Pansy Petal - Teal Herringbone is an all wool herringbone fabric from the Weaver’s Garden collection, one of our very special Heart of Huddersfield wools.
Spun from a blend of the finest wool fibres, forming a subtly contrasted pansy pink-purple all over tone. Alternating black and dark teal warp yarns forms the base, with a predominantly purple-pink weft yarn. The combination of these yarns creates a rich purple heather tone that showcases the chevrons of the classic herringbone weave. Perfect for most skin tones!
The Weaver’s Garden collection draws inspiration from the plant life within a typical weaver’s cottage garden, pretty pansies scattered around rambling grapevines and lush fruits climbing over the old greenhouse.
A closely woven woollen fabric that features a versatile light-medium weight and a soft wool feel with a stable handle with a reassuring drape that can be trusted to form pretty gathers. This is the perfect fabric for a plethora of sewing room projects, as it will always 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; Pansy Petal - Teal Herringbone is perfect for fashioning classic outerwear and hard-wearing separates. Start with simple and stylish pencil skirts, A-line skirts and waistcoats, choose a complementary lining and you’ll have garments that will soon become perennial favourites. Shift dresses and pinafore dresses are super comfy and make classic key pieces. When your sewing skills are more established, try classic jackets, coats and capes. For the daring and creative; feminine Chanel-style suits with coordinating velvet trims or your own bespoke frayed tweed trim.
Reenactors and Costumiers; embrace the natural hues of this all wool fabric, it’s perfect for hard-wearing outerwear - natural fibres with a rich purply palette and classic weave. Ideal!
Interior Designers; use this classic wool herringbone to create a range of coordinating soft furnishings such as cushions, throws, blinds and curtains for a truly harmonious styling in the home.
Craftspeople; appliquéd cushions, bag making, door stops, draught excluders, hats, caps, neck warmers, mittens & wrist-warmers, throws & blankets and much more. Whatever this fabric inspires you to do!
The Perfect Fit; having designed the whole collection, testing out colour and weave combinations we think that Pansy Petal works excellently with the rest of Weaver’s Garden as well as the other striking rich and warm toned herringbones (teal and black warp). If you’re looking for another herringbone to really set off the purple and teal colours use Rich Kingfisher for a fab colour rich palette.
Did you know that there are two different coloured warps within the twelve Herringbone fabrics? There are six herringbones with a soft marled pale grey warp, which combine with the coloured weft yarns to make these six gorgeous soft pastels tones. The other warp is a rich deep marled teal with hints of black that combines with the coloured weft yarns to make these striking rich and warming tones. Pansy Petal is one of the six rich and warming herringbones.
