FashionFabric has this and I was wondering what is it? Does it itch? I love the color and can see using it. But alot of wool's make me itch and thats just not fun.

I don't think of tricotine as being itchy, but I have heard that it is fickle to work with because of the directional weave. Unfortunately, I am not speaking from direct experience but from what others have told me, so I hope you get some more opinions.

Hi pmarsh,

You could always line the garment!

On wool, it will keep the fabric from bagging, reduce wrinkles and extend the time between dry cleanings. (or washing, if you choose to do so.)

BTW, I highly recommend Bemberg rayon lining - so much more comfortable to wear, and it feels really good. (NAYY)

Regards,

Sophiecat

I believe tricotine is a double ridged variation of a twill weave. Should be a soft fabric. At least that is what it used to be. It's funny how some fabric type names have evolved to be something totally different. Boucle is a good example to me. When I hear boucle I think of a loopy woven wool, certainly not the polyester knit like some of the so called boucles are today.

The quality of any wool will affect its itchy factor. Crappy wools have more short fibers whose ends poke and itch. In contrast a top quality worsted wool, on first touch, can have you thinking it must be a superb cotton.

I just received a beautiful sample of red tricotine wool from Vogue Fabrics by mail swatch service. It's a lightweight, supple fabric that has slight texture, but it's not really scratchy. I agree that a lining made of Ambiance Bemberg rayon would be an excellent choice.

I don't think Wool Tricotine would make you itch. It is a hard finish wool with a diagonal twill, a pleasant texture making it suitable for pretty much year round wearing. Lining is always a plus and my favorite lining is silk.
