Fortunes Treasure Herringbone - 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.
Woven from a delightful blend of multi tonal yarns in a classic herringbone weave, this fabric has a super soft yarn throughout the weft producing a softer feel than the more traditional tweeds in this range.
Fortunes Treasure is inspired by the silvery blue herrings which are smoked to become kippers at the famous smokehouse on the Yorkshire coast at Whitby.
An amazing multi tonal, dark grey yarn, with the finest fibres of red and teal green, forms the base producing an almost iridescent sheen like the silvery skin of herrings. The dusty dark blue-lilac yarn on the weft creates a very subtle contrast between the opposing chevrons of grey in the herringbone weave. Like the markings and silvery skin of those beautiful fish, the design , colours and traditional herringbone weave of Fortunes Treasure make a pleasing feast for the eye.
An excellent indigo / blue toned Yorkshire tweed perfect for teaming with your jeans, which is just stunning. Fortunes Treasure is a closely woven woollen fabric. It has a versatile medium weight and a soft but hard wearing, 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 - it will always do as it’s told. Wool of this kind is easy to sew and will stand the test of time.
All lovers of textiles will find a plethora of uses for this first-rate herringbone weave, taking you through A/W and perfectly into early spring.
Dressmakers; Fortunes Treasure is perfect for fashioning classic outerwear and hard-wearing separates. Start with simple and stylish pencil skirts, A-line skirts and waistcoats, choose a complementary quality lining and you’ll have garments that will soon become perennial favourites. Shift dresses and pinafore dresses are super comfy and make classic key pieces. When your sewing skills are more established, try classic jackets, coats and capes. Add multi toned, horn type buttons to your makes, picking out the tones of lilac/ blue and grey for an individual style. Traditional hacking jacket styles, with elbow patches and pocket flaps of contrasting grey or dusty lilac corduroy will produce an individuality to die for.
