In temperate climates this weight of tweed can be worn almost all year round, it is substantial enough to have all the properties of a traditional tweed cloth without being too heavy. These cloths are also durable so will offer good service for a long time if cared for.
The Islay Woollen Mill was first established in 1883 and is Islay's only Mill. Since its re-opening in 1981, it is owned and run by Gordon and Sheila Covell and produces a wide range of products including rugs, scarves, caps, tweed jackets and kilts as well as raw fabrics.
The Mill is a traditional family-run business and uses two looms dating from Victorian times. Some of the machinery is unique and historical and much of it is still in use.
