The suits in this option are created using Our Wool/Polyester Blend Fabric which has more colour options than pure wool. It is also a slightly heavier fabric than pure wool.
At Shane Ave we also offer pure wool suit options using Super S120 and Super S180 wool.
Super 120 (S120) is great for everyday wear, and Super 180 (S180) is perfect for special occasions. S180 is a denser and lighter weight fabric.
We can highly recommend any of these options for great suit quality and wear.
The S number on suit fabrics represents the number of times the wool has been twisted. As a general rule of thumb is the higher the number, the finer the cloth will be.
What is the difference between Super S120 and Super S180 Wool?
Both S120 and S180 use worsted medium weight wool yarn which is manufactured through a process that separates the long strong fibres from a bundle of wool and spins/twists them into the yarn used to make suiting material.
The S-number indicates the thickness of the fibre as defined in the IWTO Super S Code of Practice.
Each S-number correlates to a maximum fibre diameter measured in micrometers.
N.b. Fiber diameters are measured from the finished, dyed fabric.
