Tawny Night Herringbone - Yorkshire Tweed is a gorgeous all wool tweed. Manufactured in Huddersfield undergoing the same processes as our exclusive Heart of Huddersfield range.
Woven from a delightful blend of multi tonal yarns, this fabric is dark and full of rich natural tones. A beautiful multi tonal warp yarn with rich brown and golden beige (like the tones of a Tawny owl's plumage) which forms the fabric's base layer. With the weft formed by a dark charcoal yarn, creating a subtle contrast between the chevrons of the herringbone weave. The combination of the two yarns evokes the shadowy depths of a midnight forest where Tawny owls call from the ancient trees.
An excellent alternative to black this serious herringbone Yorkshire tweed is just stunning.
