Most patterns give you an indication of the weight of the fabric to choose to sew the model in question.

Depending on the coat model that you want to sew, you will want more or less flexible wool.

For a steepening and heavy aspect, preferably chosen a caban of wool.


What woolen weight to choose according to your sewing project?

For a jacket, choose a wool that weighs approximately 250 grams per ml. If you want to sew a jacket halfway between the jacket and the coat chosen one weight between 250gr/ml and 500gr/ml.

If you want to sew a jacket or pants or a type skirt tailor, table rather on a 150gr/ml wool. It will therefore be a woolen drapery.
