double cloth

cwcory | Posted in Fabric and Trim on

Where does one buy ‘double cloth’? Is it just woven wool, or does it come in other fibers?

    Double cloth is a type of cloth that is woven so it has two good sides, and looks like two pieces of cloth that stuck together. It is actually woven this way. It is most commonly wool or wool blends, but can also be polyesters. I actually have not seen it in the stores for years, but with so many old fashioned fabrics coming back, I would not be surprised to see it. Try an online search in the fabric sites and see what they have first. Cathy

      Thank you.

      I've tried online search and haven't gotten fabric by the yard, but I'll try again.

        What do you need it for? Just curious. Try Haberman Fabrics, one link listed them as a source. Cathy

          I was reading a Taunton's Press 'threads' magazine article about Ralph Rucci's studio. I found it interesting because I like to make one of kind coats once in a while. The article said he used double cloth for most interesting techniques. I'd never heard of it. I wanted a piece of it to experiment with.

            Aah, I see, and completely understand. I have not had a chance to really search yet, My DD claimed her computer this weekend, and my brother loaned me a little old one, so all my bookmarks are gone. :(
            It is out there from what I am seeing, you might just have to contact some of the sources directly, as it seems to be under the specialty category. Good Luck with your search, let me know where you find it. Cathy

        Here is a link to a brown piece of wool. If brown isn't to your liking, perhaps this site could get different pieces from their supplier.http://www.thewoolconnection.com/catalog.php?category=1And there's one piece at http://www.fashionfabricsclub.com that is a combo of plain/plain in a wool coat fabric.I found the best results by Googling the query: double face wool
        You might try that and look at more of the results that I did and come up with something like you want.Good luck.

          Thank you. I'll certainly try it.
