concealed, from the finishing processes used. Because of its dense, quasi-felted texture, it frays minimally or not at all. It is hard-wearing and wind and weather resistant, while the wool provides warmth.
Made from pure merino wool, combined with these features, makes Melton cloth an ideal cloth for eco-conscious outerwear, particularly coats and jackets. Also, Melton cloth fabrics are used widely for interiors. These fabrics make a luxurious choice for drapes and curtains. Once again the dense weave of the fabric helps to prevent draughts, while the wool provides both good thermal and sound insulation. You can read more about this on our article Green Baize Doors – Part of British Heritage.
This heavyweight Melton cloth is 470gsm with a thickness of approximately 1.6mm. Made using worsted yarn, ensures the heritage quality of this fabric. We stock a wide range of heritage grade fabrics, grouping them in a separate section called True Heritage.
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.
