Donegal Tweed

Donegal Tweed is a woven tweed manufactured in County Donegal, Ireland. Originally all handwoven, it is now mostly machine woven and has been since the introduction of mechanised looms in the 1950s/1960s. Donegal has for centuries been producing tweed from local materials in the making of caps, suits and vests. Towards the end of the eighteenth century, The Royal Linen Manufacturers of Ulster distributed approximately six thousand flax spinning wheels and sixty looms for weaving to various Donegal homesteads. These machines helped establish the homespun tweed industry in nineteenth-century Donegal.

Donegal Tweed fabric – with the characteristic small pieces of yarn in different colours
While the weavers in County Donegal produce a number of different tweed fabrics, including herringbone and check patterns, the area is best known for a plain-weave cloth of differently-coloured warp and weft, with small pieces of yarn in various colours woven in at irregular intervals to produce a heathered effect. Such fabric is often labelled as “donegal” (with a lowercase “d”) regardless of its provenance.
Along with Harris Tweed manufactured in the Scottish Highlands, Donegal is the most famous tweed in the world.

“Fresco Traveller” Summer Suit

Looking for a suit that is light and cool enough for Summer but isn’t linen and stays crips like business suit? Well this beautiful blue suit in a “Fresco Traveller” fabric by Caccioppoli is the one. Fresco is typically made up of a high twist wool and plain weave. The high twist creates an open weave which makes it very breathable and lightweight, great for hot weather. Although it is quite dense and very resilient, makes it perfect for traveling. The subtle plaid pattern shown here also has a bright blue windowpane which adds a little pop of color.
