Winter Yarn

Winter is definitely a plus for texture and a chunky cloth worthy of any British heritage. I couldn't resist this herringbone weave when I saw it on my favourite market here in Milan. After hefty bargaining I was the owner of this tailored beauty.
The grain is more than chunky and has a great texture to it, where the individual fibres really stand out. Some fur was called for, to reinforce the graininess of the fabric and voilĂ , you have a medieval looking winter garment.
