Heather & Gorse Donegal - Harris Herringbone is an all wool herringbone tweed fabric from our very special Heart of Huddersfield range, part of the Valley Mist collection. Woven from Harris yarns with a charcoal warp and a marvellous marled yarn that is predominantly purple featuring Donegal flecks of lilac pink, teal, royal purple, turquoise, navy and yellow. The combination of the charcoal weft and this stunning Donegal yarn obscures the herringbone weave detail but gives the most pleasing multicoloured true tweed look.
Heather & Gorse Donegal takes its inspiration from the wild moors with its purple heather and golden yellow gorse bushes. Generations ago weavers’ cottage gardens may have looked out upon this view, complementing their own pretty gardens bursting with hydrangeas, pansies and bluebells sitting happily alongside fruit and vegetables.
This closely woven woollen has a versatile medium weight with a traditional country wool tweed feel. Boasting a stable handle and reassuring drape, Heather & Gorse Donegal - Harris Herringbone is ideal for all lovers of textiles, natural fibres and especially fabric connoisseurs. This skilfully crafted fabric will ‘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 and Craftspeople and all lovers of textiles will find a plethora of uses for this first-rate herringbone, taking you through A/W and into spring.
Dressmakers; fashion classic outerwear and hard-wearing separates. Simple yet stylish pencil skirts, A-line skirts and waistcoats are a perfect place to start. Add a complementary lining for garments that will soon become perennial favourites. Shift dresses and pinafore dresses are super comfy and will make classic key pieces. When you’re feeling more confident try classic jackets, coats and capes. For the daring and creative; try feminine Chanel-style suits with coordinating velvet trims or your own bespoke frayed tweed trim. A fabric that will keep you warm and dry without being too heavy or bulky.
