Brunhild is a wonderfully wholesome medium, neutral brown hue with hazel undertones. Brown is a comforting colour and conveys a feeling of trust and reliability, also conveyed as strong and fearless like its namesake a legendary female warrior. Perfect for casual attire and outdoor clothing with a country style.


This stroke-able, soft and velvety brown fine needlecord has approximately 16 wale (cords) per inch, making it superfine and an excellent alternative to velvet for accents on collars, pocket flaps etc often featured on country tweed like our Heart of Huddersfield for jackets and coats. Stable but with added elastane (widthwise) for a comfortable retentive stretch on close-fitting garments. This cotton and elastane fabric is breathable and hard-wearing, yet boasts a soft drape quality waiting to be gathered into feminine styles.

Garment Suggestions:

Corduroys in general are having quite a revival. Fashion often dictates our choices when dressmaking, whether you follow fashions to the book or loosely make a reference to them. We see corduroy fashions from the ’70s - ‘90s filtering down today's high street. Perfect for a cosy layer for outer clothing or comforting shirts and dresses come A/W

Favoured for classic styles such as country wear and children’s clothing because of its comfortable, hard-wearing and classic style, there are a host of things you will want to make from Brunhilda.

Make super comfy garments for you and yours, from baby's and toddler's dungarees and trousers (add some richly coloured cotton flannel to turn ups and cuffs on matching jackets), to grown-up and stylish pleat-fronted trousers, Pattern Stash - Cordelia Trousers, boiler suits and jumpsuits. 

Take advantage of the soft drape quality and make pretty, tiered dresses (prairie style) for your favourite little girls, and why not make a grown-up version too? Adding colourful embroidery, smocking or applique will create a #cottagecorestyle.

Need a quick fix? Add rows of multicoloured ricrac trim to cuffs and hemlines for a folk-style look. Fashion yourself seriously snug shirts, shirt dresses, pinafore dresses and gathered skirts - ideal for A/W.

 Other Uses:

Use your scraps for accessories; bags, hats, caps, neck warmers etc.
