Love the fabric of Sue Barker’s jacket (she’s on the BBC’’ Queen’s coverage today. (It still smarts that I was there on Tuesday in the rain and didn’t get to see any tennis!😫).

I would love to get my hands on a similar fabric. Has anyone seen anything close to this?

It’s on tv now (bbc 2) so a link will probably not be available till later.

Typically, she is isn’t on at the moment 😏. I would imagine she’ll be back on about 5.50 or so or just before the coverage ends (at 6 o’clock).

Anyway the fabric is a creamy silk tweed maybe with a gold thread running through it I think.

While you’re waiting for her to reappear, have a look at the Linton Tweeds website and see if you spot anything similar.
