A little about wonderful Tweed! Tweed cloth comes in a variety of patterns and weights, with designs. Ranging from Herringbone to Barleycorn, and each has a specific and intended use. Different designs and patterns usually take their name from their place of origin, such as Shetland Tweed and of course the famous Harris Tweed, Yorkshire Tweed , wonderful Donegal Tweed, Cheviot and Saxony. There are , probably more I cannot list here. However, the largest variety arrives from the patterns created by the weave of the material.
Windowpane is a weave of a traditional Twill style. Marled yarns are woven together in a chevron-like pattern.And this makes up the base of the cloth. Herringbone (a favourite), is a traditional twill style that creates a fish-bone pattern.
As the fibres are woven together. Dogstooth/Houndstooth: A highly popular version , this style comes in three sizes. Puppytooth- the smallest no surprise! , Dogtooth- being the most traditional form.Houndstooth the most fashionable of the three and used in everyday garments. Estate owners will commonly create their own design-exclusive to themselves. This results in a fair number of patterns most often utilising Earthy tones (with Organic dyes too), reflecting the. Tones of the natural hues found in the Scottish and Irish beautiful landscape.
Check designs combined the look over overcheck and refined dogtooth. Barleycorn designed Tweed is classically characterised by its textured appearance. It of course, earns it's name from the resemblance to Barleycorns, when they are stored in bulk. Thanks to its' enduring quality, unique patterns and more modern use of brighter colours.
Tweed is at the forefront of the fashion industry. Blending the Past with the Present, it is no. Longer the "fuddy- duddy" mainstay of those such of my scary science teacher at school! I like to wear tweed in so many colours and weaves- it is also a fabric, that can even invoke historical romantic tales..... So many hand loom weavers throughout history to the present, make this wonderful stuff, and.(its' history is an unbelievably inspring story), and how it's invaluable qualities have been in the past, to keep isolated people from freezing, weaving the cloth under sometimes very harsh conditions - "put food in the mouths of the bairns". Tweed is a story of survival- on a lot of levels. If an extremely heavy item - (such as full length tweeds and full length faux furs).
