The rare character and beauty of Harris Tweed is made by truly traditional methods. Hundreds of distinctive patterns developed over the centuries, each unique but unmistakably Harris Tweed with its characteristic subtle designs in complex natural shades.
Unusually our wool is dyed before being spun, allowing us to blend a multitude of colours into our yarn. With each thread containing a myriad of different colours a cloth of great depth and complexity is produced. Just look closely to reveal the true nature of your Harris Tweed. Each bolt of cloth similar but never the same.
There are also an extensive catalogue of designs to delve into from an array of plain twills and traditional herringbones to more complex plaids and all combinations thereof. Harris Tweed is also adventurous enough to be woven into contemporary and unconventional patterns.
Soft, tactile, breathable, warm, colourful, sustainable and adaptable...the old image of coarse, scratchy, dour tweed simply does not exist these days. While still retaining its heritage of practicality and longevity, the Harris Tweed of today extols all the qualities and virtues of a truly luxury 21st century fabric.
