Daleside Ramble - Harris Herringbone Check is an all wool herringbone tweed. Manufactured in Huddersfield undergoing the same processes as our exclusive Heart of Huddersfield range. This fabric a not exclusive to Fabworks.
Woven from yarns from the Isle of Harris this mellow gold and moss toned woollen features a strong, hard-wearing marled charcoal warp yarn and a combination of rich pale and darker golden green tones on the weft. The addition of a classic windowpane overcheck in an uplifting Lovat green tone elevates this first rate woollen and adds a subtle point of interest.
The blend of coloured wool fibres in this combination of yarns produces a slightly obscured and hazy look to the small herringbone weave. The herringbone itself is full of verdant tones, evoking thoughts of rambling through the Yorkshire Dales where ancient dry stone walls appear painted by coloured moss and lichens.
