Yoredale translates the landscapes and textiles of Camira’s home county Yorkshire into a commercial, modern fabric. The certified British wool has an inherent black fibre, and the binder yarn and intricate weave works this through 25 colourways: earthy tones plus the blues, greens and pinks found in David Hockney’s Yorkshire paintings.
