Vintage Pure New British Wool Tweed Cloth

Forsooth_Pure New Wool_I

As I speak to you, the temperature outside is 7.5 degrees and here inside this particular part of the mill, it is less than that.  So I thought to myself why not.  Weve got a little collection of tweeds, fine tweeds, woven on very old looms.  Id like to think that they were hand looms but I dont think they are.  The cloth is  only 1 m (39) wide, in fact its not quite that wide.  It has a little bit of a rough hand to it, not a lot, but it is not a silky cloth, in the way that a modern worsted wool cloth is.  They are genuine British tweed cloths woven with different coloured yarns. 

I wasnt supposed to tell you about these.  I was due to save them but I just felt that way out and, even though they are narrow, they have a bit of history do these cloths and they are nicely made, you could say vintage as they were woven by midsummer weavers in the 80's. they are 7.00 per metre, which if you double it up to 14.00 for a wider cloth you will not get a better cloth for anything like that kind of money, no matter where you go.
