Harris Tweed is woven in the Outer Hebrides and is an extremely desirable 100% wool textile.  It is made using the wool from local sheep, which is then washed and dyed at local mills on the Isle of Harris and Lewis.  The spun yarn is then delivered to local weavers, often with a pattern instruction card from the mill, who will then handweave the yarn using a treadle loom at their home. The finished bolt of raw Harris Tweed is then delivered back to the mill for finishing.
The fabric is protected by an act of parliament and only the skilled men and women from the Outer Hebrides know how to make it, and by law, only they are allowed to do so.
