The term Tweed was coined quite accidentally in 1826 a the result of a misread label on a shipment of woven wool ‘Tweels’ (the scots word for twill) from weaver William Watson of Commercial Road in Hawick to a London cloth Merchant. Proud to be ‘The Home of Tweed’, Lovat Mill continues to tell the story of Tweed in its birthplace and produces the largest selection of stocked Tweeds in Scotland.
