Why We Love Jade Check
Houndstooth is so hip it hurts. Celebrities like Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian, and Gwen Stefani have been spotted wearing the pattern in everything from scarves and dresses to boots and sunglasses.
Go beyond basic black and white with a Pendleton ivory/jade houndstooth. What can your imagination come up with? The crafty minds at the Woolen Mill Store have made a little girl's jacket, a purse, and an apron so far.
This fabric felts beautifully in the washing machine. It gets deliciously thick and fuzzy without losing the houndstooth pattern. Trim it with our felt binding (turquoise? cream? dark chocolate brown?) and you've got a fantastic throw.
Right now, Ivory/Jade Check is on sale for 50% off the regular price -- only $10 per yard. And there's lots of great fabric on our new $10 per yard table, but this one is our favorite!
