Rhubarb Pie - Birdseye is an all wool birdseye weave from the Summer Wine collection, one of our very special exclusive Heart of Huddersfield wools.

There are five sumptuous yarns that make up this gorgeous birdseye weave. Pale marled grey, charcoal and natural white yarns sit together to form the warp, which appears consistently throughout all the Heart of Huddersfield birdseye fabrics. This is like the fabric’s base layer or it’s foundation – hover over the photographs for a close-up of this colour detailing. The weft yarns are the bespoke colours that bring the fabric to life, unique to each colourway. The weft of Rhubarb Pie features two delicious multi tonal yarns; one a pale rhubarb pink-rust tone with hints of golden ginger, the other a multi tonal rich biscuit beige. Combining these five yarns creates mesmerising depth within this complex and unique weave.

This mouth-watering wool tweed is inspired by Yorkshire family traditions and values, translated into fabric form. A palette of soft fruity pink and beige tones with highlights of natural white bring about thoughts of simpler times during the cold autumnal evenings with the delicious rhubarb pie sitting on kitchen side, fresh from the oven. Match this stunning 100% wool with other fabrics from the Summer Wine collection for a complementary palette bubbling with gorgeous pinky browns.

This closely woven woollen has a versatile medium weight and a traditional wool feel, without being rough or itchy. Boasting a stable handle and reassuring drape, Rhubarb Pie is perfect for a plethora of sewing room projects. An intricately woven fabric that will do as you tell it. Woollen fabrics of this kind are easy to sew and will stand the test of time.

Yummy Rhubarb Pie!

Being born close to the famous, Yorkshire rhubarb triangle, I've always loved the edible version of rhubarb pie, but this wonderful fabric is a whole new experience! I only bought a small piece to make up into a coat for a doll that belonged to my great grandmother but I'm now looking for the perfect skirt pattern with the intention of buying more rhubarb pie to make it in. It is beautiful, would team well with a wide range of separates and fine, but warm to handle.
