Herbarium - Houndstooth Check is a superb country style check. Woven from a subtle combination of lovely blended yarns in delightful her and kitchen garden tones. Delicate pink-hued cream yarn (the colour of rambling roses) forms the overall background, alternating with dusty green and grey the colour of sage leaves and other herb garden favourites. An overcheck of the purple sage and berry red compliments the subtle femininity of this traditional houndstooth weave check. This heritage design with a nature-inspired yarn combination is perfect for creating key pieces for elegantly attired gents and ladies.
Herbarium - Houndstooth Check has a sturdy and stable handle with a traditional country woollen feel. Wool fabrics will naturally regulate to the temperature of the wearer and protect from the outside elements. Naturally water repellent too, this fabric will also keep you dry as well as warm.
