Try not to wear a funny looking hat if you want to make a statement about your vivid personality. Instead, wear a wool cap with a wool jacket, a wool tie and a pair of good looking wool pants.

But please, never claim style. That is not concidered cool.

Harris Tweed

2007-01-07 11:23

The islands slightly north of the Scottish mainland are called the Hebrides and consist of a bunch of different islands. They are devided into the outer and inner islands and the population of the outer islands are roughly 30000 people and a lots and lots of sheep. This is where Harris Tweed was born some 400 years ago and this is the place of the finest tweed created on this planet. 

This is a rough walkthrough of the process of making tweed, please fill us in if we are leaving out something essential:

1.Sheep got wool
2.Man cut sheep wool and spinn it
3.Spinned wool becomes yarn and get washed and dyed
4.Old people make woolcloth in their home on really old looms
5.Cloth is moved to Harris factory, cleaned and qualitychecked
6.Wool is sold to brands that makes horrible looking blazers and some occational goodlooking hat (except Sson that makes awsome pants that doesn't itch much at all.)
To get the complete picture, please visit their homepage.
Here is some pics from Harris and of the different clothes that we finally choose from the hundred of variants that were presenteted to us.
