Mended Tweed Blanket - Monochrome IV

A fabric designed by Gerd Hay-Edie for Irish fashion designer Sybil Connolly's 1956 Spring collection, Mourne's Mended Tweed was a real talking point amongst the fashion elite.

"Here comes the girl in a suit in a completely new tweed. The threads are enormous, the weave as clumsy as bad darning, but the fabric that looks so primitive is cunningly subtle and soft."
- Journalist Anne Scott-James (Lady Lancaster)


An unusual weave, the cloth acquires it's tactile, organic quality from 'wild' traditionally spun Pure Merino Donegal yarn.
