Evoking memories of walks in the Yorkshire countryside; rambling heaths with sun dried grasses and craggy outcrops filled with bilberries.

Start with simple and stylish pencil skirts, A-line skirts and waistcoats, choose a complementary quality lining and you’ll have garments that will soon become perennial favourites. Shift dresses and pinafore dresses are super comfy and make classic key pieces. When your sewing skills are more established, try classic jackets, coats and capes. Add multi toned horn-type buttons to your makes, picking out the tones of green and brown for an individual style.

Reenactors and Costumiers: The natural tones in this fabric are ideal for a range of historical garments from capes and tunics to trousers and over dresses. There's something very Sherlock Holmes & Dr Watson in style to this fabric - perfect for Steampunk costumes!

Our Yorkshire Tweed fabrics are created by the same team of expert craftsmen that produce our exclusive HoH Collection. From yarn through to weaving and finishing, these beauties are made int' Yorkshire mills by Yorkshire folk!

Origins:

Made in Yorkshire mills by Yorkshire folk! This is one of Fabworks’ famous Yorkshire-made pure wool fabrics, constructed using surplus yarns that have been recycled & repurposed to create limited runs of exquisite quality classic tweed styles. Locally manufactured within an 8-mile radius of Fabworks, UK-spun wool yarns sourced from across the country are put into weave at some of world’s most renowned tweed mills, located in Huddersfield (West Yorkshire, England, UK). The heritage and quality of these items represents classic British manufacturing, in the heart of The Heavy Woollen District of West Yorkshire, renowned for its expertise in wool textiles manufacture.

These are all bespoke one-off pieces that are only available at Fabworks, conjuring heritage, sentiment and locale into the curation of classy colour palettes with a colourful and eco-friendly sustainable twist.
