100% wool. Soft, strong and hypoallergenic, there are lots of reasons to love wool. It also happens to be insulating and breathable, so, despite being thought of as a fabric just for the colder months, it’ll also keep you cooler in summer than a man-made textile.
How it feels
As tweeds go, ours is certainly on the softer side. But, you’ll find that it’s a little more textured than our other woollen textiles, with the hardy feel that Harris Tweeds are known for.
Bircher is a pale cream that, like the softness, is also unusual for tweed (which generally comes in brown or green). We’ve found that it’s easy to use because it’s full of variation; it’s a touch darker in some places which gives it a mottled – and more forgiving – look.
Where to use it
A heavier-weight cloth than most tweed jackets, our Harris Tweed is ideal whenever you want a tough, hardwearing textile. It’s natural flame-retardant too, and wool’s elasticity means it keeps its shape longer, making it ideal for upholstery. That said, it’s just as good at adding cosiness in a smaller way on cushions and curtains.

Just so you know
There can be some colour variation between different batches of our fabric – we try to make them as small as possible, but it’s something to be expected with natural fibres. If you’re using this fabric more than once in the same room, we recommend ordering as many metres as you need in one go - that way, we can make sure it’s all from the same batch.
This fabric is professional dry clean only.
