FAQ: What Are Greige Goods?

Wool goes through a lot of transformation in the journey from sheep to fabric. One of the stages in that transformation is known as greige goods.

First things first: the word is pronounced like the color grey.

Greige goods are unfinished fabrics, fresh off the loom. You could also call it "raw fabric", because it has not gone through the finishing process. In many cases, greige goods have not been dyed.

The Woolen Mill Store now carries a variety of greige 100% wool fabrics that are ready for your creations. Wash them, felt them, dye them... the sky's the limit.
