100% wool jersey

rsew | Posted in Fabric and Trim on

where in the world can I find 100% lightweight wool jersey (to be felted) just like the jacket on Threads #147. I have looked the internet at various fabric sites and have received swatches of wool jersey but alas the swatches have lycra/polyester. How difficult is it to locate 100% wool jersey? I have even sent a email to “The Sewing Workshop” directed to Linda Lee-but have not received a reply. This is truly discouraging to see a fabric/garment idea then not be able to find a similar fabric to work with. Thanks for listening –I feel better now! Rsew

    Would you consider being in touch with Threads? It figures editors there could steer you to a source.

      I did send message to Threads-I was then sent a reply/link to Sewing Workshop website-I then sent a message to Sewing Workshop-requesting info on wool jersey fabric. No reply was sent to me.

        Disappointing for certain!! With the all of cyber space a site should consider auto response of some sort. Guess it might cost bucks though.

        Maybe the other URL's offered will be successful for you.

    Just received my order of 100% natural wool jersey from Very Baby in Rigby Utah. This is just what I wanted (Now on to the felting & sewing) .  Thanks so very much for enlightening me.
