This fabric is reduced as the fabric has a faint whitish dye flaw line in the middle of the fabric that runs parallel to the selvage. It is roughly in the middle of the width. See the 2 photos with the ruler- the line is to the left of the ruler in the photo.
Why Polypropylene and merino blended together:
1. The fabric gives warmth without weight
2. Moisture is moved away from the skin with the white honeycomb side.
3. Polypropylene retains heat longer for better comfort. The fabric has the sportwear backing which is designed to have maximum air trapped next-to-skin in the wool layer of the fabric meaning higher levels of warmth, moisture can then travel through the merino to the polypropylene surface where it is evaporated out of the fabrics structure without giving the wearer the feeling of 'clamminess'.
4. Mould, bacteria and mildew cannot grow on polypropylene and merino has in itself natural odour repellant behaviour meaning product can be worn for long periods of time and will not smell.

Use for smaller items like scarves, beanies, neck warmers if you don't want the line to show as the flaw will be hidden in the drape. If using for a garment then line may be visible.
