The materials: woolThere are lots of reasons to love 100% wool. It’s strong, hypoallergenic and it happens to be insulating and breathable too, so despite being thought of as a fabric only for cold months, it’ll also keep you cool in summer. As for its handle, the sheep breed and the climate it lives in determines the look and feel. This wool is reflective of the enduring and sublime landscape of the Outer Hebrides, which gives the material its hardy, tactile texture that Harris Tweed is best known for.
The colourYou’ll notice that every Harris Tweed fabric is full of rich colours. This is because the yarns are dyed before being woven, letting the weavers blend several shades to create more depth. Where possible though, they leave the wool in its natural state. Any dyes used are compliant with the ZDHC (Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals) organisation, whose mission is to reduce the amount of harmful chemicals released into the environment.
Where we see itA heavier weight cloth than most tweed jackets, our fabric is ideal whenever you want a hardwearing textile. The wool goes through an extra milling process (where the warp and weft of the fabric are bonded together to create a tighter weave) which results in a strong upholstery material. Its colour and texture are also especially good at adding cosiness with accessories too.
Doing the right thingBy law, every Harris Tweed fabric is required to be wholly made in the Outer Hebrides. This means that not only does the wool carry a minimal carbon footprint, but it also provides sustainable employment for small-scale farmers, mill workers and home weavers, and secures the continuation of traditional craft techniques.
