Cotton traces have been dated back to 3200 BC in India, and in Mexico 5500 BC. Cotton has been spun, woven and dyed since prehistoric times! Traditionally manufactured in India and the American south – cotton didn’t really show up in Europe until the middle ages. And it is still the worlds most used fibre for clothing.
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.
