Woven using NZ yarn, down in Oamaru (the steampunk capital of NZ), this fabric is made a little over 3 hours away from where I live and I’m not certain that I could get fabric that was woven any closer (thanks to the terrible state of industry here).
Isn’t this the most glorious thing you’ve ever seen? I’d love to get my hands on enough to make a coat from, but I know I’d never be able to settle on a pattern that wasn’t zero-waste!
While I start saving for making some of this fabric mine, I’ll also be keeping my eye out for fabric & scarves made using the un-dyed wool of different sheep to create patterns- Imagine a tweed jacket made from white, brown and black sheep. I’d be in eco-fabric heaven!
One thing to note with these patterns is that the PDF isn’t separated
out into pages, so you’ll have to organise that yourself. There are lots
of options online for changing a large PDF into individual sheets.
Size: Up to a woman size XXXXL (these are unisex patterns) or 50″ seat.
