Liberty Lantana?

    Hi ladies, in a fit of emotional shopping I bought a piece of Lantana (an 80% cotton, 20% wool mix) to make a winter blouse for my daughter. I honestly cannot tell any difference between this and their lawn, though. Has anybody bought this before? Any thoughts, are they really very similar in feel? Any other way I could verify the fiber content?

    I have a piece of wool/cotton it is fine but not as fine as the lawn,it also feels a wee bit ‘fuzzy’ to touch.

    Its weight is more ‘winter weight’ cotton and it has a fine ’twill’ finish.

    Mine is an older piece but came with a Liberty of London swing tag attached so I am fairly sure it is original.

    Thank you, my dear! I will examine it more closely and look for the twill finish.

    That’s so helpful, thank you. I am pretty sure what I have is not the lantana. I have been trying to post a photo to flickr but am having upload problems. If I get it up, I’ll shoot you a link, thank you so much!
