A modern take on an old pattern with the original colours updated to a background of white, with fuchsia, blue and an olive yellow.Blanket scarves are two meters in length and are 50 centimeters in width with deep fringing.Due to the lanolin in the wool tweed is water and snow resistant.

Harris Tweed is the only fabric that is protected by an act of parliament, The Harris Tweed Act 1993. Any cloth that is officially Harris Tweed is woven in a weaver’s shed on the island, and only cloth that is made this way can be given the Harris Tweed trademark “Orb” stamp, which the Harris Tweed Authority gives to every piece of cloth.
LOCH ROAG DESIGNS use tweed from Harris Tweed Hebrides, made locally at the Shawbost Mill which is thirty-one miles from my workshop in Valtos. There are around 170 weavers at present, a neighbour of mine being one.
