Word of the Week: Fuidheag

15th April

Here’s to making good use of small things…
Harris Tweed® Word of the Week: ‘fuidheag’.

“A ‘fuidheag’ is a rope made of yarn, usually taken from the end of the warp when you’ve finished weaving. We use it to tie up the tweeds before we take them up to the mill.”
