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!
Miraculous Magenta is a powerful purple, softened by pink and blue - raise the spirits and mix the jewel tones of Pink Tourmaline and Magenta Ruby.
Miraculous Magenta reminds us of all those exuberant cottage garden flowers - remember our Weavers Garden Collection? Where stems burst into bloom like natural fireworks leaping from the flower beds. This life-giving magenta hue is the colour of elegant Foxgloves, Sweet Summer Phlox and pretty Granny’s Bonnet - Columbines.
Raise your spirits with Miraculous Magenta. Anyone who craves individuality will use the bold colours as the perfect antidote to the dreary days of A/W. This standout is for those who are “cut from a different cloth”. Stand up, stand out, be seen and most of all enjoy!
Purple hues are often associated with the shocking pink of the eighty’s fashions, but our Miraculous Magenta goes much further back in time, think Imperial Rome!
We could have just called it Fuchsia. Named after the 16th-century German Botanist Leonhart Fuchs who drew special attention to the genus of Fuchsia and where the colour and eventually the dye Fuchsine takes its name.
Team with Forever Green Emerald for a marriage made in a cottage garden or bring out those blue tones by sitting alongside Tarnside Teal and Uber Ultramarine. Team with the existing HOH fabrics, Buddleia Purple - Lavender Sachet, Yorkshire Sunset-Thistledown Marls and Grapevine Herringbone for a truly pink/purple-hued complementary palette.
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!
