We’ve been continuing our efforts to bring to you as many British wool fabrics as we can – we adore the colours and textures of these traditional fabrics. When price and availability permit then you’ll find us at the front of the queue, as we were for this flecked navy blue wool tweed fabric.

This classic navy blue wool tweed fabric might initially look like a very reserved choice – but look more closely and you’ll see that those still waters run deep. Originating from the Abraham Moon mills in West Yorkshire, this is another of their 100% wool tweeds. As with its stablemates (millmates?) we’re conscious that a fabric such as this represents a fairly major wardrobe investment for the season so let us remind you of our free sample service should you need to check the feel or colour of this rich fabric

There are two shades of blue yard in this navy blue wool tweed fabric. One is a muted, soft slate blue colour; the other a much darker midnight blue. They combine in a way that suggests real depth – lit up by autumnal flecks of rust, green, crimson and cobalt

We would describe this navy blue wool tweed fabric as lying at the heavier-weight end of a medium-weight suiting fabric; it would also do wonderfully as a coat – although probably not one to take you through the depths of a real winter. Structured, tailored hacking jackets and drapingly-relaxed mid-length coats are surely just the beginning – as are wide-legged or more structured trousers. Also under consideration are shorter A-line skirts and pinafores through to fitted winter dresses and tunics as well as classic tweed pencil skirts, of course.

Our navy blue wool tweed fabric has a slightly textured handle, a close weave and very good opacity for its weight. We’d say that it ‘flops and folds’ rather than draped – however let us assure you that it does so with far more elegance than those words might suggest – as you can see from this video.

As with most wools, this is a fabric you’re probably going to want to line – even trousers would benefit from a half-lining. A coat or jacket would benefit from the weight and substance of our ‘Depths of luxury’ navy blue crepe-backed satin fabric – a marriage made in heaven we think.

We loved this Oversized Coat pattern by BurdaStyle when we tried it a couple of years ago (you can see our version in this blog post). It’s a design with a classic tailored look – but without too many complex processes.
