Is this a good quality fabric to have a suit tailor-made from?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I am so sorry to have to start a new thread..... for the third time!!!!

 

I am seeking advice on whether a particular fabric is a good quality fabric to have a suit tailor-made from.

 

The link I pasted in the previous thread does not work so I will have to write the description of the fabric.

 

The fabric is described as follows:

 

 

Description:  Luxury Worsted Navy with Royal Blue Pin

 

Weight:  300 grams / 10 oz

 

Composition: 3 Ply Luxury Merino Wool & Cashmere

 

Price: US $29.99 Per Meter

 

 

Thanks again for your patience and opinions!!!

We'd really need to see a photo of the fabric and details of the mill/merchant.

Mid weight, fairly standard business design, may be less hardy depending on the percentage of cashmere, and 3 ply is good. But I'm suspicious of the price. Seems to good to be good.

There's no possible way of knowing without seeing/feeling the fabric...

*** Update ***

 

I have found out that the material is 98 percent 3-Ply Merino wool and 2 percent Cashmere. Does anyone know how much less hardy this amount of Cashmere would make the fabric?

 

Thanks again for your input.

2% cashmere... sounds like they just put it in so they can say "& cashmere" on the label... is 2% really going to make any noticable difference?

I have to be honest and say that I have absolutely no idea if 2 percent cashmere makes any difference or not to a fabric.

 

This is the first time I have gone down the road of buying fabric and having a suit tailored!

 

Perhaps someone can advise what level of cashmere would typically be included in a wool/cashmere fabric mix?
