Giove is one of the very highest quality medium weight hymos available in the world. It's used for bespoke suit chest fronts in jackets, vests, and overcoats. Made in Italy from a pure, fine wool and a viscose/wool blend yarn, it has a gentle, beautiful hand. 27.5" (70cm) wide.
Each bolt of this fabric has been individually washed in cold water and then hung to dry under the Northern Italian sun. (This is not an automated system. On our visit to the manufacturer, we observed that it is done by hand on dry, sunny days, in much the same way that linens were washed for hundreds of years.) This extra step helps to ensure that the fabric won't shrink.
