Harris Tweed Wool
November 15th, 2022
A fabric created 150 years ago in the Isle of Harris, in the Outer Hebrides, Harris Tweed has become one of the most iconic references of the Scottish textile heritage.
Its manufacturing begins with the virgin wool of sheep that are reared in Scotland, then dyed "in the wool" with a multitude of shades. These are then blended, carded and spun, in order to obtain their unique and distinctive colorway. Once the yarn is warped, it is sent to the home of the weavers with instructions of weaving and pattern. In order to be an approved "Harris Tweed", the fabric must be handwoven on a treadle loom at the weaver's own home. The raw tweed is then sent to the finishing mill to be washed and checked. A protected origin label, Harris Tweed is a fabric that we very much love at De Bonne Facture, with its unique story and inimitable handfeel. It can be found winter after winter in our wardrobe.
