Italian Open Weave Wool Mix is 54″ wide (140cm). This light weight wool is made up of two different shades of deep blues. Perfect for cardigans, wraps, ponchos, oversized relaxed jackets and more. Very easy to sew and will not fray. I would recommend to dry clean this fabric, however if you cut yourself two identical square samples, put one in the washing machine on a cool 30 degree wash and once dry, measure the two squares side by side to see if there has been any shrinkage in the cloth.
