Italian Plaid is a beautiful wool, 58″ wide. This is a gorgeous taupe/beige, red and blue plaid wool. Perfect for winter coats and jackets, waterfall cardigans and more. Very easy to sew, will not fray. May contain a small percentage of other natural fibres. 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.
