A Beautiful Find

 When the fabric was unravelled a small tag attached to the end of the bolt said 'x-Chanel'.



Not enough for a jacket but perfect for a cape.

  5. I found the fabric in my local fabric shop. The bolt was stacked in with all the wools of similar colour and it wasn't until the assistant unrolled the fabric to give it to me did we see the tag. We were both surprised but it was quite obvious just by look and touch that it was a special piece of fabric. It is the softest wool and cashmere in the most beautiful colours of red, green and mustard with a light blue thread running through it. The weave is very loose...and the cape is nearly finished!
