Copper Beech Check - Yorkshire Tweed is a gorgeous all wool tweed. Manufactured in Huddersfield undergoing the same processes as our exclusive Heart of Huddersfield range.
Woven from superb blended yarns in rich tones of nature, this traditional country tweed is the colour of rich dark coppery leaves fluttering in the breeze. The characteristic multi tonal yarns of this range are showcased in the small scale windowpane check. Intersecting bands of dried wheat colour form the windowpanes and draw the eye to the rich multi tones of the background. These are the organic colours of nature, with rich autumnal leaves and forest berries.
Copper Beech Check - Yorkshire Tweed is a closely woven woollen fabric. It has a versatile medium weight and a traditional rustic wool feel yet has a smoothness akin to a wool flannel with a milled finish (similar to a lightweight soft melton), which will naturally repel water.

Wool of this kind is easy to sew and will stand the test of time.
