Color Vision fabric guide: Part 1; Wool crepe
What is wool crepe?
Wool crepe is a stable fabric with a crinkled surface texture created by the tightly crimped yarns and slack warp yarns used in weaving. Crepe is made of woolen (shorter staple) or worsted (longer staple) yarns. Wool crepe has a very fluid drape, and is suitable for jackets, dresses and skirts.
When to wear it?
Wool crepe can be worn all year long, and especially for formal occasions since it does not crinkle easily either. Since wool crepe is a loose weave moisture evaporates easily, which makes it a comfortable fabric to wear for many occasions.
