Donegal Tweed

T

he Donegal Tweed is a special form of tweed, which today is still partly produced in classic looms. Historically, the tweed comes from the town (and surrounding area) of the same name, Donegal in Ireland. Today, most of Donegal's tweed production comes from factories, but traditional handicrafts are still preferred by many. The fabrics are still handmade and many production steps have hardly changed in the last hundred years. There are over 40 different colour combinations, and the Fil-à-Fil pattern is considered the classic. The tweed production in Donegal has been refined over generations and therefore this tweed is considered to be of a very high quality. Especially well-known is Magee or Magee of Donegal, where Donegal tweed has been successfully produced for years. A jacket or cap with Donegal tweed protects against wind and weather, it had to resist the stormy conditions of Ireland. The natural oils of the wool fabric are not removed, which gives the tweed its resistance especially to water.
