This is a very black wool - with a nubby boucle surface texture. Beautiful quality - bought from Sawyer Brook fabrics. The selvage edge can be used as decorative fringe. This is a medium weight wool, suitable for skirts, jackets, or dress. it is very difficult to take a good pic.... So I've included a pic with lighter gray appearance to display the texture. However the fabric is jet black not gray at all. 57" wide. 2-1/8 yards.
