Tweed is a word that evokes an entire vision of textile tradition, from British aristocracy on their country estates to College professors. Originally, it was the hard-wearing everyday cloth of country people. Primitive breed wool often loses its tips and butts in processing, forming neps. Later iterations combined these neps with mixed dyed wool, in order to hide sport hunters. These hard-wearing and multi-colored fabrics became popular with all levels of society and evolved into the classic we all know and love. This modern interpretation contains not only the classic wool neps, but also viscose. The resulting yarn is smooth with a touch of texture, cool, and lustrous.
