Lochcarron of Scotland 2661C tweed

Lochcarron of Scotland boasts a heritage dating back to 1892, and is a leading manufacturer of tartan. The company offers a range of luxurious check fabrics and authentic tartans that are proudly Made in Scotland by skilled craftsmen and women who design, dye, warp, weave, mend and tailor at its mill in Selkirk.

The largest remaining working textile mill in the heart of the Scottish Borders, Lochcarron of Scotland is  based in the beautiful Scottish Borders town of Selkirk, where there is a long and rich history with the textile industry.

For SS21, the company has developed a new tweed fabric called the 2661C tweed, which is woven using an innovative 100% recycled yarn. The yarn is created from garments which are shredded and then spun into yarn.

The composition is 70% wool, 25% polyamide and 5% other fibres. It is a beautiful coating fabric with a soft and luxurious handle.

The campaign to promote the creativity, quality, craftsmanship and innovation within the UK textile industry has been developed by UKFT in partnership with The Clothworkers’ Company. Contact textiles@ukft.org for more details.
