OUR MATERIALS

WOOL

There are many amazing qualities of wool that make it a very popular fabric for suits. For starters, it’s extremely water resistant. It’s also a wonderful insulator keeping the wearer warm and toasty in cold weather because the tiny insulating air spaces in wool fibres retain more heat. Unlike cotton which absorbs moisture and tends to remain wet, wool actually wicks perspiration and allows it to evaporate quickly thus keeping you warmer. Wool also has a wide comfort range which is very helpful for adapting to changing weather conditions.

These are not commonly available in South East Asia and we are delighted to offer them to our customers from all over the world at affordable prices.

ENGLISH WOOL

In English history, man used to milk the sheep for sustenance. When it shed its fleece, it could be spun and woven into cloth. Man soon realized that to kill a sheep for its meat alone was a waste of food and material and hence sheep shearing was cultivated. No other material can ever match 100% natural wool. All other fabrics fall short of the mark. When you visit our store, you will be delighted to find an impressive selection of the top brands in the world including Dormueil, Charles Carlton, Scabal, Holland & Sherry all imported directly from England.

BLENDED WOOL

Blended wool is a delicate mix of wool and polyester viscose. Polyester viscose is a form of rayon which is similar to other natural fibres such as linen or cotton. The fibre is processed using a wet spin technique. Blended wool has an advantage over low quality wool because the latter can irritate your skin but the former is significantly more comfortable to wear. Here at Canvas VII we have a large array of a mix of 50% all the way up to 98% blended wool in a variety of patterns and colours to suit your individual taste. Blended wool is commonly known for its low-maintenance and high durability,
