Donegal: A birds eye style tweed, made in Northern Ireland.
Houndstooth: Like TV, it started out black and white, but can now be found in various colors.
Herringbone: The classic chevron stripe pattern, and the signature of Harris Tweed, handwoven on the Western Isles of Scotland using local wool.
Unassuming and hard-wearing, tweed started out as all-weather hunting gear with a slight camouflage effect. Its signature heathered coloring is obtained by twisting different colored wool threads into a multii-ply yarn. And it's back this season, in slightly lighter weight versions of the traditional woolen patterns.
