Salt of the Earth Nailhead - Eco Wool

per half metre
Fabric Code: A2d37 (A2c46)
Introducing a very small and limited stock range of eco wool fabrics! Blissful natural/neutral tones with traditional heritage style. So why is this fabric eco friendly? As well as being spun, woven and finished in Huddersfield (Yorkshire) a neighboring town to Dewsbury (home of Fabworks) and therefore holding a low carbon footprint, in fact this fabric has been made from the fleeces of British sheep, followed by minimalist treatments thereafter; no dyes and minimal chemicals, thus producing these wonderful natural/neutral colour palettes. These are one of the most sustainable and eco friendly woollen fabrics on the market.

Salt of the Earth Nailhead - Eco Wool is a superb nailhead weave, created by a lovely natural blended yarn with equal earthy brown and grey tones throughout, sitting alongside a classic neutral fleece colour. All the shades of earthy northern landscapes are present in this fabric. The combination of the natural coloured yarn and the 'salt of the earth' tone accentuates the traditional nailhead design. This heritage weave (named because the small square picks) looks like old fashioned nail heads, and the traditional natural yarn combination has an honest down to earth look and feel - like the Yorkshire men and women who have been making these textiles for generations.

Salt of the Earth Nailhead has a sturdy and stable handle with a traditional country woollen feel. These wool fabrics will regulate to the temperature of the wearer and protect from the elements, naturally water repellent and will also keep you dry as well as warm!

Calling all historical costumiers and reenactors! This first rate fabric will make excellent period clothing such as super smart suits for country gents as well as field coats and jackets, waistcoats, hats, caps and so much more.

Boasting a medium/heavy drape quality that is perfect for creating longer length garments such as overcoats and capes. Classic fabrics never date. For more modern styles choose semi-fitted jackets with matching waistcoats or stylish pea coats and 3/4 coats- perfect for smartening up a jeans and shirt ensemble.

This understated yet quietly confident country tweed will also make fabulously elegant ladies capes and trench style coats with cape details. If you love all things country style then why not extend the eco wools range into your accessories, perfect for neck warmers (add some snug fleece or flannel for the backing), make super smart bags, hats and caps to complete the look.

This hard-wearing, eco friendly, all wool fabric will also make stylish soft furnishings; cushions, blinds, throws and curtains too!
