Donegal tweeds are a classic fabric with a style and quality all of their own. Beautiful as it is, it has always been presented as ahard wearing cloth with a raw rather rough feel.

Our fabulous Melton double cloth is made from the recycled fibre generated in a high quality worsted spinning mill. Though exceptionally high in quality this by-product cannot be reused in true worsted process and has to be spun in a secondary semi-worsted spinning process to make full use of the fibre which would normally be discarded. The result is a cloth of amazing feel and quality yet very affordable.
