Vicuna JacketingExquisite luxury
Take a hike high into the Andean plains and you won’t have to cast your eye far before you catch sight of a vicuña. These doe-eyed, tawny coated creatures are cousins of the llama, pro-tected from the elements by a fleece so fine that the Incas considered it to be cloth of gold. Scabal’s vicuña jacketings collection includes six luxurious designs crafted from 100% vicuña: three bold checks and three classic herringbones.
This beautiful stone, prized for its intense blue colour, is incorporated in a luxurious Super 150’s quality suiting, weighing 280 grammes, which contains 2% cashmere. It is woven in Scabal’s own mill in West Yorkshire, England, and can be worn all year round. A unique and powerful cloth, Lapis Lazuli is available in 12 new designs, all of them solid blue or featuring blue decoration on blue background.
PanoramaInspired by twelve iconic buildings around the world
When you have teams, who travel all over the world it’s not surprising that their inspirations come from far afield. We started taking photos of interesting buildings with the idea of creating fabrics that take their inspiration from elements of the building in the picture capturing not just the building but that moment in time. From an original list of over 100, twelve have been selected as the starting point of this limited collection. Each photograph offered a different angle to take as inspiration. From the colours, materials and shapes of the structure, to external staircases, samurai steelwork and imaginative lighting designs, all have inspired and challenged the team at Scabal and the result is a collection of uniquely interesting designs. Presented in a specially constructed display box and delivered with a woven label showcasing the Scabal building icon. These twelve fabrics have been created at our own mill in Yorkshire, England. Each fabric is woven from the finest Super 120s wool with a dash of cashmere to give it a soft handfeel and an added touch of luxury.
SunrisePrecious & luxury suiting
Creative excellence and technical skill are combined in Sunrise, Scabal’s precious luxury suiting cloth for men of taste and distinction. Its supremely soft handle, deliciously light feel and exceptionally elegant shine are produced by the marriage of 50% Super 200’s wool and 50 % silk. The collection heralds the dawn of a new level of sophistication at the very top of the suitings market.

Proudly made in our own weaving mill in Huddersfield, from superior superfine merino wool from the Scabal Noble Wool Club, it boasts an elegant drape and wonderfully soft feel.
Diamond ChipSuper 150's and pure silk
The iconic Diamond Chip collection was the very first of our pioneering luxury fabrics to incorporate precious stones within the weave. By crushing pure diamonds into fragments, we are able to directly blend them into a Super 150’s wool and pure silk suiting at our heritage British mill. The result is a thread that shimmers in the light, giving garments a subtle luxurious glow, alongside a soft feel and drape.
Vicuna SuitingsA miraculously rare fibre
The fruits of nearly 500 years of such passionate dedication sit before you, but just like the noble Incas before us, we have selected only the very best Vicuña strands from Peru. Only 1/100 of the fibres available can be combed in the special way we require before they can be woven. This adds an even more exclusive element to such a miraculously rare fibre, and guarantees an unparalleled level of quality, not to mention luxury. Vicuña is also notoriously sensitive to chemical treatment, and our process is among a select few who have successfully dyed the natural material from its golden colour, making it more versatile. Available is a selection of 8 designs, each with their own unique and subtle distinctions.
