Candy Sprinkles 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 super smart and full of rich natural tones and some pretty pops of colour too! Forming the base are beautiful multi tonal warp yarns, in a combination of moss and lichen greens plus rich nutty browns (the colour of ripe chestnuts). A gentle natural sheep's fleece toned yarn, with delightful pops of pink and turquoise toned Donegal flecks form the weft, creating a subtle contrast between the chevrons of the herringbone weave. The combination of the yarns gives the fabric self assured style, with classic country appeal and a modern twist.
Candy Sprinkles is a closely woven woollen fabric. It has a versatile medium weight and a traditional rustic wool feel that boasts a stable handle that drapes reassuringly with the promise of cosy warmth. It’s the perfect fabric for a plethora of sewing room projects and it will always do as it’s told. Wool of this kind is easy to sew and will stand the test of time.

Dressmakers; Candy Sprinkles is perfect for fashioning classic outerwear and hard-wearing separates.
