Double-Faced Wools

Double faced fabrics are fabrics that are finished the same on either side, meaning that either side can be used as the outer or right side. Double faced wools are made using two wefts and one warp. These fabrics can be used for blankets, couture self- lined coats and other furnishing fabrics. Double faced wools can be two separate colours and basically looks like two separate fabrics that are attached to each other, which they are with thread. Because of its construction and the fact it is reversible, all the seams and sewing has to be as concealed and as unnoticeable as possible, meaning it is quite difficult to work with.
