September 22, 2006 - There has been a buzz about a new men?s woolen suit that is machine washable. Now the classic woman?s suit is also washable. Quality women?s suiting has always been dry clean only, until now. There?s a new, patented fabric technology that will save women time and money!
?It?s a wool blend,? says Avra Myers from The Limited. ?The fabric has been specially constructed so that you can wash it, you can tumble dry it and it is wrinkle free. You can wear it and wash it many times and it holds it shape.?
In additional to normal machine washing, instead of the old drip-dry polyester, you can throw these in the dryer. Washed at home and still holding its shape and style. The Wool Record Weekly
also reported the return of the English Woolen Look ? such as tweeds, Donegals and Shetlands ? in ladies? wear and men?s wear is the big story at Premiere Vision, in Paris. Interest is high in all key markets. One British weaver has been receiving 100 customers a day. The show of fabrics for autumn/winter 2007/2008 follows the upbeat mood at Milano Unica last week.
