Time to don that tweed thinking hat of yours and find a special gift for Mum or Grandma this Mothers Day! March 04 2021
Top Tweedy Treats to buy Mum and Grandma this Mothers Day
This years Mothering Sunday is only a few weeks away...Sunday 14th March to be exact. So time to put on your tweed hat and start thinking of gifts... to give you a hand I have personally selected some tweedy treats we just know your mum/grandma is going to love!
First up our good friend the facemask available in both the cotton or tweed check. All our face masks are received with 1x filter and 1x bendable nose band - which I hear is great for preventing steam if mum or grandma wears glasses. We have some really pretty floral ones, very Cath Kidson also some fun animal prints as well as our traditional and vibrant tweed checks. 2 for £15 for the cotton facemasks or £10.50 for our tweed facemasks. Extra filters and nosebands available to purchase separately.
We may be heading into spring and lighter nights but I can guarantee we are still having those chilly mornings and cold evenings however a cosy headband is just the answer! A really useful present especially if mum/grandma really loves being active in the great outdoors.
Next is the Jessica Snood which made an appearance on my Instagram reels last week and lots of you loved this style. Easy to wear our Jessica Snood is similar to the Classic Snood, with the button and loop detail. However the pleated suede frames the face giving this detail the wow factor! Great to match with our Headbands.
An alternative to our Tweed Snoods and Jessica Snoods are our Alice Scarf. A neat detailed scarf, also fleece lined crosses over the body to pull thorough a loop. This neat scarf isn't as chunky as our snoods and will certainly carry them through the seasons.
Keeping it cosy in the home with our scatter Tweed Cushion, handmade with applique detail each cushion features beautiful countryside animals, tones and textures of warmth to fill the home. Perhaps mum is Quackers... and this is the perfect gift, or you want to tell her their's only one baa-my lady round here!
All these beautiful Tweed Accessories and gifts are handmade with love here in Yorkshire using Yorkshire woven Tweed, making them the perfect thoughtful gift for Mum or Grandma. So pull out all the cloth and spread some Yorkshire love this Mothers Day! Don't forget.... Mums the Word!
Style Inspiration- March February 25 2021
Goodbye February you fabulous month...
Its Pay Day tomorrow... and March is looking like layers are key! Weather your wearing them to walk the dog, heading to the shops or to enjoy the spring sunshine.
Tweed is key at this time of year and just one layer can make all the difference with its hygroscopic qualities your body temperature will be kept to your natural temperature.

What's the one thing you look for when purchasing a new headband?! February 12 2021
Perhaps it that it's made with Pure Wool Tweed for its insulating qualities as a hygroscopic fabric. Also for being breathable, wool has a unique structure that allows it to absorb and release moisture without it effecting its thermal efficiency. Also wool is naturally an elastic fibre which helps to keep our headbands in shape too.
Or our Anti-pill Polyester Fleece lining which makes our headbands highly breathable with a comfortable layer of insulation as polyester fleece traps air pockets between its fibres creating warm air from your natural body heat. Also our polyester fleece is light weight and delicately soft when worn next to sensitive skin.
Perhaps it's that the fleece is all treated to be Anti-pill Polyester this prevents balls (or pills) of thread appearing on the surface of the fabric. The anti pill treatment means the fleece will be bobble free for longer.
Or like me you like the elastic at the back of your headband to be covered for a finished off desirable look.
Perhaps a pretty tweed to catch your eye but also something practical drawn from the countryside our Yorkshire woven tweed certainly covers both of them pointers.
All our headbands are handmade by myself in North Yorkshire and they all hold these amazing qualities for keeping your head and ears warm yet breathable.
