Shopping for Boiled Wool

Shopping for Boiled Wool


We love boiled wool! Our Mallee Jacket was designed specifically with boiled wool in mind, but you can also use it with any of our other outer layers.

Boiled wool can be tricky to find, as it's often kept in stock by fabric stores only seasonally. If you're looking for boiled wool, below are some places to shop depending on where in the world you are, which we're updating as of March 2022!

Weft and Warp in Canberra, Australia just got some boiled wool in too. I was very excited to see it there today! And thrilled you have a good jacket pattern to use it with when I’m ready.


Hi Judy! My friend who is a vegan sewer made a boiled vegan wool coat out of some heavy bamboo felt. It cost an arm and a leg per meter but she said it was super warm.


Great question Judy- Unfortunately boiled wool is a pretty special fabric with some great qualities.

Have you seen these Mallee Jackets from Gillian?

Question: Is there a suitable substitute for boiled wool?
I love the look of the Mallee jacket and of boiled wool in general for so many things, but I’m highly allergic to lanolin and wool (trust me – this problem really sucks). I have yet to find something that makes a good substitute (other than cheap poly fleece). fingers crossed that you have some good ideas.
