Colour:

Spring Song - Luxury Yorkshire Herringbone Tweed is created by placing closely packed warp yarns (in a subtle melange colourway) consisting of a blue/grey (warp) base with natural loden green, and very subtle warm brown-heather touches. The melange yarns used in these medium/large herringbone tweeds are so nature-inspired that mother nature is truly reflected in their palette. Creating the feature/contrast chevrons for the herringbone, the most uplifting springtime thrushes egg blue-toned yarn is placed across the weft. Imagine a clutch of these beautiful aqua blue-toned eggs, lightly speckled with subtle brown spots, sitting carefully in a soft brown nest. These precious eggs are the song of springtime. The combination of yarns makes for a classic medium/large herringbone of happy spring pastel hues. This fabric is the colour of Easter treats and all things sweet!

Properties:

Spring Song is extra soft with a malleable, lightly brushed, cosy and comforting feel, and not your usual country tweed. Stable yet extra soft & with a heavier more supple drapey hand than our other Yorkshire Tweed fabrics, this luxurious tweed is perfect for a multitude of uses. Place this next to your skin and be cossetted by the superior quality yarns and expert weaving techniques of Yorkshire's finest.

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.
