Can people please give me tips on how to tell the quality of wool fabric please?
I live in Bulgaria, the fabric here very rarely has labels and can range from simple astonishing quality to utterly terrible, and price is no guarantee. Sadly I tend to find out it's terrible AFTER I have made the garment [see photo].
I have a 6 yards of 14 oz grey felted “melton” that drapes nicely [see photo] but seems to have little ”spring” when crumpled and seems to hold the crumple creases a bit. I don't want to put 200+ hours of work into a suit that is a POS.
Terrible fabric - stretched beyond all recognition
