Colour:

This sublime fabric Damson Delight is woven from a superb combination of yarns. A grounding warp of soft melange tones combines grey, flecked with natural rust, beige, brown and blue sitting solidly like the rugged dry-stone walls of our Yorkshire landscape coloured by nature and the passage of time. This subtly warming toned warp carries the weft yarn of the most delicious damson purple - hue, rich like the sweet sticky juice of a damson crumble, fresh from the oven on a cold autumn day. This perfect combination of grounding and statement hues is showcased in heavier gauge yarns, woven into large-scale chevrons of the herringbone weave. This subtle colour combination is a match made in heaven and will add a wholesome and natural warmth that’s not only visual but  tactile too!

Properties:

Damson Delight is a closely woven woollen fabric. It has a versatile medium/heavyweight and traditional wool feel that’s soft and lustrous too and 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 - it will always do as it’s told. Wool of this kind is easy to sew and will stand the test of time. All lovers of textiles will find a plethora of uses for this first-rate chunky herringbone, taking you through A/W and perfectly into early Spring.

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.
