Colour:

Robin - Birdseye Yorkshire Tweed is a stunning wool tweed brings to mind those sweet garden birds with their vivid red, brown and grey plumage. The rounded birdseye weave echoes the sweet rounded bodies and cheeky bright eyes. Calming and easy on the eye. If you love the rich tones of this stunning 100% wool, match it with other rich and earthy-toned tweeds for a complementary palette.

Properties:

Three sumptuous yarns make up this gorgeous birdseye weave. Pale-marled grey and rich earthy brown sit together to form the warp. The warp is like the fabric’s base layer or the foundation, hover over the photographs for a close-up of this colour detailing. The alternating weft yarns of rich red and earthy brown bring the fabric to life. The combined colours of this rich and warming fabric create mesmerising depth within this complex and unique weave, inspired by the tenacious and often loudly territorial symbol of springtime, hope and renewal - The Robin Redbreast!

This closely woven woollen has a versatile medium weight and a traditional wool feel, without being rough or itchy. Boasting a stable handle and reassuring drape. Robin is perfect for a plethora of sewing room projects. An intricately woven fabric that will do as you tell it. Woollen fabrics of this kind are easy to sew and will stand the test of time too.

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.
