Reach for the Stars - Jacquard Yorkshire Tweed is a gorgeous all-wool tweed. Manufactured in Huddersfield undergoing the same processes as our exclusive Heart of Huddersfield range. If you love our quality Yorkshire Tweeds plus distinct designer style, then this double-faced jacquard is for you.
A combination of classic mid and dark grey wool yarns are cleverly jacquard woven together to create this distinct designer style fabric, which features a neat design of aligned stars. The dual-sided construction creates a fabric that is closely woven, stable and strong, with a traditional wool feel (lightly felted-excellent medium coat weight).
Reach for the Stars boasts a stable handle width and length-wise and has a reassuringly soft and cosy drape quality. Both sides of this fabulous fabric are superb, all you have to do is decide which side you want to show off. You can make reversible garments and have the benefit of both, or garments with contrasting panels, pockets, collars, etc.
Ideal styles to make are simple unlined coatigans and cocoon coats, poncho's and capes. Classic overcoats and pea coats will have a designer edge when made in this first-rate designer fabric. Use both sides and have contrasting panels or collar and cuff details. This grown-up designer fabric will make super cute children's duffle coats and is totally unisex!
Use all your leftover scraps for accessories such as hats, caps and bags. Messenger-style bags are easy to make and are fabulous presents too!

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!
