Arbon Tweed Jacket
Wool is nature’s most versatile fibre. It has such a complex combination of properties that no other material, natural or man-made can match it.
In essence the production of wool is a beautifully simple process whereby Sheep turn the grass into wool, the wool is harvested, then the wool grows back. Where sheep are bred for wool, they are part of the natural carbon cycle, consuming the organic carbon stored in grass and converting it to wool. Wool biodegrades readily on land, or in water, with micro-organisms breaking down the natural fibres. These micro-organisms then break down themselves sustaining a continuous biological life cycle.
The natural qualities of Wool mean that it is renewable, biodegradable and recyclable. It is highly durable, with inherent flame-resistant properties and a good level of natural water repellence. It is simply the ultimate natural performance fibre.
The term “Tweed” was coined quite accidentally in 1826 as the result of a misread label on a shipment of woven wool “Tweels” – the Scots dialect word for twill – from weaver William Watson & Sons of Commercial Road, Hawick, to a London cloth merchant. The word “Tweel” had perhaps not been written clearly on the label but to the merchant “Tweed” made complete sense as these fabrics were chiefly used in those days by gentlemen for shooting and fishing, with the nearby river Tweed being a fashionable destination for such pursuits.
