Thunderbridge Storm - Marled Melton is an all wool melton fabric from the Valley Mist collection, one of our very special exclusive Heart of Huddersfield wools.
This 100% wool is created by weaving a natural and grey marled yarn on both the warp and weft. The fabric is then fulled (one of the processes used in creating melton) to give that felt-like finish. Each marled melton is then piece-dyed to its own unique colour, which emphasises the darker underlying grey fibres to create a multi tonal marled effect, hence the name: Marled Melton.
A cooler toned fabric with a reassuring warmth, Thunderbirdge Storm reminds us of the mist and the rain clouds with their grey hues (amazing colour saturation), and are inspired by the forever changing landscape of the Holme Valley and surrounding landmarks often clothed in mist and fog during, especially throughout past generations where the mills’ soot & smoke would colour the surrounding landscape. This closely woven, felted and brushed 100% wool has a versatile medium / heavy weight and a traditional wool feel that is lightly brushed with a cosy finish. Boasting a stable handle that drapes reassuringly, Thunderbridge Storm - Marled Melton is the perfect for keeping the elements out! A 100% wool fabric that will do as you tell it. Woollen fabrics of this kind are easy to sew and will stand the test of time.
