Textile Tuesday: Tweed

Tweed has been around for ages starting it’s home with the Scots and then was picked up by the English where its modern day name came to be. It’s traditionally made of spun and died wool which is then woven into several different designs such as:

  • Basic Twill Weave
  • Herringbone Weave
  • Houndstooth Weave
  • Plaid Weave

You can find tweed in just about everything now: jackets, pants, seat covers, home decor accents, blankets, the list goes on. When you do purchase a tweed piece of fabric, just remember to dry clean, because washing and drying it will cause major shrinkage.
