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. The Mended Tweed Black and White design was part of the Irish bedspread collection supplied to Hille during the 1960's.
