Hidden Gems Herringbone - Yorkshire Tweed is a gorgeous all wool tweed. Manufactured in Huddersfield undergoing the same processes as our exclusive Heart of Huddersfield range.
Woven from a delightful blend of multi tonal yarns, look closely to reveal the rich natural gems. A beautiful multi tonal warp yarn with moss and lichen greens forms the base and a dusty grey brown yarn forms the weft, but blended into this yarn are a multitude of the most beautiful colours of nature. There are soft heathers, pinks purples, russets, turquoise blues and soft duck egg tones; creating a subtle contrast between the chevrons of the herringbone weave. The combination of the two yarns is subtle but stunning! It's like strolling through a midsummer meadow when all the long grasses have turned into a palette of complimentary hues.
Ideal for those who love blue and heather coloured palettes but need a neutral fabric with an allover grey-brown tone that goes with everything.

It has a versatile medium weight and a traditional rustic wool feel that boasts a stable handle that drapes reassuringly with the promise of cosy warmth.
