Osprey (Magenta Check) Yorkshire Herringbone is a superb 100% all wool Herringbone fabric. Manufactured in Huddersfield undergoing the same processes in the same mills as our exclusive Heart of Huddersfield range. This fabric is not one of Fabworks' own exclusive designs.
Osprey is a first-rate natural palette, all wool fabric with a pop of magenta for added style. Its wonderful palette of wholesome hues combines weft yarns of warm beige, the colour of its namesakes' breast feathers, woven using a classic herringbone weave throughout the same oatmeal warp, (creating multi-tones throughout the whole plaid). The subtle horizontal over stripes of natural white (and of course the magnificent magenta check) accentuate this 100% wool creating points of interest and the opportunity to use accent colours to coordinate with plain fabrics.
This close herringbone weave has a versatile medium weight and has the feel of a traditional, lightly brushed and barely felted, wool tweed. It drapes reassuringly and creates the perfect fabric for a plethora of sewing room projects. This skillfully crafted fabric will always ‘do as it’s told’. The wool fabric of this kind is easy to sew and will last for years.
Use Osprey to create the basis of your own nature-inspired, soft palette theme for your wardrobe or home. Choose complimentary fabrics, such as the Yorkshire Meltons, Marled Meltons and Thistledown Marls from the Heart of Huddersfield range to break up the plaid or showcase it as you choose. Natural country-style interiors are always a classic. Create understated chic styles by fashioning your own bespoke designs using this special Yorkshire Tweed and you will certainly have Natural Charm.
