Honeycomb Harvest - Birdseye is an all wool birdseye weave from the Summer Wine collection, one of our very special exclusive Heart of Huddersfield wools.
There are five sumptuous yarns that make up this gorgeous birdseye weave. Pale marled grey, charcoal and natural white yarns sit together to form the warp, which appears consistently throughout all the Heart of Huddersfield birdseye fabrics. This is like the fabric’s base layer or it’s foundation – hover over the photographs for a close-up of this colour detailing. The weft yarns are the bespoke colours that bring the fabric to life, unique to each colourway. The weft of Honeycomb Harvest features two delicious multi tonal yarns, one is a golden honey shade and the other a rich marled saffron orange. Combining these five yarns creates mesmerising depth within this fabric’s complex and unique weave.
Our inspiration for this stunning wool tweed is warm honey mead, translated into fabric form. A palette of rich sun-drenched tones with subtle highlights of natural white will make you stand out from the crowd when sporting stunning honeycomb-inspired ‘me mades’. If you love the lavishness of this stunning 100% wool, match it with other Summer Wine wools for a complementary palette.

Did you know? The birdseye weave takes its name from the small oval shape within the weave, resembling the shape of an actual bird’s eye. This is an outstanding and unique weave that gives a detailed and eye-catching design using subtle combinations of yarn. Sometimes people describe this weave as having an ovular honeycomb-like design.
