This Moorland Mystery is a heritage design, named because the rows of chevrons look like herrings' bones and natural yarn combination has a classic and smart look and sturdy feel. Smart and confident as the millstone buildings of mill towns, this fabric will create garments sure to stand the test of time. 

Colour:

Moorland Mystery is woven with the signature warp sitting alongside a fabulous weft yarn of rich earthy brown Donegal yarn flecked with the signature 'neps' in rich red ochre-brown and sun-ripened golden wheat. This nature-inspired mixture of the two yarns produces subtle definitions to the herringbone design.

The myriad of subtleties in this easy-on-the-eye fabric evokes fleeting glimpses of plump moorland grouse (with their clever camouflage plumage) hiding in the undergrowth. Look closely and you may even spot the red stripe above Mr Grouses' eye. This warm natural tone will sit with a myriad of colours and hues. If you think brown is boring then look into the hidden depths of this stunner and prepare to be captivated.

Properties:

Moorland Mystery has a sturdy and stable handle with a traditional, yet soft, country woollen feel. Wool fabrics will naturally regulate the temperature of the wearer and protect from the outside elements. Naturally water-repellent, this fabric will also keep you dry as well as warm.
