Beekeeper Herringbone - Yorkshire Tweed is a 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.
Woven from a delightful blend of complimentary yarns, this delightful fabric is full of mellow honey tones. The characteristic multi tonal yarns of this range are showcased in the rich, honey amber and marmalade coloured yarn which forms the warp, the large scale chevrons of the herringbone weave are complimented by the green-brown tones of the weft yarns. These are the organic country colours of nature; golden sunshine and sunflowers, ripe wheat fields and busy honey bees and their apiarists gathering honey.
