Our Magee Tweed comes from County Donegal in the northwest of Ireland. In 1866 John Magee started to trade with Tweed and since then the family business has grown constantly. This weaving mill is not only known for its bright and colourful tweeving fabrics. Because you can find the colors of the rough landscape of Donegal. The dotted landscape of Donegals inspired the socalled "salt and pepper " fabrics and the herring bone pattern comes from the trenches of fish caught in the Atlantic Ocean
What makes Wool so special?
Wool has a unique structure that gives it a natural elasticity, so that the substances return to their natural shape. Wrinkles and crease folds are also avoided. It can easily absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture, without feeling moist or clinging. The ability of wool to absorb moisture makes it comfortable under warm as well as under cold conditions. In addition, wool fabrics are tear-resistant and the outer skin of the wool fibre is like a protective film, which gives the wool an improved robustness.Find out more in our Tweed-Dictionary.
