The Story of Tweed by Peter James
An evening with Peter Turner from The James Company, suppliers of fair trader’s woollen tweed jackets and accessories.
Hear about the history of the local woollen textiles industry and the goings-on at the company’s Taylor Hill Mill in Huddersfield. Discover the stories of Herdwick, a new wool coming from the Lake District, and the world-renowned Harris Tweed fabric which is handwoven by the islanders at their homes in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland, and made from pure wool dyed and spun in the islands.
It would be great to see you. Drinks and nibbles will be served.
