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 , and last but not least the wonderful Donegal Tweed. 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 of my own), is a traditional twill style that creates a fish-bone pattern as.

The three and used in everyday garments. Estate owners will commonly create their own design-exclusive to themselves.
