Great Yorkshire Tweed
We are pleased to announce that the Yorkshire Agricultural Society, organisers of the the Great Yorkshire Show has launched our Great Yorkshire Tweed.
The Society (YAS) has endorsed and supported Brook Taverner who commissioned 300 limited edition jackets from the specially designed tweed incorporating the Society colours of green and gold and they’re available to order.
Note the ‘Yorkshire Born & Bred’ woven on the inside back of the collar, the white rose of Yorkshire lapel pin and the limited edition label with the white rose and Society crest. Team it with the Society’s official tie and you’ve got a winner!
They are made from a Yorkshire-produced cloth for a Yorkshire organisation through a long standing partnership between YAS and Brook Taverner. The wool is dyed and blended, the yarn spun and woven all at Abraham Moon's – a unique proposition for the Society.
The jackets will be available to buy in June 2016 through Clarksons at York and Eric Spencer Ltd at Ilkley. They will also be available on Eric Spencer’s trade stand at the 2016 Great Yorkshire Show Tuesday 12 – Thursday 14 July.
The price of the jacket is £250. There is a discount of 10% for YAS Members on production of their membership card. Sizes available are 38” – 54”.
Also in the range is a matching Tweed scarf, available to buy from Fodder and priced at £19.95 each with a 5% discount for YAS Members on production of their membership card.
You can register your interest by completing an order form and handing it to Morag or Jayne at the Society’s reception desk in the Regional Agricultural Centre office or by contacting the retailers direct:
