Our new Donegal Herringbone Tweeds are a timeless range of six gorgeous, 100% wool fabrics, new for 2022. They boast the same subtle warp yarn which is created by blending predominantly light grey fibres with multi tones of watery blue, green, pink, heather and pops of earthy red as subtle as a delicately painted watercolour - inspired by the Yorkshire countryside which has historically provided the ideal conditions for woollen fabric production.

This Wedded Bliss is a heritage design, (named because the rows of chevrons look like herrings' bones) and natural yarn combination has a classic & 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:

Wedded Bliss is woven with the signature grey/watercolour melange, warp yarn alongside a contrasting weft of Whitby Jet black Donegal yarn flecked with the signature 'neps' in happy and bright celebratory primary and secondary colours. The combinations of yarns produce a stylish contrast defining this timeless design which is truly a match made in heaven, evoking memories of happy couples standing proudly on the soot-stained steps of the town hall whilst being showered in colourful confetti. Black and grey are classic hues, always smart and the addition of happy Donegal flecks provides countless opportunities to pick out accent colours.

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

Beautiful fabric

I bought this beautiful tweed to make a waistcoat/gilet for my husband as a Christmas present. I have loved working with it and the way different colours light up within the fabric as you get closer to it.

Introducing

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.
