Grey wool tweed cloth with a check pattern

Grey Clapdale Traceable Wool Tweed Cloth, per metre


A thick and heavy 600gm Traceable British Wool country tweed cloth in a grey check pattern. Manufactured in Yorkshire from the Dalesbred breed of sheep as part of our Clapdale Wool project. The Dalesbred wool in this cloth has gone no further than 50 miles from the sheep it was sheared from, to the yarn spinners and to the mill the cloth was woven in.

This cloth is reasonably coarse, like the hardy Dalesbred breed it comes from, perfect for suiting and country tweed clothing.  We've sourced this wool from three local Dalesbred farmers for the purposes of weaving into blankets and cloth. It has then been blended to create a yarn suitable for weaving.*

Clapdale Wool is manufactured exclusively by Glencroft from fleeces collected from farms within ten miles of our warehouse in Clapham, Yorkshire Dales. Farmers were paid a decent price for their clip and in addition a share of the profits from the project will also go back to the farms.

Cloth is 150cm wide and weighs just over 600g per metre, if you order more than 1 metre we will cut it accordingly so you receive just one piece of fabric. Also available in green check.

*Contains a blend of Dalesbred and Cheviot wool. We originally wanted a 100% Dalesbred tweed but we found the fibre of this mountain sheep breed would have been too thick on its own to go through the weaving machines. We therefore had to source a finer wool to blend it with.
