'What is Tweed?' Scottish Woollens article from 1944

Posted on October 24, 2013 by Emma Nicolson

Fascinating article from Scottish Woollens, a series of papers published by the National Association of Scottish Woollen Manufacturers, that discusses the origins of tweed. 'Tweed could perhaps be described rather than defined as a cloth of medium weight, best adapted for suits for men and women... Tending, but no means limited to broken effects of colour, attained either by pattern or by blends of colour; quite definitely limited to wool spun on the Scotch system - that is, woolen, not worsted yarn.' See our own range of Strathspey Tweed.
