per half metre
Fabric Code: A4e17

Tilled Earth - Yorkshire Tweed is a gorgeous all wool tweed. Manufactured in Huddersfield undergoing the same processes as our exclusive Heart of Huddersfield range.

Alternating multi tonal melange yarns of earthy green and rich dried leaves sit on the warp, with a autumn leaves toned melange yarn that forms the weft, elevated by the addition of fine fibres (of differing thicknesses) to produce the characteristic flecks of a classic country tweed.

Tilled Earth - Yorkshire Tweed has the look of a true classic, perhaps something Jane Marple would have worn in the '40s with her hand-knitted sweaters? Yet this self-assured fabric is just as current now, with top British designers favouring this classic British-style of tweed. This stunning wool tweed brings to mind the vistas of the open countryside with rolling fields of newly tilled earth.

This closely woven woollen has a versatile medium weight and a traditional wool feel, without being rough or itchy. Boasting a stable handle and reassuring drape, Tilled Earth - Yorkshire Tweed is perfect for a plethora of sewing room projects. A closely woven fabric that will do as you tell it. Woollen fabrics of this kind are easy to sew and will stand the test of time.

Dressmakers, Reenactors, Costumiers, Interior Designers and Craftspeople; you will find a plethora of uses for this first-rate fabric, taking you through A/W and into spring.

Dressmakers; this fabric is ideal for fashioning classic outerwear pieces and hard-wearing separates. Start with simple yet stylish pencil and A-line skirts with matching waistcoats.

Choose a complimentary lining to give a sophisticated finish for garments that will soon become perennial favourites.

If you want an even more luxe style, feminine Chanel style suits with coordinating velvet trims will look a million dollars.
