In the shadow of the Bluestack Mountains in northwestern Ireland, the town of Donegal has been renowned for its handwoven wool tweed for generations. A skilled weaver, working at a bench loom, could make up to 30 yards of fabric in a day, using home-raised wool that was often dyed using natural and local materials including moss, yellow gorse, and blackberries. Today the town's largest manufacturer of wool tweed is the Magee, Molloy & McNutt factory, which presides over Donegal's town center in a large redbrick building. About 25 local craftsmen still work on hand looms in their homes, filling the demand for the bespoke look of a well-tailored tweed suit or cap. This classic herringbone-patterned hat is 100% wool and handcrafted in Ireland.

"Glad to have another woven hat"
I had such a hat before but it was lost. This was purchased with gift money for my birthday. It is great to have another one. The size is a bit big, but then I have a small head.
