|Composition:||100% Worsted Wool|
This suiting fabric is made of Super 180’s worsted wool. Constructed in a diagonal weave, with the finest two-fold yarns both in warp and weft, it features a plain black color, perfect for classic suits. The fabric is smooth and soft, with a subtle sheen brought about by long staple wool fibers. One of its multiple advantages is a luxurious drape that gives a perfect fit.
Men’s suiting fabrics often have a woven ‘Super’ number at the selvedge. It stands for the fineness of wool yarn: the higher the Super number, the finer the fabric. Any cloth from Super 100’s to Super 250’s is considered to be of premium quality.
Does it mean that Super 250’s is better than Super 100’s? It may be half true, as such fabrics are much thinner and more fragile. A Super 250’s suit makes a splendid look, but it is more prone to damaging and scraping. Such delicate fabrics are best used for special occasion jackets and trousers.
Wool is a natural fiber clipped from animals such as sheep, goat, camel, llama, alpaca, etc. 100% worsted wool is renowned for its warmth and crease resistance, as well as moisture absorbing properties. One of the softest kinds is the merino wool sheared off merino sheep. Available in a range of weaves, designs and colors, worsted wool fabrics are mostly used for overcoats, jackets, suits, and dresses and are also a popular choice for home textiles.
Suiting fabrics are always in high demand especially when it comes to business wear. Although there are several types of wool one can use for jackets and trousers, merino wool is by far one of the best. It comes from merino sheep that lives in Australia and New Zealand in extreme weather conditions.
