Posts by Tweedy

Pre 1980's Harris Tweed tended to be much heavier & courser, from 1980's onwards many of the tweeds became alot lighter and softer. A 1960's / 70's Harris Tweed jacket will often say "Lightweight" on the label, but actually by todays terms would be considered quite a heavy weight Harris Tweed
Although I would not strictly call these tweed, they are similar to the fancy woven welsh tweeds. Most of these however are french vintage suits, they did some amazing fancy wool weaves : )

Tweed is a rough, unfinished woollen fabric, of a soft, open, flexible texture, resembling cheviot or homespun, but more closely woven. It is made in either plain or twill weave and may have a check or herringbone pattern. Subdued, interesting colour effects (heather mixtures) are obtained by twisting together differently coloured woolen strands into a two- or three-ply yarn.
Very interesting read Don, thank you for sharing
