Limestone & Bilberry Check - 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.
Limestone & Bilberry Check is a superb country check, twill woven from a lovely natural blended yarn of predominantly mid grey tone. Look closely and you can see the pleasing multi tonal blue greys. All the shades of Yorkshire limestone; weathered, sun bleached and aged are present in this fabric. The complimentary natural coloured yarn, which accentuates the traditional twill weave (and gives its colour to the verticals and horizontals of the classic windowpane check) sits perfectly alongside a rich dark purple, evoking thoughts of bilberry picking upon the moorlands.
Limestone & Bilberry Check has a sturdy & 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.
Calling all historical costumiers and reenactors! This first rate fabric will make excellent period clothing such as super smart suits for country gents as well as field coats and jackets, waistcoats, hats, caps and so much more.
Boasting a medium/heavy drape quality that is perfect for creating longer length garments such as overcoats and capes. Classic windowpane checked country wools never date... For more modern styles choose semi-fitted jackets with matching waistcoats, or stylish pea coats and 3/4 coats; perfect for smartening up jeans and shirt ensembles.
This understated yet quietly confident country check will also make fabulously elegant ladies capes and trench style coats with cape details. If you love all things country, then why not extend the Yorkshire tweeds into your accessories, perfect for neck warmers (add some snug fleece or flannel for the backing), make super smart bags, hats and caps to complete the look.
