scabalsummit.JPGCloth manufacturers Scabal have just released what is possibly the world's most expensive fabric, at £1500 per metre. The superfine wool is processed in Huddersfield using artisan methods, and has been given the name 'Summit'. Scabal fabrics were used in the latest James Bond film, and have been used in Casino and Titanic. Scabal also produce fabric incorporating Lapis Lazuli, gold and diamonds, but I don't think we'll be seeing them on the high street anytime soon!
