INSULATED PLAID KNIT
Brrrr...it's cold outside - Our spacious and well-stocked shop has just-about everything you need for your Fall and Winter sewing projects. This week we're featuring this cozy and versatile insulated knit in a black and charcoal plaid. Yours truly made a fall jacket with asymmetrical collars and dolman sleeves using Very Easy Vogue pattern #9156 It went together well and I can't wait to take it out for a spin! (please note that the fabric was identified as being a wool knit in our e-mail to our newsletter list, but the top layer is a natural fiber (maybe cotton) with a synthetic lining inside and knit backing)
MERINO WOOL JERSEY KNIT
OMG - Christmas has come early to OSF. We will have pre-cut bundles of Merino Wool Jersey Knit for sale this Thursday. Available in two colours: See photo Cocoa (top) and light-weight Taupe (bottom) - just in time to coordinate with your Fall wardrobe!. Merino wool has amazing properties to keep you warm when it's cold but this natural fibre also helps to cool you in the summer and it's great for active wear. There will be a limit of one bundle per customer.
