Bringing together Harris Tweed® with the finest cashmere to create the ultimate limited edition scarves

 

The Kitty Mackenzie Scarf
A unique, Scottish design, my limited edition signature scarves are a luxurious combination of hand woven Harris Tweed paired with sumptuously soft Scottish cashmere. I  take great pride in making a high quality, stylish accessory which bears the label Made in Scotland.

Harris Tweed is made by the legendary weavers residing in Scotland’s remote Outer Hebrides, with wool spun and dyed in that same beautiful landscape. For generations the rich hues of nature have inspired the island weavers to blend and hand-weave exquisite fabrics of timeless elegance. Each thread is, unusually, dyed before it is spun and this gives the cloth it’s unmistakable richness and depth of colour.

Each Harris Tweed scarf is lined with the finest cashmere cloth, woven at Scotland’s most prestigious wool mills.  Cashmere is a luxurious fibre which comes from the soft under hair of goats living in the mountains of Mongolia. It’s exceptional softness and warmth make it highly prized for luxury garments and Scottish mills have long excelled at spinning and weaving the fibres into beautiful cloth due to the softness of the water here.

About Me
As a member of the Mackenzie clan with family forebears from the Isle of Harris and Lewis,  I have lived in Scotland since 1998. Through my love of walking I discovered Scotland’s iconic rural woollen mills and was inspired to design my signature Harris Tweed and cashmere scarves, bringing together the finest cashmere with the great Harris Tweed to create the ultimate Scottish scarf. My luxury scarves are made in Scotland and I personally take great pleasure in sourcing all my cloth direct from Harris Tweed weavers and Scottish cashmere mills.

My passion for Harris Tweed cloth is fired by its relationship with the Hebridean landscape and the weavers who make it. The great depth of colours inherent in Harris Tweed is a joy to work with. Each piece of cloth is a work of art in its own right, woven by skilled artisans who uphold Scottish textile traditions for new generations to enjoy.
