Introduction:

Thunderbridge Storm - Marled Melton is a new addition, all-wool melton fabric, we have managed to get our hands on it in a limited amount. Named of course after its predecessor from the Valley Mist collection, one of our very special exclusive Heart of Huddersfield wool range.

Created by exactly the same traditional techniques from a slightly softer yarn, we are sure there is more lambswool in this yarn, producing a softer feel and slightly lighter weight, but with the same versatile marled grey melange we know everyone loved. 

Colour:

Thunderbridge Storm is 100% wool is created by weaving a natural and grey marled yarn on both the warp and weft. The fabric is then fulled, one of the processes used in creating melton, to give that felt-like finish. Each marled melton is then piece-dyed to its own unique colour, which emphasises the darker underlying grey fibres to create a multi-tonal marled effect, hence the name: Marled Melton.

Properties:

A cooler toned fabric with a reassuring warmth, Thunderbridge Storm reminds us of the mist and the rain clouds with their grey hues (amazing colour saturation), and are inspired by the forever changing landscape of the Holme Valley and surrounding landmarks often clothed in mist and fog during, especially throughout past generations where the mills’ soot & smoke would colour the surrounding landscape.

This closely woven, felted and brushed 100% wool has a versatile medium/heavyweight and traditional wool feel that is lightly brushed with a cosy finish. Boasting a stable handle that drapes reassuringly, Thunderbridge Storm is perfect for keeping the elements out! A 100% wool fabric that will do as you tell it. Woollen fabrics of this kind are easy to sew and will stand the test of time.

Smart wool

I’m not going to lie, I was disappointed when this fabric was not as thick as I hoped BUT nevertheless it is a beautiful, very firmly woven, hard wearing wool in a true-to-the-photo colour which will drape nicely and make a gorgeous coat (skills of the sewist permitting!).

I’m not experienced in buying coating fabric and now I know that what I was after is not this weight, but it will be lighter to handle & sew and be generally an easier make for someone who has never made a coat before!

Also I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised by the beautiful free lining added to my order, along with the coordinating scarf & many other invaluable ’goodies’ as part of Fabworks’ birthday celebrations.

Fulfilment of my order was very speedy and once again I’m most impressed by the service I have received.

Lovely Wool

I made a hacked Joe Coat by Ready to Wear from this fabric. It was easy to work with and has a good weight for coats. It pressed well and was easy to sew. There was a light hint of sheep when it was pressed (as is normal), but the scent didn't linger once the fabric cooled. The colour is great and I think it will match everything. I would recommend using their thread matching service. I didn't and struggled to colour match the thread online, rookie mistake.
