Antique Bark is a superb all wool brushed melton fabric, from the Country Walks collection, one of our very special exclusive Heart of Huddersfield wools.
Woven from a plain natural white yarn, felted, dyed and finished to this superb, rich brown colour. The mysterious brown tone epitomises a common autumnal hue of nature. Close your eyes and imagine taking a walk in the rain through ancient woodland where the trees have a dark patina to their rain-soaked bark. This shade of brown is rich, timeless and can be used alongside most other colour schemes.
This closely woven and felted 100% wool has a versatile heavy weight, featuring a traditional wool feel with a pronounced brushed surface. Boasting a stable handle with a reassuring drape, Antique Bark is perfect for keeping the elements out, as wool is naturally weatherproof! This skilfully crafted fabric will do as it’s told. Our Yorkshire Meltons are easy to sew and will stand the test of time.
Dressmakers, Reenactors, Costumiers, Interior Designers, Craftspeople and all lovers of textiles will find a plethora of uses for this brushed Melton.
Dressmakers; this fabric is ideal for fashioning classic outerwear pieces and hard-wearing separates, these meltons will keep you especially warm and dry. Gilets and waistcoats are a great place to start. Choose a complimentary lining and create garments that will become perennial favourites. Once your sewing skills are more established, try classic jackets, coats and capes for a more rewarding project. This hard-wearing felted wool is ideal for field jackets and country style clothing too, as well as classic pea coats, duffle coats and oversized statement pieces.
Reenactors and Costumiers; take delight from the natural hues within this 100% wool that is just perfect for creating hard-wearing outerwear. A traditional rugged woollen that will suit a variety of modern and historical styles.
Interior Designers; a wool featuring that typical rugged look will help you to create a range of cosy but quirky nature-toned soft furnishings. Cushions and throws will all look subtle yet striking in the home with that reassuring comfort factor that wool tends to invoke.
Craftspeople; 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!
