Fulled fabric is a kind of felted wool, the surface of the wool is slightly felted so that the right side looks the same as the wrong side. The quality is smooth, but sturdy, and has a perfect wearing ease. You usually sew jackets from it without lining, which are perfect for autumn and any transitional season. Due to its property, edges need not be neatened, the fabric does not fray and is comparable with fleece.

Garments sewn from fulled fabrics have got volume and stability, and look nice from both sides.

    Now I know the name for the fabric I bought to make the cape from the last Burda Magazine (short version)!

    I’m still trying to work out how I might make it reversible as my fabric is grey on one side and beige on the other! I’m thinking of edging with some kind of faux leather, and using flat felled seams. Which just leaves the issue of how to create the arm openings – move them slightly forwards onto the front section and do them using a large bound button hole technique maybe?

    Or do I just decide between grey and beige and make a standard lined version? Choices, choices! Any advice welcomed :)

      I ended up going for a standard version – I couldn’t figure out how to interface and face it so it would be sturdy enough, and have it reversible. Shame but it looks gorgeous as a grey cape (MUST post pics – I’m way behind!) so I’m not complaining – it’s kept me warm this week too!
