SAVILE Super Premium Italian Hymo Canvas, Medium Heavy Weight, 27" Wide
- $17.95 / Yard
Savile is one of the very highest quality medium to heavy weight hymos available in the world. It's hand is incredibly gentle and beautiful. It is used to make bespoke suit chest fronts for jackets, vests, and overcoats. Made in Italy from wool and a rayon/viscose blend yarn. 27.5" (70cm) wide.
Each bolt of this fabric has been individually washed in cold water and then hung to dry under the Italian sun. (This is not an automated system. On a supplier visit, we observed that it is done by hand on dry, sunny days, in the way that linens were washed for hundreds of years.) This extra step helps the fabric with preshrinking.
This hymo 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 like a cigar 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 fabric will stay beautiful for years.
This fabric is included in our Interlining Sample Book.
