Donegal (tweed)

wool fabric with a rustic, porous surface and a sharp, striking appearance, in linen weave. Typically the warp is light and the weft dark in contrast. Produced from coarser carded yarns, often with coloured neps. In fashion items Donegal tweed may be produced from coarser worsted yarns. Use is determined by garment weight; D. t. is used for many kinds of ladies- and menswear of a more sporty character. The name is derived from the Irish county of Donegal, in which region this type of fabric is produced.
