Why Wool? It’s Natural!

6th October

Wool is 100% natural and not man-made.

It is one of the ‘most effective forms of all-weather protection known to man, and science is yet to produce a fibre which matches its unique properties’.

By law, Harris Tweed® cloth must only ever be made using 100% pure new wool.
