Remo is one of the very highest quality medium weight hymos available in the world. It is used to make bespoke suit chest fronts for jackets, vests, and overcoats. Made in Italy from 50% pure wool, and 50% viscose/rayon. 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 a 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.
It is also Balanced, which means that when it is woven, all the cross-wise fibers are laid in a single direction, instead of shuttling back and forth. Most fabrics will curl up when subjected to heat and pressure, but because of the unusual and time-intensive weaving process of Balancing, this one will remain in it's desired shape even under extreme stress. Coat fronts made with balanced hymo (such as our Remo, Savile and Cleo) will stay beautiful for years and years.
