Introducing The Crosshatch Chronicles
6 gorgeous 100% wool tweeds Best Block Checks, together form The Crosshatch Chronicles, the latest addition to Fabworks’ very own Heart of Huddersfield range. Hot off the looms and manufactured by Fabworks, from sourcing yarn through to weaving and finishing, this bespoke beauty has been made in Yorkshire mills by Yorkshire folk!
Designed to sit alongside existing collections, allowing for the curation of a sustainable capsule wardrobe where legacy Heart of Huddersfield pieces can mix & match and interchange perfectly with The Crosshatch Chronicles, refreshing the look as the seasons change, with bespoke woollen pieces that take us from late summer through to early spring.
A grounding pebble grey yarn features throughout The Crosshatch Chronicles collection adding subtle tonality, a recurrent theme that appears throughout The Crosshatch Chronicles collection. Woven in a traditional twill weave using a selection of sustainably sourced deadstock yarns of 16 skein.
Block checks are great for adding more colour to stand-alone pieces. A carefully curated pattern repeat that is bold enough to make a statement but not too much to cause a problem. Use colour-rich designs to create straight lines and unorthodox uniform styles, or use on the bias to create interesting details and slimming illusions.
