Harris Tweed and Knitwear

Are you looking to upgrade your wardrobe with something classic? Harris Tweed and Knitwear is the perfect combination of style, texture, craftsmanship, and sophistication. In this guide, we’ll cover how to pick the right pieces to complete your look and make sure you look stylish every time. Not only that, you’ll be supporting some brilliant small businesses at the same time.

We’ve teamed some of our own favourite small Harris Tweed bags with a selection of knitwear from Scottish businesses.

What Is Harris Tweed?

Harris Tweed is an iconic fabric, handwoven in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. It’s woven from pure virgin wool that is dyed and spun in Scotland. The tweed is renowned for its durability, versatility and distinctive patterned colouring – making it a timeless classic in fashion. At Maccessori we have ten stunning Harris Tweed patterns across our range of bags, purses and accessories. Every year we select a brand new colour to add to our collection.

Select a Stylish Knitwear to Go With It

Once you’ve picked the perfect Harris Tweed fabric for your style, the next step is to select a stylish knitwear piece that will go with it. Depending on your style, you can opt for a cardigan or sweater – just make sure it compliments the texture and colour of the tweed. You can also mix and match colours – like pairing a muted tweed with a brightly-coloured sweater – to give your look an extra bit of personality.

Look for Quality Labels and Craftsmanship in Your Selection

Quality is key when choosing the right Harris Tweed and Knitwear combination. You know you’re getting a quality tweed when you choose a Maccessori bag, as we only use Genuine Harris Tweed made in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland.

For your knitwear, we’ve chosen Scottish businesses that specialise in stunning wool items.

If you’re doing your own research, look for labels that indicate quality craftsmanship like “Made in Scotland”, as this will ensure it has been created with skilled hands. Taking the time to research your purchase can make all the difference in terms of style and durability.
