What is Tweed? 

Tweed is a specific kind of fabric obtained from raw Shetland wool, giving it a soft and loose weave. It is known for its heavy, sturdy and rough texture and its high resistance to cold temperatures and bad weather conditions (rain and wind). 

Tweed is often woven using different color yarns in order to create unique patterns, often featuring vertical stripes or checks. The colorful effect can also be achieved by mixing solid dyed wool before spinning.

Traditionally, tweed is associated with outdoor activities, equestrian sports, and the countryside. However, the rise of country fashion has opened up many new ways of wearing tweed, highlighting it as a smart casual wardrobe staple.

Let’s now take a close look at our versatile tweed ladies' collection that serves as a fashion changer in your wardrobe.

Tweed Capes

Ladies tweed capes are a bonafide perma-trend!   Owning and dressing a quality cape will never be outdated, giving you a fantastic cost per wear. 

Because capes are also about the silhouette, not just the fabric or color, you can find an option for every occasion – whether that’s out walking, heading to meet friends for a coffee or visiting family. Here are some of our top-rated tweed capes that each lady longs to own.

Hooded Tweed Cape - Natural

The Hooded Tweed Cape in Natural is stylish and functional and provides an extra layer of protection against the elements.

Tweed capes are a timeless piece of fashion, adding rustic elegance to your look. This type of tweed cape will style up your loungewear if you’re heading to the shops or garnish a going-out outfit with elegance and grace.
