Lichen & Blue Spruce Plaid - 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, this fabric is full of calming, grey-green tones (very Loden green), like lichen-covered spruce branches and the patches of lichen found atop rugged dry stone walls.
The intersecting bands of multi-hued grey-greens and beiges sit in perfect harmony with rich spruce green, accentuated by a delicious red-brown overcheck that emulates the colour of the bark and cones of these coniferous trees. Forming a pleasing natural palette with a relaxed country style.
