There are thirty one prints in the whole collection with limited half metre & fat quarter bundles available. We've also done a few smaller sets based on the three colourways - Cloud, Berry and Spruce. This collection is printed on Lasenby quilting cotton weight.

Merchant & Mills Woolsey | the workroom

Merchant & Mills Woolsey

We are delighted to have a few bolts of Merchant & Mills Woolsey in the shop, this fabric does not disappoint in person. Woolsey is a wool/linen double gauze that has been pre-laundered at the mill to make the softest fabric to ever exist.

This cloth has two layers of linen/wool which are invisibly stitched together. This helps to trap air between the layers, which in turn keeps you very toasty. This fabric is beautiful for dressmaking as well as cushions, throws, curtains and would even make a very cosy scarf.
