Nature's Song - Swallow Birdseye - Yorkshire Tweed

per half metre
Fabric Code: A4b50 (A4e14)

Nature's Song - Swallow Birdseye 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.

There are six sumptuous yarns that make up this gorgeous birdseye weave. Pale marled grey, charcoal with undertones of brown, and a natural white sit together to form the warp. The warp 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. The delicious multi tonal yarns in the weft of Nature's Song - Swallow Birdseye feature a blend of delightful teal blue like the iridescent dark wing plumage of swallows, as well as a contrasting pale grey and charcoal that also appear in the warp. Combining these yarns creates mesmerising depth within this complex and unique weave.

This stunning wool tweed brings to mind those graceful birds with their plumage of iridescent blue black, and highlights of natural grey-white. The rounded birdseye weave echoing the sweet bright eyes, as they soar above sunny skies. Calming and an easy on the eye, if you love the soft delicate tones of this stunning 100% wool, match it with other cool toned tweeds for a complementary palette.

This closely woven woollen has a versatile medium weight and a traditional wool feel, without being rough or itchy. Boasting a stable handle and reassuring drape, Nature's Song is perfect for a plethora of sewing room projects. An intricately woven fabric that will do as you tell it. Woollen fabrics of this kind are easy to sew and will stand the test of time too.

Quite literally a spin off, pardon the pun.
Wool weaving lesson #1: every fabric must have a warp (length ways yarn) and a weft (edge-edge / width yarn). The warp is always one continuous run of yarns, as it’s on the length. The warp is the same throughout all the Birdseye Spin-Offs.
The weft is what determines this fabric’s colour detailing, bringing the fabric to life. Combining these yarns (3 warp, 3 weft) creates mesmerising depth within this complex and unique weave. Pale marled grey, charcoal and natural white yarns sit together to form the warp, whereas the weft combination has been tweaked slightly at each run interval with one different yarn, effectively producing an accent colour giving the fabric its own individuality and spin-off, in a collection of very similar fabrics. The quality is all in the detail.
