Periwinkle & Cornflower Herringbone - 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 super denim blue, purple and lilac tones, like its pretty cottage garden namesakes; Periwinkles & Cornflowers.
A beautiful multi tonal warp yarn of limestone gray sits alongside a superb mossy melange yarn to form the base. A stunning yarn, with multi tones of cobalt blue through to sky blue, lilac and purple forms the weft, creating a very subtle contrast between the chevrons of the herringbone weave. The combination of the two yarns and herringbone design has a very tranquil look and versatile style.
