About Harris Tweed

By Rosie: The Bobbin Wool Collaboration

Every metre of Harris Tweed is still hand woven by Islanders, in their own homes, as it has been for centuries.

Clo Mor (the Big Cloth) is the only fabric in the world to be governed by its own Act of Parliament and each stage of its production requires levels of skill passed down through generations to ensure its quality.

Because the wool is dyed before being spun, many different colours can be combined into one yarn, giving Harris Tweed its celebrated depth of colour. Look closely at your tweed to realise its full beauty and see the tiny landscapes within it.
