This gorgeous wool came to Fiddlehead's via a trip to a New York City Jobber.
A Jobber purchases large quantities of deadstock from mills and then sells them wholesale in smaller quantities. Because of this set up, some information like the fabric's origin or its exact fiber content is not readily available. At Fiddlehead's we take the information the Jobber is able to provide and then do our own tests in the shop. We take our time comparing the fabric to other well understood fabrics in the shop in addition to conducting a burn test. All fibers have their own unique smell, smoke, ash, burning style, and burn residue which makes a burn test fairly helpful in determining a fabric's fiber content.
Using the above mentioned methods Fiddlehead's does its best to accurately reflect the quality and fiber content of all deadstock fabrics carried in the shop. If you have any questions don't hesitate to call or email the shop about this special fabrics.
