Artichoke Check - Yorkshire Tweed is a closely woven woollen fabric. It has a versatile medium weight and a traditional wool feel that boasts a stable handle that drapes reassuringly with the promise of cosy warmth. It’s the perfect fabric for a plethora of sewing room projects and it will always do as it’s told. Wool of this kind is easy to sew and will stand the test of time.  

A pleasing grey melange yarn forms the warp of this superb tweed and is intersected by fresh natural white stripes (forming the verticals of the check). Expertly blended glaucous (blue-green) yarns, the colour of statuesque artichoke plants, form the weft and have intersecting stripes of natural white with grey accents (to form the horizontals of the check). The combination of gentle natural hues in this cleverly woven check draw the eye to the fine detail of the subtle herringbone design. Calming and easy on the eye, the overall tones bring to mind those architectural giants of the vegetable patch - artichokes with their spiky foliage of silvery blue-green.

Artichoke Check - Yorkshire Tweed is perfect for fashioning classic outerwear and hard-wearing separates. Start with simple and stylish pencil skirts, A-line skirts and waistcoats, choose a complementary quality lining and you’ll have garments that will soon become perennial favourites. Shift dresses and pinafore dresses are super comfy and make classic key pieces. When your sewing skills are more established, try classic jackets, coats and capes.

Beautiful fabric

I bought this 100% wooden tweed fabric to make a jacket. I used the Sew over it Francine jacket pattern which I had used before so I knew it would fit.. the fabric was a joy to work with and I am over the moon with the nearly finished item. Just got the buttons and button holes to do. One thing I wished I had of done though is to use either velvet or corduroy for the under collar as the wool is a bit scratchy on the back of my neck. The rest of the jacket is fully lined so this isn’t a problem anywhere else and I am happy to put up with it as it is so nice! Really please with my pattern matching too!

Introducing

Fabworks Yorkshire Tweeds

Our Yorkshire Tweed fabrics are created by the same team of expert craftsmen that produce our exclusive HoH Collection. From yarn through to weaving and finishing, these beauties are made int' Yorkshire mills by Yorkshire folk!

Origins:

Made in Yorkshire mills by Yorkshire folk! This is one of Fabworks’ famous Yorkshire-made pure wool fabrics, constructed using surplus yarns that have been recycled & repurposed to create limited runs of exquisite quality classic tweed styles. Locally manufactured within an 8-mile radius of Fabworks, UK-spun wool yarns sourced from across the country are put into weave at some of world’s most renowned tweed mills, located in Huddersfield (West Yorkshire, England, UK). The heritage and quality of these items represents classic British manufacturing, in the heart of The Heavy Woollen District of West Yorkshire, renowned for its expertise in wool textiles manufacture.

These are all bespoke one-off pieces that are only available at Fabworks, conjuring heritage, sentiment and locale into the curation of classy colour palettes with a colourful and eco-friendly sustainable twist.

Featuring a range of different weaves, weights and finishes, you will find herringbones, twills, tartans, block checks, birdseyes, jacquards, houndstooths & other special weaves. You may even spot some completely unique weaves in this collection, where along with our manufacturer, we have been able to create brand new & completely niche weave patterns. The weavers who produce these beautiful cloths are experts in their field, operating a small family-run setup, just like our Fabworks family, offering completely unique one-off limited runs.
