Up The Garden Path - Yorkshire Tweed is a gorgeous all wool tweed. Manufactured in Huddersfield undergoing the same processes as our exclusive Heart of Huddersfield range. This fabric is not one of Fabworks' own exclusive designs.
Up The Garden Path is a superb flat weave tweed, with a lovely lightly textured look full of multi tonal greys and black, akin to granite pathways. This was created by using a multi tonal marled grey yarn throughout the warp and a multi tonal grey yarn with Donegal flecks of black, natural beige and white woven through the weft. The traditional (but still very current) 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. There's nothing to pull the wool over your eyes, or lead you up the garden path about this excellent Yorkshire tweed.
Grey fabrics are a staple of most peoples wardrobes, ideal for teaming with most other colours. This can be super smart or stylishly casual depending on the garment you choose to make and how you style it.
Up The Garden Path is a closely woven woollen fabric. It has a versatile medium weight and a traditional 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, Reenactors, Costumiers, Interior Designers, Craftspeople and all lovers of textiles will find a plethora of uses for this first-rate Donegal, taking you through A/W and perfectly into spring.
Dressmakers; Up the Garden Path is perfect for fashioning classic outerwear and hard-wearing separates.
