What is Harris Tweed?

Not every tailor loves this fabric, since this is much harder to process than lovely merino wool. Harris Tweed resists wind and weather, and when others reach for the coat, the wearer of the Harris Tweed just grabs his scarf. Tweed fabrics often last up to three people's lives and the sustainability of the product is shown at the latest.

A special feature of Harris Tweed is the colouring of the wool before the yarn is spun. This makes it possible to create particularly complex colours, which are then refined by subtle but characteristic patterns. In addition to the durability of colourful fabrics, Harris Tweed also places great emphasis on warmth, breathability and sustainability.
