Cleo is premium quality heavy weight hymo canvas. It is ideal inside overcoats and double-breasted jackets. Made in Italy from cotton, a blended rayon/viscose yarn, and goat hair. 59" (150cm) wide.
Cleo is 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 like a cigar when subjected to heat and pressure, but because of the unusual and time-intensive weaving process of Balancing, Cleo will remain in it's desired shape even under extreme stress. Coat fronts made with balanced fabrics will stay beautiful for years and years.
This fabric is included in our Interlining Sample Book.
