In the Scottish town of Hawick on the banks of the River Teviot, Lovat Mill, a traditional weaver, is home to the local authorities. The production of the fabric has been carried out since the 17th century with devotion. The firm Tweed keeps warm and is resistant even against moisture. In his colour variations he reminds of the landscape of Scotland. Lovat Tweed is a companion for the whole life. But you don't only realize that Lovat is thinking about the future by this feature. Every substance in the Lovat Mill is sustainably made from natural, biodegradable, pure wool.
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.
