Purple Italian Wool & Rayon Knitted Open Weave is 60″ wide (150cm). This a light weight, soft cloth. The true colour tones of this fabric is actually purple/mauve and grey. The pictures do not do this beautiful cloth justice – it’s a truly stunning, good quality cloth. Perfect for cardigans, wraps, ponchos, oversized relaxed jackets and more. Very easy to sew and will not fray. We recommend dry cleaning 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.
