our slawit structured cloth!
About the slawit structured range

In recent years we had requests from designers for something a little different in wool, something that would allow them to create less constructed garments, lighter with a great feel and drape. Almost a knitted cloth but with a woven construction to allow the consistency and stability in the finished garment.

We set about using various traditional weaving methods, even combinations to try and get the results we were looking for, eventually, with the right selection of yarns we found a way to achieve our goal.

We have been able to weave a fantastic range of cloths from our Slawit Structured Weave process. It allows an open weave format with a combination of standard dobby shaft construction and a repeating cross over tie weave.

This exciting range of new wool cloths, in various weights and colours, will open up great opportunities for our customers to design with. The focus on quality in these ranges, all our yarns are spun from the very best in raw wool stock, top dyed and colours blended to give the strength and depth of colour you simply don’t get from package dye yarns. The whole manufacturing process is done here in Huddersfield, the fabric is designed in our development studio, the yarns spun by the best wool spinners in Huddersfield, woven in our Mill and finished in Huddersfield’s legendary soft water.
