Introducing The Herringbones:
This gorgeous woollen tweed is one of twelve exclusive fabrics that form the new Heart of Huddersfield Collection for 2022. Hot off the looms and manufactured by Fabworks, from yarn through to weaving and finishing this bespoke beauty has been made in Yorkshire mills by Yorkshire folk! The HoH 2022 collection features two different coloured warps. Six of the twelve herringbones feature a soft misty grey warp, that form the Mist Herringbones. (The other six feature a dark stormy grey warp and form the Storm Herringbones.)

The overall tone of Mallard Mayhem - Storm Herringbone is teal with smart undertones. The signature storm dark warp adds a confident style, deep and thought-provoking. Add the jewel colour of Mallard Mayhem to your A/W wardrobe with this divine wool herringbone. Team with the cool and calming hues of Yorkshire Lavender or Squirrels’ Drey with its rust tones for the perfect combination of bespoke separates for an individual style.
Mallard Mayhem was inspired by the birds that live on the rivers and canals of West Yorkshire - those handsome Mallard ducks! The iridescent green plumage on their heads and necks catches the light when they create a commotion.
The rich, deep green weft and the grounding storm grey warp bring to mind the teal pop of a Mallard dabbling in dark waterways. This perfect combination of yarns and weave produce a classic herringbone. This new 2022 herringbone tweed is a nostalgic reminder of our original Rain On The River collection, drawing its inspiration from the aquatic side of nature - the plants, the animals and the climate that we see over in the gentle streams and flowing rivers.
Why not pair with our Thunderbridge Storm - Marled Melton.
The Herringbones are a collection of closely woven, versatile fabrics with a medium weight and a gentle woolly feel that boasts a stable handle and drape to be trusted to form pretty gathers. Perfect for a plethora of sewing room projects, the Mist & Storm Herringbones will always do as they are told. Wool of this kind is easy to sew and will stand the test of time.
Wool fabric has been used in garment manufacturing for generations. Did you know the first recorded piece of woollen clothing was produced over 10,000 years ago? These Yorkshire Tweeds are timeless classics, with their medium weight allowing for exceptional versatility in both clothing, craft and light soft furnishings.

This is a lovely, subtly coloured fabric that I plan to make a coat with. Ordering it couldn’t have been easier and the parcel arrived quickly.
When my fabric arrived (part of the birthday offer with free lining, etc) I was a little shocked that it was more green than teal, and I am wondering if I've been sent the wrong colour. Nevertheless, I will use it for a coat I am planning to make.
Another sample i ordered. Great colour and texture of fabric. Just what i was looking for. Material feels great.
Ordered another sample of Mallard Mayhem which is a check pattern and trying to decide betwwen the two.
Is it just me, or do dark teals rarely come to the surface? This fabric is the color of my dreams, so I just had to have it. It's a hefty herringbone, perfect for the cooler seasons. It was a breeze to work with. This is the third jacket that I've made as a student at The Tailoring Academy, and I'm thrilled with the result. As a bonus I have enough fabric left over to make a waistcoat in the future. Thank you Fabworks!
Gorgeous locally made woollen fabric. Have used several of the Heart of Huddersfield range to make mini beanbags for resting a book/iPad on for reading. Makes a really luxurious gift! In the process of making a memory bear with the scraps as I can’t bear to waste any!
