Outer fabric: Harris featherweight wool tweed
Composition: 100% wool
"Harris Tweed is the only handwoven fabric produced in commercial quantities. The yarn production process uses specially blended yarns produced to secret recipes and then warped up to exclusive designs before being sent to weavers’ homes to be handwoven by highly skilled weavers.
The cloth is then returned to the mill to be finished in a modern finishing plant to a very high standard. The next stage in the process is examination by the independent Harris Tweed Authority, before application of the famous Orb trademark which is ironed onto the fabric as the ultimate seal of approval..
Yarn or piece dyed: Loose wool dyed (different types of wool are blended together and dyed before being twisted into yarn)
Spinner & dyer: Harris Tweed Hebrides, Shawbost Isle of Lewis, Scotland - www.harristweedhebrides.com
Weaver: One of Harris Tweed Hebrides' home-based weavers will weave your garment. You will be able to trace your weaver from the number printed on the inside of your garment.
The law decrees that genuine Harris Tweed has been dyed and spun on the islands and hand-woven at the home of the weaver in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland.
