The materialsThere are lots of reasons to love 100% wool. It’s strong, hypoallergenic and it happens to be insulating and breathable, so despite being thought of as a fabric only for cold months, it’ll keep you cool in summer too. It’s also naturally flame retardant and holds its shape well with minimal sagging, which makes it ideal for upholstery.
Flint is inspired by the colours of the British landscape and blends stone grey with earthy brown flecks. This mix complements almost any natural material or colour, especially wood, which dials up the warmth.
Doing the right thingPure wool is an easy to care for fabric that’s not only a renewable source, but it’s also biodegradable and has a long life cycle. This is proven by its high rub count score which means it can withstand plenty of wear and tear (this is the number of times the fabric can be rubbed before the abrasion begins to break the yarn).

We believe that returns should be easy, which is why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. And, you’ll also have 28 days to do so – just in case you need time to mull things over.
Care guideThis fabric is suitable for professional dry-clean only. If there are any marks on the fabric, we recommend that you gently blot them and avoid any harsh and abrasive scrubbing or cleaning products. If it’s a cushion, it should be turned over at least once a week to make sure the wear is evenly distributed, and it retains its shape.
Need to know
There can be some colour variation between different batches of our fabric – we try to make this as minimal as possible, but it’s something to be expected with natural fibres. If you’re using this fabric more than once in the same room, we recommend ordering as many metres as you need in one go –that way, we can make sure it’s all from the same batch.
A note on safety: if you’d like to use this fabric to upholster a piece of furniture yourself, then you should purchase an interliner (which you can find at upholstery and fabric shops) to go with it. This is also known as a barrier cloth which is used underneath the main fabric to ensure that the upholstered furnishing meets fire regulations. It won’t make the fabric completely fire retardant, but it will slow down a fire should it catch alight. Of course, if you order this or any of our fabrics on Neptune pre-upholstered pieces, we’ll also use the relevant interliner.
