This gorgeous all wool tweed. Manufactured in Huddersfield undergoing the same processes as our exclusive Heart of Huddersfield range. This fabric is not one of Fabworks' own exclusive designs.
Artichoke Check - Yorkshire Tweed is a closely woven woollen fabric. It has a versatile medium weight and a traditional wool feel that boasts a stable handle that drapes reassuringly with the promise of cosy warmth. It’s the perfect fabric for a plethora of sewing room projects and it will always do as it’s told. Wool of this kind is easy to sew and will stand the test of time.
A pleasing grey melange yarn forms the warp of this superb tweed and is intersected by fresh natural white stripes (forming the verticals of the check). Expertly blended glaucous (blue-green) yarns, the colour of statuesque artichoke plants, form the weft and have intersecting stripes of natural white with grey accents (to form the horizontals of the check). The combination of gentle natural hues in this cleverly woven check draw the eye to the fine detail of the subtle herringbone design . Calming and easy on the eye, the overall tones bring to mind those architectural giants of the vegetable patch - artichokes with their spiky foliage of silvery blue green.
All lovers of textiles will find a plethora of uses for this first-rate Yorkshire Tweed, taking you through A/W and perfectly into spring.
Artichoke Check - Yorkshire Tweed is perfect for fashioning classic outerwear and hard-wearing separates. Start with simple and stylish pencil skirts, A-line skirts and waistcoats, choose a complementary quality lining and you’ll have garments that will soon become perennial favourites. Shift dresses and pinafore dresses are super comfy and make classic key pieces. When your sewing skills are more established, try classic jackets, coats and capes.
Freshen up your home and use this hard-wearing wool check to create a range of coordinating soft furnishings such as cushions, throws, blinds and curtains for a truly harmonious styling in the home.
Don't forget to use all your scraps for; 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!
