Thank you, it was quite a task but I thought it would make a good reference point for Harris Tweed fabric patterns through the years...

Thanks, that's awesome, it's just a shame the variety has been so viciously cut back in recent years.

why boast that you have all of these vintaage patterns of Harris Tweed when nobody can ever see them or worse yet , are these patterns still available for purchase?

I think you may have misunderstood : I am not boasting, I do not sell Harris Tweed fabric and I have never claimed to do so :confused: I am choosing to share a collection of images I have taken some of the fantastic Harris Tweed fabrics that I deal with. As I sell so many heritage / vintage Harris Tweed jackets I am in a priveleged position as so many of the cloths are no longer produced, I wish to share that with others who are intersted in this wonderful cloth, my choice :)

Just a quick note, there are now 4 parts to the Harris Tweed fabric pattern image reference collection. I have added the links to each one to make them easier to find.
There are over 300 images of different Harris Tweed fabrics in total and I shall be adding many more very soon. :)

Yes it is a real shame, we currently have over 300 different Harris Tweed wool jackets and the wonderful variety still amazes me : )
