Am starting to work on a Burda pattern for a casual jacket and one of the fabrics recommended is "Pulled Fabric" - this has me totally stumped - I know about pulling threads for a certain look or to make a fringe but obviously here it is meant a type of fabric - neither Sandra Betzina or Claire Schaeffer mention it in their books on various fabrics and between those two if it's not mentioned then???
Not rushing out to buy "Pulled Fabric" but if someone knows what this is would certainly like to know.

Is there a picture of this jacket? It may be a bad translation of a German term but we may be able to guess from a picture.

Hi Jean - It's Burda 8299 - obviously a double sided fabric is needed as double weave or quilted fabric with one side lined are the other options - and oops - reading this over it is not "Pulled Fabric" it is "Fulled fabric" but neither Claire or Sandra have this in their books so----

"Fulled" is another word for "felted". I think they may be talking about boiled wool.

I've read about "fulling" as a technique for thickening and softening wool. Perhaps they meant what we usually refer to as "boiled wool".

Clin,

I think fulled fabric is always fulled wool. Fulled wool is a method (usually hand done, I believe) where my grandmother used to take a woolen garment or sweater and 'full' it by raking it up and down a old fashioned washboard. It's goal is to "fluff up" the wool fibers to a desired look. I believe it's now done in a washing machine, but the washboard provided a more exacting 'finish point.'

Fulled wool is kind of a cousin of boiled wool and if you're reading a German pattern, I would guess they might be recommending boiled wool. I don't know whether fulled wool is available commercially.

HTH, Kate

Very interesting, Kate! I've heard of fulling but I've never heard of fulled wool before.

I am often amazed by the detailed knowledge of PR members and the generosity with which they share their knowledge. I have learned so much here

Perhaps one of our members will be able to translate the recommended fabrics from the envelope.

I'm not certain if this will help but I ran the French to English translation through babelfish.av.com (an automagic translator, use with caution):

Advised fabrics: pressed fabrics, fabrics matelassÚs with towards lining; C: two-sided fabric.

The German to English Translation is as follows:

Material recommendation: Milling materials, quilting materials with fodder Abseite; C: Doubleface.

The English language version (from the pattern info/Burda) is:

Recommended fabrics:
fulled fabrics, quilted fabrics with reversible lining; C: double-faced fabric.

I got the pattern info from :
