Say Hello to Heart of Huddersfield 2021 - The Jewels of Yorkshire!
Our brand new collection of Fabworks’ Exclusive Bespoke Wool Fabrics. Gorgeous, woollens made up ‘ere int’ mills by Yorkshire folk!
At first glance, these may look like simple mediumweight Melton fabrics, but take a closer look to see a wealth of weaving expertise is revealed. The lightly brushed yarns are closely woven in a complex herringbone weave, producing a fabric with excellent stability, reassuring drape and a cosy brushed, lightly textured appearance – in other words, a small basket weave.
These combined factors produce a lovely melange of tones, as the warp and weft yarns pass under and over. There is definitely a lot “more than meets the eye” in this subtly textured quality wool fabric.
The Jewels of Yorkshire are solid, bold-coloured fabrics, perfect for lifting your winter wardrobe! Designed to coordinate and complement the previous weaves of Heart of Huddersfield: Thistledown Marl, Herringbone, Marled Melton, Yorkshire Melton and Birdseye. When it comes to sewing, we have a whole host of fabulous suggestions for teaming the Jewels of Yorkshire with other coordinating HoH wools. We'll be bringing you a blog on this very soon!
Cobalt Admiral Ultramarine Blue takes its inspiration from the jewel tones of Ceylon Sapphires and rich Lapis hues.
Blue has always been one of the most popular colours. Our love affair with blue pervades the history of humanity. Beloved by the Egyptians, through the centuries, even to modernist artists like Yves Klein. By using the expensive Lapis shade, the Renaissance painters were indicating the importance and wealth of their patrons.
The colour ultramarine was literally a pigment made from Lapis Lazuli the semiprecious stone and mineral, mined in large nuggets which had to travel along the Silk Road, through the mountains of the Hindu Kush, to eventually reach the Mediterranean, where they were then traded as a commodity throughout Europe.
Blue is a spiritual colour, and we associate it with the sea and the sky and the vastness of the universe. Mother nature created these precious minerals and men have appreciated them ever since, attributing to their status and significance.
The jewel tones in this new collection are all complementary and will sit perfectly together should you choose to colour block them in complete outfits or mix and match with other fabrics from the existing HOH range.
The best way to get up close and personal with these beauties is to order a sample pack containing all 6 new colours from HOH 2021!
