Wool melton is a thick, dense fabric with a soft brushed surface. This felted and brushed fabric is smooth and flat to the touch. Wool melton is tightly woven and the weave is not highly visible to the naked eye because of the felting process. Wool melton fabric is rarely made of 100% wool fibres. This substrate is often blended with rayon, polyester or acrylic.
Wash Care - Melton is a delicate fabric that requires a few extra precautions. Never machine wash your wool melton garments. Instead, dry clean them or carefully hand wash them in cold water with a gentle soap. But since wool melton is most often sewn up into outerwear, the fabric needs be cleaned rarely. Always use your wool (or a medium/cool) setting on your iron when pressing wool.
