Harris Tweed

I have to admit to having a bit of an obsession with Harris Tweed. The whole subject of tweed is fascinating to me :-)

Gone are the days when tweed was seen as something for the old fuddy duddies – these days you are most likely to see tweed on the catwalks of London, Paris and New York.

I have a range of Harris Tweed shawls/wraps and also a selection of Harris Tweed “craft packs” which include the official orb label in the online shop. All available in a wide range of colours.

What is it exactly that makes Harris Tweed so special?

Well, Harris Tweed is a 100% wool fabric that has been hand-woven by the islanders of Lewis, Harris, Uist and Barra, in their homes, using pure virgin wool that has been dyed and spun here in the Outer Hebrides.
