Wool is such a great fabric - nothing gives warmth like it - why don't clothing manufacturers ever seem to use it any more? I'm in love with wool for autumn and winter wear, since I hate bulky layers which make me look like a heffalump, and with wool you can get away with quite lightweight fabrics and still be warm. I have three gorgeous wool dresses in my wardrobe, in burgundy, Persian blue and forest green. To add to these I'm planning to sew a red wool jumper dress, and if that goes well probably a plaid jumper dress from the same pattern. And so many more - I'd love to make up a true forties dress in wool like one of the ones below (the angora styles from 1940 look especially cosy).
