Vintage Pure New British Wool Tweed Cloth
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. We’ve got a little collection of tweeds, fine tweeds, woven on very old looms. I’d like to think that they were hand looms but I don’t think they are. The cloth is only 1 m (39”) wide, in fact it’s 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 wasn’t 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.
