Fabric Types


Our most popular and affordable gown fabric. Lightweight, easily worn over clothing, comfortable in both humid and cool climates. Matt-finish for a smart, dignified look. 170gsm, selected by us for the perfect weight and drape of academic dress.

Wool/Poly Blend

Generally 70% wool and 30% polyester blend. Matt-finish for a smart, dignified look. Selected by us for the perfect weight and drape of academic dress. Blends can be heavier than our polyester or superfine wool depending on availability. Just ask us for assistance regarding wool/poly blend when placing your order.

Superfine Wool

A favorite for academics and professionals. A superior choice of fabric. Select 100% superfine 'cool' wool. Excellent breatheability and lightweight. Comfortable in all conditions. Feels wonderfully smooth and soft to the touch, drapes perfectly. Matt-finish for a smart, dignified look.

Be sure to follow the laundering instructions on the care label of your garment. 

Our garments come to you pressed and ready-to-wear with minimal creasing from freight. However, we do recommend hanging your garment when not in use and if required, gently iron or steam your robe. (Do not put an iron directly onto any satin lining or facing!)

Every George H Lilley Regalia gown comes with a complimentry robe bag. We recommend using this bag for storeage and travel. Allowing your garment to air regularly will assist to keep your gown in best condition.

Particular care is required if your garment has satin linings or facings. In this case, we recommend that your academic regalia is worn in ceremonies only. Avoid eating or drinking while wearing your regalia as the satin may stain. Take care when handling as pinning or your fingernails could damage the fabric.

If at any time you are not sure on the best of care for your garment then please contact us, the manufacturer, for advice.
