Mill Soot is a superb all wool brushed melton fabric, from the Valley Mist collection, one of our very special exclusive Heart of Huddersfield wools.

Woven from a plain natural white yarn, felted, dyed and finished to this this classic black, epitomising the soot stained mills of the Holme Valley. This first-rate Yorkshire melton is inspired by how the landscape was forever changing, often clothed in a smog from the mills.

This closely woven and felted 100% wool has a versatile heavy weight, featuring a traditional wool feel with a pronounced brushed surface. Boasting a stable handle with a reassuring drape, Mill Soot is perfect for keeping the elements out, as wool is naturally weatherproof! This skilfully crafted fabric will do as it’s told. Our Yorkshire Meltons are easy to sew and will stand the test of time.

Dressmakers, Reenactors, Costumiers, Interior Designers, Craftspeople and all lovers of textiles will find a plethora of uses for this brushed Melton.

Dressmakers; this fabric is ideal for fashioning classic outerwear pieces and hard-wearing separates, these meltons will keep you especially warm and dry. Gilets and waistcoats are a great place to start. Choose a complimentary lining and create garments that will become perennial favourites. Once your sewing skills are more established, try classic jackets, coats and capes for a more rewarding project. This hard-wearing felted wool is ideal for field jackets and country style clothing too, as well as classic pea coats, duffle coats and oversized statement pieces.

Reenactors and Costumiers; take delight from the strong black within this 100% wool that is just perfect for creating hard-wearing outerwear. A traditional rugged woollen that will suit a variety of modern and historical styles.

Interior Designers; a wool featuring that typical rugged look will help you to create a range of cosy but quirky nature-toned soft furnishings. Cushions and throws will all look subtle yet striking in the home with that reassuring comfort factor that wool tends to invoke.

Craftspeople; appliquéd cushions, bag making, door stops, draught excluders, hats, caps, neck warmers, mittens & wrist-warmers, throws & blankets and much more. Whatever this fabric inspires you to do!

Itchy feeling

Not soft, a bit hard feel. Thinner than I expected for a coat.

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.

Properties & Detailing:

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.
