Foothills - Harris Herringbone is an all wool herringbone tweed fabric from our very special Heart of Huddersfield range, part of the Valley Mist collection. Woven from Harris yarns, this natural and charcoal toned woollen has a strong, hard-wearing marled charcoal warp yarn and a marvellous melange of alternating weft yarns in palest grey and natural white with sandstone that create a subtle contrast for the herringbone design and give an overall mid grey-beige tone.
The blend of coloured fibres within Foothills’ yarns produce a slightly obscured and hazy look to the small herringbone weave that is full of natural tones, like foothills shrouded in mist.
This closely woven woollen has a versatile light / medium weight with a traditional country wool tweed feel. Boasting a stable handle and reassuring drape, Foothills - Harris Herringbone is ideal for all lovers of textiles, natural fibres and especially fabric connoisseurs. This skilfully crafted fabric will ‘do as it’s told’, wool of this kind is hard-wearing, easy to sew and will stand the test of time. Dressmakers, Reenactors, Costumiers, Interior Designers and Craftspeople and all lovers of textiles will find a plethora of uses for this first-rate herringbone, taking you through A/W and into spring.
Dressmakers; fashion classic outerwear and hard-wearing separates. Simple yet stylish pencil skirts, A-line skirts and waistcoats are a perfect place to start. Add a complementary lining for garments that will soon become perennial favourites. Shift dresses and pinafore dresses are super comfy and will make classic key pieces. When you’re feeling more confident try classic jackets, coats and capes. For the daring and creative; try feminine Chanel-style suits with coordinating velvet trims or your own bespoke frayed tweed trim.
Reenactors and Costumiers; embrace the soft cool tones of this exclusive one-off woollen that is perfect for most outerwear. Natural fibres with a soft colour palette, in a classic weave. Smart!
Interior Designers; cosy soft furnishings will give a truly harmonious styling in the home, such as cushions, throws, blinds and curtains.
Craftspeople; appliquéd cushions, bag making, door stops, draught excluders, hats, caps, neck warmers, mittens & wrist-warmers, throws & blankets and much more. Whatever this fabric inspires you to do!
The Perfect Fit; having spent time testing out colour and weave combinations we suggest using Foothills alongside the other soft tones of Valley Mist for a calm and understated palette.
