You will say that tweed is a woollen fabric. And you will be right, of course. But before the appearance of this wonderful fabric there was the River Tweed, which we will tell you about.
Harris, a southern part of the Scotch island Lewis is considered to be a homeland of tweed. Harris tweed is a tweed as it is, whose reputation is maintained over the decades. This world famous fabric is made of sheep fleece, which is reeled in thick rough threads.
