This wonderful, traditional, rustic country tweed was woven in West Yorkshire by a world renowned company. The combination of skill, heritage and use of first rate all wool melange yarns has produced a classic woollen fabric which will never date.
Rambling Heath - Subtle Windowpane Check Tweed is woven from alternating melange yarns of charcoal grey and natural golden straw hues. The addition of a windowpane check in subtle dark bilberry-purple yarn adds interest and warmth to this natural country palette. Evoking memories of walks in the Yorkshire countryside; rambling heaths with sun dried grasses and craggy outcrops filled with bilberries.

Why choose wool fabric? Benefits of sewing with Wool! 🐑
We love wonderful wool! Why? Because it looks beautiful, well yes but did you know wool has a series of superpowers that make it the most incredible natural fibre, suitable for more garment suggestions and sewing inspiration than possibly any other?
Wool has a unique naturally crimped 3D structure which attributes to some brilliant properties & makes it a great fabric to wear throughout all the seasons.
Naturally Breathable: This amazing 3D crimped structure promotes air circulation allowing air to pass through the fabric, allowing for circulation and ventilation for your skin to breathe, keeping you cool.
Shower Resistant: Sheep naturally produce a waxy substance called lanolin. As sheep live outdoors, this naturally occurring wax helps to protect sheep from the elements, naturally shedding water & keeping them dry. This same property is retained within the wool fibres when spun into yarn.
Moisture Absorbing: The moisture-retentive superpowers of wool! It’s hydrophilic core gives wool the ability to wick away moisture keeping you dry and comfortable – this possibly one of our favourite properties because you can stay fresh when wearing wool, from autumn right through to spring!
