the processing of boiled wool materials

Walk material does not fray which is thanks to the simple and unconventional method of processing it. This is why the cutting line can be left open. There is no need to zig zag the hem. Always sew with a small zig zag stitch in order to leave some elasticity to the seam. A band or a support has to be sewn in the shoulder and back neck to prevent the seams from pulling. In case the seam is sewn down, only afterwards cut back the fabric to the seam. Whenever possible trim back one side to about 5mm.

Creative clasp possibilities, like this loop, are quickly carried out

The cut out pockets are a great success. No extra sticking support is needed as the material does not fringe.
